Understand business valuation doesn’t have to be hard. To put it simply you either value the assets only, or you value the whole business by looking at its income and applying a multiplier. Watch this short video to see how.

Understand Business Valuation – Transcript:

Welcome to the BCI business brokers and

valuation model business valuation is
complex but it doesn’t need to be too
complex it’s much easier if you follow
the logic so the first question that
business valuer or broker is going to
what is the income return is the business making money if the answer to
that question is no the next question is

that means even though a business has no

is the highest value generally that
assets will attract is the value of all
the assets in situ plugged in business

ready to be open tomorrow and
everything’s there that’s required to

valuation method that you won’t see
discussed much in the textbooks but it’s
a pretty common sense one it’s called
the cost to create method now this is
fairly logical as well if you’re looking
at buying a going concern business and
someone wants a hundred thousand dollars
for it and you say well I could set one
up next door and be just the same as
that business not get it for 50 if the
two businesses are the same the one that
