Thinking of buying or selling a business or company? Obtaining an independent business valuation from a valuation expert is a critical first step. Our experienced business valuation professionals know exactly how to value a business or company for sale, purchase or other circumstances, regardless of the type of business, its size or structure. Having a trusted independent valuer to work with and advise you through the business valuation process is vital, so you can be completely confident knowing the current market value of the business or company.
Business valuations may be required for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Purchase, sale or merger of a business and related assets
- Management or individual buy outs
- Matrimonial disputes
- Family and succession planning
- Joint ventures
- Investment review
- Loss of earnings claims
- Due diligence
- Capital raisings or initial public offerings (IPO)
Our business appraisal experts also provide general accounting and tax services to a wide range of businesses within a wide range of industries. This is intentional – it ensures we’re in touch with everything relevant to the business community, and places us in the strongest position to accurately assess the market value of a company.
A business is so much more than just financial statements and profit performance. While a valuation based on revenue may suit many businesses, during the business valuation process we consider every facet including the various intangible assets which contribute to a business’ value. Intangible assets such as goodwill, key staff, customer relationships, franchises, leases, patents and marketing collateral can all add a significant competitive advantage.
