5 reasons why every business owner needs a company valuation

Whilst a business valuation can help to get the ball rolling if you are considering a company sale, it can also be especially useful to get your company valued when you aren’t necessarily ready to sell. Here at Company Valuation Services, we believe that receiving regular company valuations throughout the lifespan of your business can be hugely beneficial. Here are five reasons why:


1. A company valuation can help you to understand the worth of your business. By learning about what your company is worth on the open market, you can progress towards the next step, whether that involves turning the company around financially, maximising its profits or pursuing a sale.


2.  An initial company valuation can set a base value. Knowing the base value of your business in the early stages can give you direction or purpose, and help you to develop a long-term strategy. Then, when a valuation is conducted at a later date, the previous valuation can be used as a benchmark to assess how your company has performed.


3. A company valuation can help you to begin planning your exit strategy. From this, you can decide how much longer to stay within the business, and the timescales necessary to achieve your desired outcome.


4. Understanding your company’s value can direct you towards the right investors or acquirers, if that is the route you decide to take. In order to present your company to a selection of potential buyers, its overall value must be known in advance.


5. If you are considering buying out another shareholder, a company valuation can help you begin the process. You need to know exactly what the company is worth as a whole, in order to ensure that you pay a fair price for the shares.


These are just a few of the many benefits that a company valuation can offer. Regardless of your reason for considering a valuation, an essential factor of the process is making sure that the valuation is undertaken by a professional and credible organisation with the right experience and knowledge.
