Business Valuation is an accounting method used to determine the monetary value of a business. A business valuation may be used to determine the value of a business for a variety of reasons including: determining the sale value of a business, establishing the admittance or buyout of an owner, and in divorce proceedings. Business owners should use a Certified Public Account to provide an objective assessment of the business value. Business valuations generally include the review of financial statements, cash flow, historical data, tax returns, pre-adjusted full owner perks, and similar business comparisons.
