While these are useful, I hope that we don’t get to use it if it will mean that we have to sell our businesses out of desperation. I know that some people do this so they can go into another venture but selling a business that you have poured your heart and soul into is just quite sad for me.
Could these companies handle valuations of international companies?
Yes, our back-office valuations team provides custom valuation reports for companies with any location or scope.
There is another company offering business valuation based on estimated earnings. They are called LaunchScore dot com and they cover hundreds of business types in hundreds of U.S. cities. What sets them apart is that they estimate the potential yearly earning of a business…so you can get a valuation without detailed knowledge of the financials.
I appreciate you posting a list of all of these business valuation calculators. I will definitely make use of them. However, is it also a good idea to pay for a business valuation? I figure that investors and potential buyers would trust those valuations more than free online versions.
Thanks for the interesting sites to help calculate business valuation! It’s nice to know that there’s no right and wrong way to work out how much a business is worth. I’d be sure to try these links out and see if they’d bring interesting results. Just to be sure, I’ll get myself a business valuation firm to confirm if the calculations are correct or lacking. If I were a business owner, this would be an awesome help.
Without measuring the relevant factors these above calculators are about as accurate as averaging the cost of shopping carts full of food as they go through the till for a day and then saying the next day every shopping cart going through will pay that same price regardless of what is there.
NOT ACCURATE AND COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE ACCURATE.
I am a CPPA and I wrote a book; “25 FACTORS AFFECTING BUSINESS VALUATION”
The valuations I do are certainly not free but they are accurate and I do about 50 a year from many sectors of the economy. Business values range from $200,000 to 20 Million in value.
Google the book name.
