Valuation needs frequently arise when attempting to secure financing or when renegotiating a current existing obligation. Business valuations include a determination of the value of tangible assets and intangible assets. Tangible assets may include buildings, land, equipment, inventory, or receivables. Intangibles may include goodwill, customer lists, trademarks, non-compete agreements, patents or leaseholds, to name a few. Determining the market value of the company’s capital assets will help determine the ability of the business to cover its current obligations and/or projected future debt.
