Business Valuation

For Florida Business Brokers, determining value is one of the first steps to getting the business for sale process started. Typically the Business Broker will work with the last three years tax returns and/or profit and loss statements as well as any equipment, asset and inventory list in order to determine the value of the business. By working closely with the business owner or officers of privately held corporations, a Business Broker is usually able to determine the value of the business with a fairly high degree of accuracy.

Florida Business opportunities with a proven track record and a verifiable income are usually what today’s savvy business buyers are after. That with a combination of SBA or seller financing usually makes for a highly marketable business opportunity.
