We can assist clients in the following areas:

We are well placed to offer all three types of valuation services:

  • Asset or business valuations for the purpose of sale or restructuring.
  • Asset / liability valuations for financial reporting purposes (e.g. impairment of intangibles, purchase price allocation, share option scheme liabilities).
  • Tax valuation services be it for transfer pricing or capital gains tax purposes.

Whether you are selling part or all of your business, looking to expand through acquisition or simply in search of additional capital we are keen to listen to your needs and advise you objectively on the do’s and don’ts. We will stay the course from strategy to negotiation and closure of the transaction, aiming for the best possible outcome. We achieve this by bringing together experts from different disciplines as necessary, who work patiently and diligently with only one goal in mind – your best interest.
