Purchase Price Allocation and valuation advice
We advise on Purchase Price Allocation for the real estate sector as well as impairment testing. We also provide tax valuations for CGT calculation, Capital Allowances, Transfer Pricing, and SDLT.
Examples of recent work in the area include the valuation of 2,500 freehold and leasehold retail unit in UK and Ireland for a Purchase Price Allocation on one of the UK’s largest retailers, and valuations for stamp duty for one of UK’s leading residential developers.
We provide valuations to support audits. This includes reviewing third party valuations and Director’s valuations. We review the methodology and key assumptions as well as commenting on suitability for inclusion in accounts.
Supporting Due Diligence
We advise on buy side due diligence for real estate. We help identify latent value in occupational portfolios such as lease re-gearing, disposal of surplus assets, development or refurbishment.
We work as part of buy-side project teams providing due diligence on retailers, restaurants, health clubs, hotels, leisure operators and manufacturers with substantial portfolios.
We also work with occupiers and private equity investors on effective “100 day plans”.
