Getting to a value for your business will in large part be a function of tax return analysis, coupled with an interview with you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the workings of your company. We’ll walk you through the valuation process, and the role that will be played by a lender to your buyer.
We find there is much wisdom in arranging face-to-face meetings wherein our prospective sellers come to our offices with copies of their most recent tax returns for their businesses. Your business is not like a share of stock – worth exactly what somebody else is willing to pay for it.
Most business sales are bank financed (like homes.) Those lending banks have underwriting departments and hire business appraisers who will peg a value for your business.
As you will learn in working with us, most business values relate to a multiple of Owner’s Cash Flow.
