Five Reasons You Need a Business Valuation 

Jan 15, 2022

As a business owner or high-level executive or another stakeholder, knowing the value of your business may be important. In addition to needing a business appraisal when selling, here are five other reasons that you may require a business appraisal from a certified, experienced appraisal company. To learn more, call Allstate Appraisal directly today. 

1. When Exit Planning

When you are planning to leave your business due to retirement or other factors, knowing the value of your business will be incredibly important. This is true whether you are selling the business, liquidating the business, passing the business on to a partner or family member, or leaving the business in a different manner. 

2. To Inform Decision-Making

There are dozens of decisions that you have to make as a business owner, including decisions about mergers and acquisitions, liquidation, expansion and growth, acquiring new property or products, and more. By knowing where your business currently stands through an accurate estimate of its worth, you can make more informed decisions that support the business’s financial wellbeing and future. 

3. For Accessing Investors

Before investors will be willing to dump money into a business, they will want to know its current appraisal value and projected value. As such, an appraisal from an authorized appraiser will be necessary. Appraisals and valuations are also necessary when taking a business public. 

4. To Provide Transaction Support

Whether buying, selling, taking out a loan, merging, or acquiring a new business, there are numerous transactions that are highly complex and involve various parties and stakeholders, including lenders. Any or all of these parties may request an up-to-date appraisal of the business before a transaction can be completed. 

5. In Litigation

While no one wants to think about their business being involved in litigation, the reality is that business disputes are all too common. If involved in litigation, a business appraisal may be required to determine the scope of damages to the business or damages to be paid by the business.
