Business valuations

Our team are highly capable in the preparation and delivery of business valuation reports for business valuation assessments, evidence for family law and commercial litigation.

Forensic accounting

For complex fraud or embezzlement matters, our forensic accounting experts are able to investigate and analyse financial information and get to the bottom of the matter. These findings can then be used in legal proceedings if necessary.

Purchasing or selling a business

When purchasing or selling a business, a valuation of the business will be necessary to identify market value and satisfy potential buyers’ interest. Our valuation team works in partnership with you to compile and provide an accurate report for buying or selling purposes. This process provides a vital verification of trust in the transaction and helps to plan for a smooth future.

Family law valuations

When the unthinkable happens in your relationship, there can be wider business implications as part of the separation. Often a valuation of the business and associated entities will be required as part of the divorce settlement. Once a valuation has been completed, it can then be provided to the family lawyers in question so they may ensure both parties have full disclosure of the financial situation and possible outcomes.

Commercial litigation

When shareholder disputes arise from commercial ventures, a business valuation is required to ensure legal proceedings have sufficient evidence to act on behalf of all parties involved. Our team regularly provide high level litigation support to legal teams and shareholders in these instances.

Mergers and acquisitions

In order to satisfy the interests of all parties involved in a merger or acquisition, we are often required to provide a valuation of the business/es in question. In particular, the restructure of a business will require a tax based valuation to ensure all future implications of the new venture are accounted for. We specialise in business structuring and tax valuations for these purposes and can assist you through the process.

Expert witness appearances

The integrity of our valuation and litigation team can be trusted to appear in court as expert witnesses. We are regularly relied upon to act as expert witnesses in legal proceedings and our extensive experience in this area has led us to become a preferred resource in this area.

Due diligence

Before entering into a large transaction or business decision, you may engage us to undertake a due diligence process to ensure your business goals align with your prospects. Due diligence includes a risk and viability assessment of the venture in question including legal, insurance and other compliance considerations. It can also be a contractual obligation. Ultimately, by engaging us to undertake your due diligence process, you can trust that you are armed with all information necessary to make an informed decision about your future.
