I'm not familiar with a tool. You need to look at the different approaches that are typically used to value a business. There are pretty standard approaches. For example do a search in google for [types of business valuations]. You'll find different examples such as

-- Asset based
-- Income based
-- Market value

For example if you had a mining company the assets approach might be appropriate. While a restaurant might be based on income or market.

Typically, you'll want to use an expert experienced with valuing business (business broker, accountant, etc). You really have to look at all factors such as the assets, income generated and what the competitive market is for like businesses. Every business will be different. Eventually after a lot of research you have to put a number on it that you are comfortable with and then go and try to get the most for it. I don't know a tool that does that.
