(Incorporating Litigation Support and Specialist Business Services)There are a number of events in a business lifecycle that may require a formal valuation.
Typically these events are when a business is being acquired or disposed of. However there are many other occasions where a formal business valuation may be required to:
|Obtain Finance;||Succession planning;|
|Settle a dispute;||Income and Capital gains Tax issues; and|
|Admit or remove a partner or shareholder;||Matrimonial breakdown.|
Forensic accounting is commonly the service provided when there is a claim for compensation or loss of profit or a fraudulent event and there is often a need for an expert witness to support claims and counter claims.
