  • 2. I Don’t Need To Value My Business Because I Know What Some Similar Businesses Are Worth: There are so many variables in a business valuation that you should not just assume the value of your business based on other businesses. It is always better to value your business based on your business’s individual factors. Thursday, 11 July 13

A good business broker can properly analyse your figures and adjust the profit according to well established accounting procedures. Also, there are other measures of value outside profit and an experienced analyst can advise you of this.You may have assets that others want or are about to enter upon a period of prosperity after years of research and preparation for success.

  • 4. I Only Need To Value A Business When I Am Going To Sell Or Buy It Generally people think that the time for valuing a business is at the time of selling or buying it.Yes, business valuation should be done at the time of selling or buying a business. However, most business owners ignore the fact that a business should be valued regularly while running the business.
