Business Valuation Services
Does your business or shares in a company require a valuation? If so, selling or buying a business is a big decision that requires time and an expert’s professional assessment of value. Of course, there are many reasons for business valuations. You might need it for specific taxation requirements to assist with ATO disputes or capital gains tax concessions. Or, you may require the market value of shares for insurance purposes and planning for succession.
Understanding your business’s shares and asset’s value is a crucial step, both at the outset of your plans and throughout, to better ensure you are maximising that value to its full potential. As a result, business valuations are crucial to your strategic financial goals. Fail to do so, transactions and strategic plans can fall through, and the actual value of your market shares drops.
Whatever the reason, our certified team of experts can assist with valuing them.
We are not your average accountant who is likely to give you a “back of a notepad” valuation which is expected to be inaccurate and misleading.
At Verus Accountants & Advisors, our team of certified accountants will work with you one-on-one to pinpoint the best valuation approach tailored to your financial needs. Whatever your goals, our services will ensure you make the most out of the value of your business.
What is Business Valuation?
Business valuation refers to the process of determining the fair value of an entire business or a company unit. The valuation of a business can be needed for many reasons, including the sale value, assisting in taxation, establishing partner ownership or even moving along divorced proceedings. Business owners will usually turn to professional accountants or business valuations for a more accurate estimation of the market value of their shares or business.
