Business Valuations for Business Purchase.
When an individual, partnership or company is contemplating buying a business, the very first thing they should do is have a business valuation prepared by an expert in business valuations
It is in the interests of almost all the parties associated with the seller, be they business brokers, the owners themselves or their accountants, to get as high a figure for the business as possible. Sometimes there is no rationale for the asking price of a business. Not only will a business valuation focus on areas of concern or future improvement, it will also ensure that you don't pay too much for business. It will explain the calculations performed and also elaborate on the assumptions underlying the parameters applied. This will explain why certain multipliers or discount rates were applied to arrive at the conclusion of value. All our business valuation reports are concise, understandable and completely transparent. It is always worth remembering that the small cost of a business valuation can save many tens of thousands of dollars during a business transaction.
Paying too much for a business can have far reaching consequences. Obviously, if you have just bought a business, you intend to operate the business with the management operating in a rational way with a goal of maximising the value of the business. However, there are numerous circumstances that may preclude this from happening. Whether the reason is failing health, marital separation or even just not being suited to the business or industry, should you decide to sell the business, and you discover you have paid too much for it, the worst case scenario is that you are left with no business and a sizeable business debt. Although this is the worst case scenario, isn’t as rare or unusual as you would expect.
There are a great many benefits of a properly prepared business valuation, but one of the most useful is that there is a far better chance of a sale being completed if both buyer and seller start with realistic expectations.
