Business Valuation Advisory
Business Valuation Considerations
Every business owner exits from their business at some point, willingly or unwillingly, yet 80% of businesses that go to market for the first time don’t sell. While for 75% of business owners, 12 months after they sell they regret the decision as they were underprepared, leaving money on the table.
Be prepared, don’t get caught with your 'transactional pants down' when it comes to your business’ value.
Australian businesses today have approximately 65% of their value in the form of intangible assets, compared to just 20% in 1975.
- Do you know what your intangible assets are? Or how much they are worth?
- Knowing this will help in risk mitigation, funding opportunities, strategic decision making and wealth creation.
Businesses that a) receive an external/independent valuation periodically and b) have management with a solid understanding of healthy levels of cash for working capital needs are 9 times more likely to successfully acquire funding and prosper past their 5th birthday.
Once you know the value of your business, you can put in place more effective plans and strategies for future growth, business continuation, succession planning, wealth creation and employee retention. Most importantly it allows you to manage your risk, giving you higher levels of comfort in key decision making which materially impacts the future of one of your greatest assets.

We Use Dynamic Pricing...But What Does That Mean?
One size does NOT fit all, no two valuations are exactly the same, and pricing should adjust according to the specific requirements of each valuation
