Of the 28 million small businesses in the United States, many have owners who don't know the true worth of their company. But knowing the value of your business is an integral part of the planning process. Here are 4 reasons you may want to have a business valuation performed:

1.  Secure Your Future
With a business valuation, you can develop a retirement plan that accounts for the money you'll receive from your business's future sale or revenue, helping you build a secure retirement for both yourself and your employees.


2.  Develop a Succession Plan
A current and accurate business valuation is a critical component of business succession planning. If you plan to sell the business to a family member or business partner with a buy/sell agreement, an accurate valuation will help inform funding decisions. Having a plan in place can ensure that the business is continued or exited on your terms.

Follow up and stay in touch. With all of the running around with networking events, work and personal responsibilities it is easy to forget to stay in contact with friends and potential referral sources. Set aside time each month to call your connections, see how they are doing and determine how you can help them.

Imagine being able to assist local charities by doing something as simple as offering your employees access to beverages in your facility. Coca-Cola, in partnership with CCSNJ, offers members access to the Vend4Cause program. Vending machines and/or coolers supported by Coca-Cola can be placed in your business and a portion of every dollar spent is given to a charity of your choice. For more information click here.
