Business valuation services

Whether you plan to sell or buy a business, raise funds for or invest in a venture; commissioning qualified business valuation services to help determine and negotiate the best price is a good idea. Performed by a professional business valuer, the business valuation will indicate how much your business is worth and why. It will also highlight errors, irregularities and possible exclusions in the seller’s financials statements, and point to potential improvements to increase the business value.

Business valuation services are highly beneficial, yet not compulsory, for business selling or buying purposes. An independent, professionally prepared business valuation is, however, often obligatory by law for some taxation treatments, family law, shareholder and other disputes.

Professional Business Valuers are business valuation specialists, qualified Australian CPA accountants who prepare business valuation reports in compliance with professional and ethical standards established by the Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards Board (APESB). These include APES 225 Valuation Services and accounting standards issued by the Australian Accounting Standard Board (AASB).
