Calculating the value of something is rarely straightforward. After all, there are typically a wide range of factors that need to be taken into consideration before a price tag can be decided.
Often, without due care being taken in the valuation process, arbitrary numbers can be thrown out, which renders the valuation useless. No more so is this case then when it comes to business valuations.
Business valuations form a vital part of many negotiations, including when someone wants to: sell or buy a business; sell their shares in a business; get a divorce and needs to know the total wealth of the other person, including their stakes in a business; or when a negligence case is brought against a business.
However, while there is a variety of reasons why someone might need a business valuation, the actual process itself can be troublesome, which is why so many people call upon forensic accounting experts such as Frenkels Forensics to assist in this process.
Using their technical, forensic and analytical skills, the team at Frenkels’ Forensics are able to produce valuations of the businesses concerned – this includes dealing with businesses of varying sizes and complexity including partnerships, limited companies, small family businesses and large companies with operations both here and overseas.
The experts are able to arrive at an accurate value for a business by taking a comprehensive view of all the company in question – including its stock, assets, IP, staff, customer base, order book and, of course, turnover.
Applying analytical methods to the process of valuing a business helps to cut out rough estimates or over-exaggerated figures. This in turn makes it far easier for negotiations – whatever they might concern – to progress smoothly, rather than stalling as the two sides debate what the business in question is actually worth.
