Business Valuations

Business valuations are our specialty. An experienced valuer will increase your understanding of the valuation process and all it entails, but you will also gain expert knowledge on the value of a business and advice on how to maximise your valuation with the correct preparation.

Alan McGillivray of BV Specialists can provide expert advice (accepted by the Australian Law Courts), on a wide range of company valuations.

You may be considering valuing your business for a particular purpose. We have experience in providing business valuation reports for:

  • Preparing a business for sale
  • Preparing for business merger
  • Business partnership breakdown
  • Financing expansion and growth to take advantage of market opportunity
  • Financing business diversification
  • Change in ownership ratios
  • Acquiring a new business
  • Family Law
  • Risk minimisation including insurance purposes
  • Restructure and associated stamp duty consequences

A number of approaches may be used leading to a proper business valuation. These will include securing an intimate understanding of your assets, the market in which your business operates and the revenue your business generates.

While a review of the financial health of your business is a priority, often the current “state” of your business can affect the valuation. Factors influencing the value of a business can include the quality of the policies, systems and procedures you currently have in place to streamline your operation. An experienced valuer (with experience in business coaching and training) can assist you in preparing your business for the maximum valuation outcome.

When you combine our independent valuation and business advisory services with speciality services in tax and accounting you will embark upon an approach that can increase your business returns and personal wealth.

Business valuations require a basic methodology, however individual judgement and assessment are also key elements. The five basic valuation methodologies we use include:

  • Discounted cash flow
  • Capitalisation of future maintainable earnings
  • Notional realisation of assets
  • Net tangible assets (on a going concern basis)
  • Capitalisation of future maintainable dividends
