Valuation of businesses, intangible assets, financial instruments etc involves a process of determining how much the business, intangible assets or financial instruments are worth. It is a complex process that considers a variety of factors, including but not limited to the company's businesses, financial performance, financial position, expected future financial performance, business environment, industry outlook etc.
There are many reasons why management and business owners might want to get their businesses valued. Some of the most common reasons include:

- Exit strategy planning
- Estate planning
- Marital dissolution
