Valuing a business is not a simple task. Nevertheless, there are circumstances - commercial, business, or for reporting purposes - in which a valuation is an absolute necessity.

Understanding the value of your business or of the assets of your business is in itself an asset.  The valuation is a crucial tool which can assist in generating maximum value when selling or buying a business.

There are a number of circumstances which require that a valuation be performed, including:

  • Acquisition of a business
  • Sale or merger of a business or its assets
  • MBO/MBI
  • Disputs among shareholders
  • Reorganization of a business
  • Financial reporting purposes

International standards:

  • IAS 36
  • IAS 38
  • IAS 39
  • IFRS 2
  • IFRS 3R

U.S. Standards:

  • FAS 141/142
  • FAS 57

Further to the going into effect of IFRS, many companies have been relying more and more on valuations for purposes of estimating fair value for financial reporting purposes.

Legal support requirements:

  • Loss of and damage to reputation
  • Loss of income generating capabilities of the business
