This page links below to some of the UK’s most popular and trusted articles on the valuation of businesses.
Our standard advice is that the “free valuations” conducted by business brokers are unreliable as brokers are often motivated to flatter the vendor (you). Accepting that inflated valuation, and taking a business to market at a figure that is not reflective of current market conditions and prices, can cause serious damage to the value of the firm and make it unsellable.
At the same time, nobody wants to sell their business for less than the highest price they can get.
So, how do you arrive at a fair figure? We explain the maths. But we go further and tell you how you can create the conditions and add value to the deal in order to drive buyers to bid higher.
Note: Everything you’ve heard about business valuation is probably wrong. We take a look at common misconceptions, advise on how valuations are not written in stone and demonstrate how you can increase the worth of your business whether you run a one-man show or a large multinational.
