A business valuation is a general process of determining the economic value of a whole business or company unit. Business valuation can be used to determine the fair value of a business for a variety of reasons, including sale value, establishing partner ownership, taxation, and even divorce proceedings. There are many different ways of valuation but the most popular and commonly used is the Discounted CashFlow Basis. With many e-commerce and tech businesses mushrooming in the B2C marketplace, newer valuation methods are evolving. IFC Team keeps their knowledge up to date with the trends on valuations and has helped many young Entrepreneurs with creating pitch deck including Business Valuation.
