Affordable, accurate & rapid business valuations


Why would you need to know what a business is worth?

  • Buying, selling or merging a business

    Selling part or all of your business? Looking to buy one? If you’re selling your business, make sure you don’t lose out on all the years of work you’ve put in by pricing it too low. And if you’re buying a business, gain confidence that you’re not overpaying.

  • Raising funds

    Need to take advantage of opportunities as a business owner but lack the cash? If you want to raise capital through equity, bank finance or crowdfunding, you and your potential investors or lenders may need a valuation of your business from a trusted source to negotiate fair terms.

  • Financial planning

    Own a family business? Is a large part of your net worth tied up in a private company? For life events like retirement or divorce, or if you’re doing estate planning, you need a realistic idea of the business’s value. And if you’ve inherited one, find out the true value of the asset you’ve just received.

  • Ongoing strategic knowledge

    Keen to know and increase what your business is worth? Like public companies benefit from seeing their stock price every day, measuring the valuation of your business over time using consistent markers and KPIs can help you make better strategic decisions, and show you where your company may be lagging compared to its industry peers.

  • Enabling investors, financial advisors, bankers and insurers

    Invest in private companies regularly? Extend loans to private companies or insure small businesses? Use our company valuation reports for your clients, or your own internal stakeholders, in order to assess performance and make more informed decisions.
