Business Valuations

A business valuation is the best estimate of the fair market value of an enterprise given the known facts and assumptions at a point in time. Business valuations are crucial to decision making and negotiations, and there can be many instances where an accurate and reliable economic value of an owner’s interest in a business is essential.

Problem:  When there is the need to know the true value of business as a crucial step, for instances such as:

  • Value for partners ownership for buy & sell agreement
  • Taxation planning
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Family law and estate matters
  • Sale of a business, or as a business planning and monitoring tool.
