Its’ goodwill or its intangible assets are also taken into consideration.   In this episode, Brandon shares his knowledge of the processes involved in selling a business, and also shares insights on how to increase your company’s value.   If you are interested in increasing the value of and selling your business, check out  these episodes too:   TSS205 – How to sell your value and maintain a solid sales process – [LINK] TSS198 – Maximising Gross Profit in Your Business – [LINK]   About this podcast, ‘Valuing Your Trade Business - What You Need to Understand’   Podcast Highlights: 03:43 – Business valuation 09:24 – Fair market value 10:18 – Compulsive buying 14:27 – Looking at financial records 20:17 – Market approach 22:30 – Valuation of a stagnant business 24:36 – The earnings approach 26:40 – Perfecting your model 29:15 – The definition of goodwill 32:30 – Value drivers 35:18 – The actual process of evaluating a company 45:04 – The importance of service agreement   Brandon shared the three approaches to assessing a business.
