Top Benefits of Getting a Business Valuation in New Jersey

By Achim Neumann

Performing a business valuation is essentially a check box that details the figures and information on the actual value or worth of your company in terms of income, assets, and your competition.

If you are based in New Jersey, and haven’t performed a business valuation in NJ in the previous 12 months, then you should contact a business valuation professional as soon as possible. The outcome of getting an independent business valuation is crucial for you to know your current position, not just with regards to your competition but also where you are standing in the market right now.

It is recommended that an independent business valuation in New Jersey should be conducted yearly in order to track growth. This is especially true with small entrepreneurs who rely on their business as their livelihood. The close link between their own personal wealth and to that of their company means they should always be on top of their business’ valuation.

Here are the top benefits of getting a business valuation in New Jersey:

  1. Know Your Company’s True Value — You may think you know your business, but you would be surprised by how much you are missing out in terms of the asset calculation, bank account balances, expenses, future returns, etc.
  2. Should You Decide to Sell — If somewhere down the line you decide to sell your business, the business valuation would be a crucial document for the prospective buyer. This will give you a baseline for negotiations. Nevertheless, the potential buyer will conduct their own business valuation and both parties go from there, but showing yearly business valuations show you are, and have been diligent with the management of your company.
  3. Get On Top of Your Company’s Assets — In a successful business, nobody likes surprises. Getting all the facts is key to anticipate possible shifts in the market, personnel, and opportunities. Knowing all your assets is also important for insurance purposes. In the same vein, your insurer likes actual figures and not just estimates in order to come up with the right number for coverage.
  4. Make it Easier for Your Investors — When you are trying to sell your company to potential investors, you want to impress them with your preparedness. The first thing that the investor will look at is an independent business valuation from a certified professional. The valuation will also include the projected growth as a result of a funding infusion.
  5. Mergers and Acquisitions  — A business valuation will enable you to identify the key growth indicators for your company. During mergers and acquisitions, the interested buyer would want to know the actual value of your business, including its assets and projected growth. Knowing the actual value would put you in a better position to negotiate for the best terms. You should understand that the potential buyer would quote the smallest number as possible. If you have no facts in hand, you might be persuaded into selling the company for much less than it’s actually worth.


There are three main approaches to a business valuation. These are comparable analysis, discounted cash flow method, and precedent transactions analysis. For smaller companies in New Jersey, do at least one or two of these methods if your budget is limited. The important thing, however, is to make the business valuation a regular part of your annual routine.

Client Testimonials

“Working with Marc and his company was a pleasure. What I thought was going to be a just another one of those pushy sales companies was just the opposite. Polite, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to and deal with. Marc handled most of the interaction and he has one of the greatest demeanors. Again, it was a pleasure working with him and his firm.”

Douglas DiCeglio

“I recently completed an acquisition using A Neumann & Associates. Tony Valentino was very helpful and accessible during the entire process. They do a thorough job vetting both parties and got us to the finish line.”

Srini Mudambi

“Claus out of Florida helped us with the sale of our business. We had never done anything like this and him and his team walked us through the process from start to finish. We had some challenges through the process and Claus continued to show up even in the difficult conversations.”

Colby Harris, Co-Owner, Del Mar Designs

“Claus Madsen thoroughly helped us with selling our company. From the 1st introductory meeting explaining to us what was possible, to providing us with resources to assist with the sale. Claus was invaluable throughout the whole sales process. Claus was with us every step of the journey and always made himself available for any questions or issues that came up along the way. If you are interested in selling your business, I encourage you to reach out to Claus and the ANA team so that they can let you know what’s achievable. These guys will make it happen!”

“I wanted to take a second to commend the exemplary customer service from both you [Karin Neumann] and Mr. Valentino. It’s both a rarity in the industry, and very much appreciated.”

Andrew G., Investor

“We worked with Neumann & Associates to investigate the purchase of a research company in 2010 and found Achim to be capable, forthright and realistic. His depth of experience enabled us to fully understand our options, offering creative options that might enable the acquisition. While we didn’t acquire that particular company at that time, we know exactly who to call whenever we’re looking to buy or sell a business.”

Daniel Coates, Buyer

“Purchasing a business through this firm was a pleasure. Gary was very professional and transparent throughout the entire process. I look forward to working with A Neumann & Associates in the future.”

Edward Lane , Business Owner

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Achim, who explained the process in detail. He had his colleague Gary come to my office in order to get a clear understanding of my business, and what I was hoping to accomplish. His patience in answering all my questions and his knowledge of the proper way to market my business gave me great confidence that this is the firm I will be using when the time comes for me to sell my business for max value. They gave me great insight into the steps I need to take now to get the best deal in the future. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. They not only know their stuff, their actually just real nice guys.”
