They may also look at the company’s prospects for future growth, its reputation and the competitive landscape in which it operates.

There is no single formula for valuing a business. Generally, the value of a business is determined by comparing the business to similar businesses that have recently been sold and taking into account factors such as the size and age of the business, its growth prospects, competitive positioning, and financial performance. Professional business valuators can help you determine the value of your business.

The cost of getting a business valuation in Australia will depend on the size and complexity of the business, the type of valuation required and the qualifications of the valuer. Generally, professional business valuations can range between $5,000 to $20,000.

A business should typically be valued whenever there is a change in ownership, or when the owner is considering selling the business, merging with another company, or making a large investment.
