What is a Business Valuation?

A business valuation employs various methodologies to estimate the total dollar value of a company or an owner’s stake in a company. To determine a company’s market value, a business valuation considers tangible and intangible assets, cash flow, and other indicators. The amount or range provided by the valuation should be accurate, taking current market conditions into account.

Business Valuations FAQs

How do I determine the worth of my company?

To determine the value of your business, you can use one of several different business valuation methods. However, in order to achieve the most accurate valuation, it is critical to understand which method or combination of methods is most applicable to your business.

A simple method that can be used for your own peace of mind is to subtract your liabilities from your assets. However, it can be difficult to calculate the value of intangible assets as well as take into account different market factors. As a result, it is critical that you seek the assistance of a professional business accountant to complete a thorough business valuation for you.

How does a business get valued?

Using various valuation methods, a business valuation considers the market, income, and asset-based factors. When you use specific methods, the ATO requires justification for the method(s) used as well as how you determined the values of specific assets or liabilities in your calculation.

A specialised business accountant can also analyse various aspects of the business to obtain a more accurate valuation, such as management, capital structure, future earnings, and asset market value.

What is the times-revenue method?

The times-revenue method is a general rule that small businesses can use to estimate the value of their company. The times-revenue method provides a range by multiplying a company’s annual revenue by 0.5 or 2. For example, if your company earned $500,000 in revenue, its estimated worth is between $250,000 and $1,000,000.

This is a very broad range that does not account for many factors. As a result, a specialised business accountant can provide you with a far more accurate valuation using various valuation methods.

What are the 5 methods of a business valuation?

Business valuation is built on five pillars. They are as follows:

  • Asset valuation
  • Relative business value
  • Historical earnings
  • Discount cash flow evaluation
  • Maintainable future earnings

The calculation of all of your assets, such as cash, equipment, inventory, stocks, patents, real estate, and so on, is known as asset valuation. Historical earnings examine your company’s past performance in areas such as debt payments, gross income, and cash flow capitalisation. Your company’s value will increase or decrease depending on how well it performs in these areas.

Relative valuation compares your company to similar companies to see how much they were sold for or valued at. Discount cash flow evaluations take your company’s future net cash flow and discount it to present-day values. This allows you to estimate how much money you could make from your business assets in the future. Finally, maintainable future earnings assess your company’s future profitability by looking at previous years and projecting a forecast.

What is a pre-money valuation?

Pre-money valuations are the overall value of a company before any capital investments are made. This initial valuation is typically determined by assessing the company’s assets, revenue, liabilities, profits, and other factors. It is also necessary to investigate the company’s business plan and market strategy, as well as competitors, and relevant market and external economic factors.

Pre-money assessments are based on the company’s value prior to any fundraising.

What is a post-money valuation?

Post-money valuations are performed after a company has received capital investment, typically through fundraising. Within any post-money offer for a business by an investor, there is an implied pre-money valuation amount within it.

The company’s share price is calculated by dividing the pre-money valuation by the number of outstanding shares. When a new investor invests money, new shares must be issued. This will increase the total number of shares while diluting the original shareholder portions.
