The answer to this question depends on the use you have in mind for the valuation. If you are seeking a loan, or are dealing with litigation, you will want to seek you a certified business evaluator, probably with a CPA certification. However, if you are considering selling your business, or are dealing with investors, or are looking to buy another business you can use an online service, like EZaluate.com to value your business. I used them for my valuation and was able to go into negotiations well informed. Good luck!

One can obtain a small business valuation by calculating the amount of income the business received in a given year. Once this is known, one can have an estimate of what their business is worth.
Yes, first get a professional business valuation report once you decide to sell your business. Without the business valuation report it would not be possible to name your price. You will need a point of reference or standard against which you could measure the offers and deals. Or else you will not know whether a deal is going to be a profitable deal or not. Only when you have a detailed business valuation report, it would be possible to negotiate the deal when you have the offers on the table.

As a business owner, or someone looking to purchase a business, a valuation is incredibly, well, "valuable". Everything else in our lives seems to have a price, but so often small business owners have no idea how much their businesses are worth. A good business valuation can be useful in tracking the success of a business over time, securing a loan, dealing with investors, satisfying an owners curiousity, and is a necesity if you are looking to sell or aquire a business. The disadvantages are obvious, in that the valuation is purely theoretical, and a business is only worth what someone will pay for it. I had my business valued by EZaluate.com and found the valuation to be extremely precise and wound up selling for only $3000 more than they said the business was worth. It's all about finding the right valuator, and ensuring that they use the right method. The Discounted Cash Flow method is most accurate, and widely used on Wall Street.
