Add up the value of everything the business owns, including all equipment and inventory. Subtract any debts or liabilities. The value of the business’s balance sheet is at least a starting point for determining the business’s worth. But the business is probably worth a lot more than its net assets due to goodwill. Business goodwill is an intangible asset owned by and associated with the operation of a company. The goodwill of a company increases its value, as qualities such as the company’s customer base, its brands, products, location, workforce, and reputation demonstrate the company’s proven track record of generating income.
