Our approach

Our multidisciplinary approach helps us develop a deep understanding of what makes your business valuable. We look at the whole picture to deliver a report that is commercial and robust.

We do not use software driven or form filling processes but tailor our service to each client’s needs. We offer long and short form business valuation reports, and we can give input on deal price expectations.

Business valuation process

Initial scoping

You will have an initial meeting with us (at no cost) to discuss the scope and purpose of the business valuation. We then give you a formal proposal and fixed fee quotation.

Data gathering

We collect relevant accounting and company governance documents. Our team then meets you for a fact-find discussion to develop a thorough understanding of your business.

Analysis and reporting

We analyse the gathered data, using a range of databases to provide realistic benchmarks. A draft is reviewed by you and our senior valuation staff before the final valuation report is issued.

Post valuation support

If needed, our valuation specialists can help with commercial planning, dispute negotiation, and tax issues after the valuation is complete.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your business valuation needs.
