Our in-house team of business valuers are industry heavyweights with 100 years of collective experience in conducting business valuations and successfully selling businesses. Each company valuation is conducted by a qualified business valuer with extensive knowledge of valuation methodologies and industry trends. 

Our expert valuers will value your business using the latest data available on similar sales and knowledge of local marketplaces to produce a valuation report in line with industry standards.

We offer a business valuation to all genuine business sellers, subject to a valuation meeting for a fixed fee of £99 plus VAT.

During the 1-hour consultation, we will prepare your business for the sale process and share insights to maximise the market value of your business.

What’s included in the valuation consultation?

  • Guide business valuation based on similar sales
  • Assessment of the saleability of your business
  • Industry insights and guidance on how to maximise market value
  • Comprehensive advertising strategy to target suitable buyers

If you appoint Selling My Business, we will deduct this cost from your final fee as a token of our goodwill. Our pricing structure is transparent – we charge a single fixed fee to sell your business once a buyer is secured – no upfront sale-fee.

What is my business worth?

If you are wondering how much a business is worth, our business brokers and business transfer agents will navigate you throughout the company valuation process and help you make informed decisions during sales negotiations with interested parties looking to buy a business. A business valuation will assess the true market value of your business and help you plan a suitable exit strategy.

To begin the company valuation process, please arrange a consultation through the form below for a fixed fee of £99 plus VAT.

We will then request three years’ worth of company accounts from your accountant which will help us provide an accurate answer to - how much is my company worth? Many business transfer agents will carry out a basic valuation by analysing your profit and loss statement. At Selling My Business, our business valuers will conduct a forensic fact-finding exercise to eliminate the risk of underestimation and overestimation.

The market value of your business will be affected by market conditions, growth potential, risk exposure and market share. Our business valuation service is managed by our team of professional business valuers who will generate a fast and personal business valuation – not a computer-generated guess.

Business Valuation Methods

A common question asked by business sellers in addition to how to value my business is, how to value a business based on turnover and how to value a business based on profit. The Selling My Business team comprises business brokers and qualified company valuation experts with an extensive understanding of different company valuation methods.

There are many valuation routes to calculate how much a business is worth, including price to earnings ratio (P/E), asset value, industry rules of thumb, entry cost and discounted cash flow. The chosen route for your business will depend on if you’re selling a small, medium, or large UK business, your operating structure, industry, and if your business is asset or cash rich.

Having sold tens of thousands of businesses, we have substantial data on how much previous businesses sold for which can prove invaluable to the business sale process.

Why should I arrange a business valuation?

A business valuation can provide a starting point to help you establish a sale price based on market value. An accurate price tag can attract buyers with the necessary funds and appetite to buy your business. You may price your business to generate a modest profit, setting you up for life post-sale, whether this may be retirement or another business venture. A valuation report can provide hard evidence to prospective buyers by calculating how much the business is worth based on numerous factors.

Your company valuation will take into consideration tangible assets, such as property, machinery and intangible assets, such as goodwill, intellectual property which includes copyright agreements and patents. The reputation of your business will influence how much a buyer will be willing to pay, in addition to how much your company is worth. We offer a free business valuation to help you begin the business sale process today.
