Online Business Valuation

Overview

Business owners rely on Online Business Valuation to value their business because it’s fast, inexpensive and easy to use.  No valuation experience required!

This on-line service is specifically designed for business owners to provide a fast and easy estimate of value for your business. The service is built using a combination of eight valuation methodologies, and a comparative database of over 35,000 businesses that have already sold in hundreds of industries (like an MLS for business sales).   Based on these methods and comparable sales data, Online Business Valuation estimates the value of your business and provides you with a customized 38-page report.

Why To Buy

Finding out what your business is worth is fast and easy – and incredibly cost effective when you aren’t yet ready for a formal business valuation. Whether you are the business owner, a partner, an investor or a shareholder, you will find the report provides an invaluable initial perspective on value when you are trying to:

  • Raise new capital or obtain loans
  • Change the structure of the company
  • Sell all or part of the company
  • Evaluate a company acquisition
  • Plan a tax strategy
  • Plan an exit strategy
  • Develop an Estate plan
  • Consider legal action
  • Consider retaining a professional appraiser
  • Maintain the value of your business through a divorce

How it Works

The service is interactive and provides you an immediate, grounded, and a reasonable estimate of the value of your business. The resulting 38-page report explains how your estimate of value was determined. This report is not a professional valuation of your business and is not suitable for submitting to the IRS or as evidence in a legal proceeding; however, it gives you a great ball park number to start with. If you need more precise and detailed information, you should use a professional valuator.
