Company evaluations

There is no need to be constantly wondering what a business is worth, since this often transcends purely economic value. Nevertheless, there are occasions in the life of a company when it is very important to know exactly what the business is worth.

If a business is about to be sold or purchased, then the seller and the buyer will both want to know how much it is worth. The value of the company has major implications for gift tax in cases of business succession. A company valuation is often required to reach a satisfactory settlement if there are any differences of opinion at shareholder level. The situation is similar if there are any claims for compensation under family law.

It is a challenging task to calculate the correct value of a business, as this is largely determined by future earnings according to generally recognised standards. A company evaluation thus incorporates many financial projections.
