Business valuations

Business or share valuation in a private company is an imprecise science as the value depends largely on its future prospects, which cannot be calculated with certainty and will fluctuate over time.

The valuation of a business, whether in divorce proceedings or as part of other litigation, requires extensive working knowledge of the commercial aspects of a business together with the associated tax and financing issues. We have considerable expertise in business valuations including:

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Matrimonial disputes
  • Minority claims
  • Acquisition targets
  • Capital gains tax or inheritance tax valuations involving agreement of the valuation with HM Revenue & Customs Shares Valuation Division
