Business valuation is a process and a set of procedures used to estimate the economic value of an owner’s interest in a business.
It is used in the financial and business markets to determine the price that market participants are willing to pay or receive to effect a sale or purchase of a business or an entity. It is critical to have clarity around the worth of your business or assets.

It encompasses estimating the values of individual assets and liabilities, which typically include intangible assets, property, plant and equipment, real estate and financial instruments such as debts, derivatives and hybrid securities.
Regulators are demanding greater transparency through fair value reporting, putting more emphasis on the importance of valuation and value analysis. With the rise of fair value accounting, the realm of financial reporting has also required the valuation of assets and liabilities.
