How It Works

Business Valuation: How It Works 

You may be shopping for a business valuation the same way you shop for other goods and services. If you are, you will need some criteria by which to evaluate your candidates. Price is always a concern, but it shouldn’t be your only concern. Below, we explain exactly what goes into our business valuations and what you can expect to gain from your assessment. 

What Is My Business Worth? 

Whether you own a large company or you are in the market for a small business valuation, you want to ensure it is accurate. Your reasons for needing to find your business’s value are many: you may be selling, considering a merger or making a payout as part of a buyout or divorce settlement. 

But valuating a business is so much more than looking at assets and liabilities, profits and losses, income and expenses. That is definitely part of your business valuation, but our CPAs dig deeply into your company’s finances and do extensive research on the value of similar companies that have sold recently. We have access to databases listing over 50,000 transactions, so you know that we are doing our homework. 

Experienced Business Valuation Company 

At its core, business valuations are scientific. They’re about money, cost, value, debt, appreciation, depreciation, interest and other facts and figures. That’s the crux of accounting, but certified public accountants go beyond this to make projections such as those surrounding growth, earnings, industry trends, competition and more. 

The more experience you have as a CPA, the more accurate your predictions are. That’s why a business valuation company’s longevity and reputation are important. Our founder has been a respected CPA for decades and has overseen the production of hundreds of business valuations, and that is how My Biz Value has achieved such phenomenal growth. 

Additionally, our business appraiser company has a perfect 5.0-star rating on Google. If you read the reviews, you will see that our customers love our pricing, responsiveness, thoroughness and professionalism. But what they love most of all is our founder’s dedication to fully explain the business valuation process and what it means to the owner or buyer. Accounting is a complex discipline, and having the skill to interpret it so that the layperson can understand the details is important. At My Biz Value, we take the time to do that, and we are always available to answer questions. 

  • Order your Valuation Report and pay with a credit card.

  • You can then choose to either:

    A. Email the documents needed directly, or

    B. Register as a new user and upload the documents online, returning as necessary until all of the documents have been uploaded.

  • Once the necessary documents have been emailed or securely uploaded, we will start your valuation and reach out with any questions we may have. The valuation takes approximately 7 business days to complete.

  • You will receive the valuation and an invitation to set up a follow up call via email once the report is completed. The follow up call will be with Rick Krebs, CPA, the author of the report. He will review the report with you, answer your questions and explain how he arrived at the valuation number.

Information you will need to provide:

  • Complete a Valuation Questionnaire.
  • Past 3 tax returns and/or past 3 YTD P&L’s and Balance Sheets through the most recent month.
  • Accounts Receivable listing if AR is not listed on the Balance Sheet.

Clear Business Value Assessments 

Whether you’re buying or selling, you need to have an accurate business valuation from which to negotiate the sale. Without it, expensive mistakes can be made. If you overestimate the value of your business, you may lose out on a fair bid. If you underestimate it, you could lose tens of thousands of dollars or more. Those looking to purchase businesses do not want to overpay needlessly, nor do they want to underbid and miss an opportunity. 

We are here to help you make sure none of this happens. The role of My Biz Value is to fairly valuate your business and protect your interests, wherever they lie. Contact us today for more information.
