A business valuation can help you determine the true value of your company. If an owner underestimates, they may undersell themselves and miss out on potential profits. Valuing a business might include looking at future earnings prospects, analyzing company management skills or even assessing what market value an asset has in excess to cover debts incurred from other transactions.
