Being a professional business valuer, we feel that each business operates differently; they may belong to the same industry but running it differently. Each business has its own culture, clientele, suppliers and management style. There is no fixed method to value a business: each business has its own merits and benchmark. Several methods, factors need to be considered to value a business.

We may use one or a combination of the following methods or may add a few more methods to appraise a business:

  • Based on sales
  • Profit based valuation
  • Asset based valuation
  • Industry Benchmark
  • Rule of thumb
  • Comparable Sales method
  • Capitalization of Future Maintainable Earnings (CFME)
  • Calculating a business net worth
  • Based on the business’s income or profits and the expected return on investment (ROI)
  • Earning multiple
  • Calculation of net assets on a going-concern basis.

Besides the above we will consider the factors such as:

  • Age of the business
  • Product
  • IP (intellectual property) /brand, Social Media reviews
  • Industry
  • Customers (database)
  • Suppliers
  • Rent & Lease: Outgoings (included Body Corporation, Promotion and advertising expenses), Rates and business operating expenses.
