Valuations and due diligence

We have experience in preparing valuations of businesses for purposes of sale, restructuring, the addition of new investors or partners, the division of business assets in a marriage breakdown or succession planning.  We also have performed due diligence reviews on companies and businesses that our clients wish to acquire.

We have assisted other accountants, lawyers and financial advisors in preparing independent valuations and due diligence reviews of businesses for their clients.

Valuations are essential in determining the fair value of your business which you have built over years, no matter what exit strategy from the business is chosen.

Business valuations consider the economic conditions in which the business operates, financial analysis, normalisation of financial statements, and the use of income and asset-based approaches and related techniques.
