Assemblage of Assets

Premise of Business Value

Definition

The assumption made during business valuation that the business and its assets are organized but are not currently used to generate earnings.

What It Means

This business valuation premise assumes that the business assets have been assembled in place but are not currently used to produce income. The typical situations in which this assumption is made are when valuing businesses whose operations have been temporarily halted and young start-ups before they open their doors.
