Business valuation services for all scenarios

Our business valuation services will help you whether you are buying, selling, retiring or something else.

We will help you determine what a business is really worth.

Maybe you would just like to know what your business is worth. Or maybe you are looking to buy a business but want to know if the asking price is realistic.

Whatever your reason for a business valuation, Maynard Johns Chartered Accountants are here to help.

Why get a business valuation?

There are a number of reasons why you may want to know the value of a business. These include:

  • To sell your business
  • To buy a business
  • To raise finance
  • To set up an employee share scheme
  • To assess an individual’s net worth in a divorce or legal settlement
  • For strategic planning of what to do with the business in the future
  • For tax planning

If you currently use Xero, Sage or Quickbooks as your accountancy software, we can create a report with multiple valuations very quickly. If not, we can still create a report although it may take slightly longer.

How does getting a business valuation work?

For us to provide you with a business valuation we will require/undertake the following (please note this list is not exhaustive depending upon your individual business):

  • Details of the current business ownership and how long it has been trading
  • We would start with a meeting to get to know the business and understand trends and any one-off events or unusual trading activity in the last 3 years and to discuss the current trends of the industry in which the business works
  • Understand the key personnel in the business, the roles they carry out and how much each of them is paid
  • Details of major customers and suppliers particularly if there is a reliance on one or two large customers/suppliers
  • The last 3 years of finalised accounts and if this is over 3 months old current data for this year
  • Access to online accounting data, where available
  • Details of premises used by the business and who owns this and details of any rent or lease agreements
  • A current value of balance sheet items such as equipment and stock
  • Details of any finance agreements or loans that the business has
  • Details of any licenses, contracts, dealerships or distributor agreements that the business holds
  • The geographical area in which the business operates

Information required when you are buying a business:

  • What skills and experience you have to run this business
  • Any cost savings or profit improvements that you feel you can bring to this business

Our business valuation services start from just £500 + VAT to include a full written report and to discuss this with you.
