Business Valuation Services In Dubai,UAE

Business Valuation is the process of determining the current value of a business, taking into consideration various factors like assets, liabilities, income, management and the location that the company holds. 

Determining the value is essential for the company as well as for its stakeholders as it can help you in making important decisions. It requires high-level financial analysis that is to be conducted by a qualified valuation professional with the appropriate authorizations. 

Basically, a company is priced on the basis of its market value. Wide-Ranging valuation analysis and the valuation report done by a valuation professional will ascertain significant benefits, which may be lost if the business owner goes for a low-cost valuation. These benefits help business owners get a better price, or reduce the financial risk of the management in litigation or other events.

A business valuation is based on the following tools: -

  • Asset-Based Valuation

The asset-based valuation considers the basic business assets in order to estimate the value of the overall business enterprise. This technique is good for corporations, but it will be challenging if applied to a sole proprietorship, because, since the assets belong to the same owner, it will be difficult to separate the same for personal use and business purposes. 

  • Market-Based Valuation

Under the Market-based valuation, the marketplace is considered for the business value. It compares the value of one’s business to another similar business which is sold recently.

  • Income-Based Valuation

The Income-based valuation method is based on the economic principle of expectation to determine the value of a business, i.e. the real value of a business lies in building wealth for the future. Based on this fact, an evaluator ascertains the upcoming cash flow by examining the records, and also assesses the upcoming financial risk.

All these approaches may bring different estimates of value for the same asset at the same time. If you want to know the real estimate, you have to use all these approaches to reach a final conclusion.
