Business Valuation

One of the initial steps in selling a business is to determine its value in order to establish the asking price.  There are many different approaches to placing a value on a business – from simple rules of thumb, to very complex calculations.  It can be daunting for the business owner that embarks on the task of doing it themselves.  Placing a well documented and appropriate valuation on a business is essential to getting the best price for the business and turning interested prospects into buyers.  Contact us to arrange for a free, no obligation business valuation.
