Business Valuations

Throughout the life of your business, the chances are, at some point you will require a formal business valuation. There are many reasons why this would be the case, and usually, business valuations are conducted for the following reasons –

  • Estate Planning
  • Divorce Settlement
  • Refinancing or business loans
  • Raising Capital
  • Restructuring your Company ( Buy Ins – Sell Outs )
  • Insurance Claims
  • Selling or Exiting your Business
  • Litigation

What is important to consider here is that a valuation is very different from an appraisal, whereas, an appraisal is usually an estimation of a price range conducted by a broker, mostly for the purposes of listing a business for sale in the marketplace, a valuation is conducted in a totally different matter. To begin with, it will usually contain a Conclusion of Value represented in a specific dollar amount, further, it is evidence based and presented in a logical, sequential and defendable format. You may surprised to know that the financial information relating to the business makes up only a small percentage of the valuation itself. Depending on the scope and purpose of the valuation, it is far more in depth, encompassing areas such as ( but not exhaustive )–

  • Business Risk
  • Industry growth
  • The transferability of any Goodwill
  • Leases and occupancy requirements
  • Staff and associated industry issues
  • What licences and Permits are required
  • Competition and barriers to entry into the industry
  • Business Capital requirements
  • Consideration of any Plant and Equipment
  • The marketability of the business ( how easy or difficult is it to sell )
  • Financial reports
  • The type of Business

We follow a structured process, ensuring the valuation is accurate and delivered on time, in accordance with the scope and purpose it was requested for. The valuation is compliant with accounting standards, adhering to the Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards Board (APES) Standards 225 and 215. APES 225 sets the standards for Members in the provision of both quality and ethical valuation services.
