Business valuations

A business valuation involves far more than assessing your capital, cashflow and order book – local and national economic conditions and sector competition also play an important part when arriving at a final figure.

There are many reasons why you may need to value your business assets, including:

  • A planned change in ownership due to exit planning
  • Gifting shares to family members as part of a succession plan
  • Merger or sale to another company
  • New shareholder or partner joining your business
  • Raising investment capital
  • Putting in place or updating an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP)
  • Monitoring business performance goals
  • Tax planning and negotiating with the tax authorities
  • Company buy back of shares
  • Financial reporting requirements
  • Shareholder/partner disputes
  • Divorce resulting in a split of assets
