Hairdresser Business Valuations

How to value a hairdressing private limited company or small hair and beauty business.

Every business or company, regardless of industry sector, is likely to require a valuation at some stage.

There is no single formula that can be used to precisely value every private business. For example, in the case of business transfer, the seller will want to drive the price up, and potential buyers will want the opposite.

Although there are relatively easy ways to value certain parts of the business - such as stock, fixed assets (land, machinery, equipment etc), there will very probably be a sizeable intangible element to the value of a hairdressing business.

Intangible elements would include 'goodwill', which could include intellectual property, trademarks, and the reputation of the company. Such assets are notoriously difficult to value without direct expertise.

When looking at the overall value of a business, there are a number of different valuation methods that are commonly used - from using earnings multiples, to calculating how much it would cost to create a similar business.

R A Valuation Services Limited specialises in providing valuations for hairdresser businesses in the UK and Europe for the purpose of business sale and purchase, partnership or shareholder change, litigation, matrimonial and legal separation, incorporation, tax settlements, borrowings and business development.

An accurate and independent assessment of the value of a business is an essential tool in any form of business change or development. Our Valuation reports are an important, if not vital, aid to business owners, prospective purchasers and their financial and legal advisers.
