How Do I Find Out What My Business Is Truly Worth?

The unfortunate reality is that business owners and other non-professionals can get a company’s value wrong. Shareholders are liable to greatly oversell or undersell the actual number. In some cases, this is due to an honest mistake; in other situations, however, this may be purposeful. Additionally, the time-sensitive nature of such important business decisions can cause owners to make an impulsive, ill-informed choice. This is why many company owners turn to professional CPAs to provide them with the best possible information to make decisions.

Our accountants have years of experience conducting business valuations. We understand the process from top to bottom. Our CPAs compare the business to similar businesses in the same sector and location. We analyze the company’s financial records and statements in depth to understand the business’ true worth. In the event of a legal dispute, such as a divorce, our accountants can back up our findings in court and leverage our connections to leading lawyers.

What Are The Common Methods Of Business Valuation?

There are numerous business valuation methods that can help determine the worth of your company. Below are some of the more common methods of valuation.


Market Valuation

Market valuation is calculated by considering the value of comparable businesses that have been sold and using that estimate to calculate your business’ worth. The market valuation method is typically a useful preliminary approach to business valuation.

Asset-Based Valuation

The asset-based valuation method takes your business’ total net asset value (tangible and intangible items) and subtracts the total liabilities to get an estimate of your company’s worth.

Return On Investment (ROI)-Based Valuation

The ROI-based method of business valuation is based on your company’s overall profits and estimates the potential return on investment for the buyer acquiring the business.

Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) Valuation

The DCF method of business valuation uses the company’s future cash flows and discounts them to present day values to estimate business worth.

What If I’m Looking To Buy A Business? Do You Help With Those Valuations As Well?

Yes. Not only can we help appraise your business, but we can also accurately estimate the worth of a company you’re looking to buy. The business owner may tell you one figure, but after a thorough investigation, that business value may be incorrect. You may end up paying out more than the business is worth. Our certified public accountants can evaluate the business you are looking to acquire to help you understand its true market value.

When Are Business Valuation Services Necessary?

Business valuations are most often necessary during business sales and buy-sell negotiations. These time-sensitive situations require quick decisions. Having professionals with the necessary experience is often the best route, instead of going through the process yourself without the proper guidance. Below are some common scenarios that require business valuation services:

  • Business Sales
  • Buy-Sell Negotiations
  • Shareholder Buyouts
  • Divorce Disputes
  • Corporate Litigations
  • Gift & Estate Tax
