Factors considered when determining the Value of a Business

Posted by BEACo on March 1, 2020

As a Southern California business owner, determining the value of your business is one of the wisest decisions you can make. Whether you are looking to sell your business in the future, nearing the age of retirement, looking to expand your business, or planning for your personal life, knowing the value of your enterprise will arm you with the facts and figured needed to make sound professional decisions.

But what does an appraisal or valuation of your business entail?
Appraisers in Southern California and beyond measure a variety of factors when valuing a business. Some of the questions an appraiser will consider include:
  • What is the intended use of your appraisal?
  • What kind of business is being valued?
  • What type of entity is your business? (A Corporation, limited liability, a partnership etc.)
  • Who are your current or intended clients?
  • Where are your business’s headquarters or offices located?
  • What type of value is being assessed? (Market value, investment value, etc.)
  • What is the level of value being assessed? (Strategic control, financial control, marketable value, etc.)
  • Are there any other hypothetical or extraordinary considerations to take into account?
Once an appraiser gathers and considers all the relevant information required to determine your business’s value, what kind of knowledge will you be left with?
For starters, appraisers provide a figure or range of figures that give you a profile of your business’s worth and potential. A fact-based, unambiguous appraisal is a valuable piece of information to have, whether you’re thinking about selling your business, going through litigation, appraising for tax purposes, satisfying ESOP requirements, or making changes in your personal life. Getting a clear-cut valuation allows you to make the best decisions for your business and for your future.
