What is your business worth?
All businesses have to undergo the process of a valuation at one point or another. Business valuations are an independent assessment and estimation of the value of your business. Valuations can be conducted for the whole business, just the assets or the intangibles depending on your needs.
Valuations can be conducted for a wide range of reasons including:
- purchase, sale or merger of a business or any of its related assets
- litigation (including family law)
- management buyouts
- family and succession planning
- joint ventures
- review of potential investments
- due diligence
- minority shareholdings
- capital raisings or intitial public offerings (IPOs)
- dispute resolution
- capital gains tax and stamp duty
- long term employee incentive programs
An effective valuation takes into consideration all aspects of the business – financial accounts, history, business structure, industry, people structure, limitations, competitor analysis and systems to develop a holistic view of the organisation. We can use this information not only to determine the value of the company, but to help identify areas of improvement and focus.
We didn’t learn how to value from a text book. In our view you can’t value a business from your office. We understand the importance of visiting your business to get a first hand understanding of the organisation and issues you face. It is also important to us that all of our staff in the business valuation team also work with general accounting and taxation services for SME’s to ensure they are in touch with relevant industry issues, risks and opportunities.
It is our mission to provide you with the best estimate of the true market value of your business.
