How much of your wealth is tied up in your business?

When you have most of your financial “eggs” in one basket, it is a good idea to watch that basket! Successful business owners are checking the value of their business every year, as part of their family wealth creation plan, and to reduce their value gap risk.

Eight in ten SMEs don’t know nor are they aware they have a value gap risk!

A value gap risk is the difference between what your business is worth today and what you need it be worth  to achieve your personal, family and business life plans. Our Business Valuation Service will show you the true value of your business, and can be easily updated to highlight changes over time. The key outcome is an accurate, cost effective valuation assessment of your business.

We use industry valuation benchmarks to pin point areas where you can improve your business value. With ‘what if’ and ‘revaluation’ analysis technology we can create a plan for you to get to (or exceed) your desired business value.

You can also use it when selling your business or planning for succession or asset protection.

If you want to grow the value of your business, we provide ongoing support which can be tailored to your goals, and your budget. Walker Wayland can work closely with you, looking at your whole business, not just the numbers.
