An assessment is an essential step when considering the sale of a business, conducting due diligence for M&A, establishing an ESOP, estate planning, or negotiating an owner buyout. A complete assessment process should incorporate a mix of business and market assessment, analysis of comparable companies and similar transactions, financial review, and accounting expertise. Accurately determining the value of a business can seem like a daunting task.
