Going concern value and the definition of going concern. Broadly speaking going concern is referring to a business operating at a profit, which is expected to trade for the foreseeable future.
The foreseeable future for this purpose is normally regarded as 12 months. Going concern value is key if you are selling a business as a going concern. Likewise if you are buying a business as a going concern, you will be keen to know whether the business is likely to continue trading into the foreseeable future.
