Business Valuation

At Harvie Green Wyatt, we’re skilled and experienced in business valuation. We can provide you with simple guidelines and formulas for evaluating the worth of your business. In addition, we’re able to appear in court and arbitration as expert witnesses concerning business valuations.


What is business valuation? 

Business valuation is the process of determining how much your business is worth, taking your debts, assets, and liabilities into account. By looking at factors such as equipment, property, inventory and liquid assets, we can help you develop an independent and accurate valuation. 

There are several different valuation methods, and the nature of your business will determine which one suits you best. While a valuation based on revenue may be suitable for most businesses, there are other factors to consider.

The benefits of business valuation

Whether you’re a small business owner or the director of a larger organisation, knowing the economic value of your business can come in handy for planning or making investment decisions. When selling a business, whether it's for liquid assets or to continue operations under new management, it’s critical for both buyer and seller to understand what the business is worth. 

There are several other times where you may need a business valuation, including: 

  • Trying to get a business loan
  • Considering a merger
  • Have a shareholder leave the company
  • Restructuring your business
  • Planning your retirement
  • Succession planning
