Business valuation services - FAQ

What is business valuation?

The valuation provided is a theoretical value that will give you an idea of the fair price for the company. However, you should not rely solely on the judgment of an accountant or salesperson. There are several guidelines and a code of ethics from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators (CICBV) that can be used to guide you through this step.

What is the difference between a valuation and an appraisal?

They're synonyms and both are used interchangeably in the field of business valuation services. So don't panic if one professional talks about a valuation while another speaks about an appraisal. They both mean the exact same thing: determining the value of your business. Therefore you can receive the same help from an appraisal professional or a business valuator.

Who needs business valuation services?

You don't need to be actively looking for fairness opinions or to sell your company in order to benefit from business valuation services. They can be incredibly useful to know your worth, help you during negotiations, resolving a shareholder dispute or legal dispute, or show your clients that your business is doing well. There are plenty of reasons to use business valuation services and it's never too early or too late!

How does a chartered business valuator actually value a business?

A chartered business valuator will use various business valuation methods in order to determine the value of your company. As a matter of fact, valuing a business goes beyond science and algorithms and there are various approaches to business valuation. To get accurate and consistent results, you need the experience and knowledge of an industry. A chartered business valuator will know this for you. However, several basic methods will always be appropriate, such as Assets value, Startup cost method, Industry precedent, discounted cash flow, and multiple earnings.

What does a valuation report include?

Our extensive and comprehensive report will give you insight into how your business is doing regarding the exceptional services you offer, products, as well as financial standing. It gives you an idea of what experts think the net worth of your business is and the reason why they reached that number. Also, it highlights the different valuation methods used and a ratio analysis showing its performance.
