By the time you realise a valuation is incorrect, it is probably too late. For most transactions, disputes or planning, there will only be one opportunity to present all of the facts appropriately in order to secure the optimum result. Achieving this involves a delicate interplay of business acumen, legal expertise, technical knowledge and commercial pragmatism.
BDO’s Valuations team specialises in independent business valuations which may be required for a variety of purposes. Our work includes reports needed to comply with accounting or regulatory standards and for tax, litigation, family or commercial purposes.
A valuation is often needed at a difficult or stressful time – whether a shareholder dispute, a potential sale, the breakdown of a relationship or simply the year-end audit process. We aim to deliver exceptional client service and meet our clients’ valuations needs in a timely and cost-effective way. Our combined experience means that there are very few situations which we have not encountered before. In addition, as there are many circumstances where existing advisors may not be able to assist due to an actual or perceived conflict, our team is expert in liaising with existing professional advisers in order to deliver an appropriate, fit for purpose report with a minimum of fuss.
Our Valuations team is one of the largest in the UK, and includes experts who are published authors in the field. Our client base comprises FTSE 100 companies, governments, lawyers and regulators as well as individuals and entrepreneurial businesses, and covers a wide range of sectors including Pharmaceutical, Financial Services, Natural Resources, Power & Utilities (including Water, Oil & Gas and Renewables), Retail, Real Estate, Manufacturing, Technology, Media and Telecommunications.
