There are crucial points in the life cycle of a business when a valuation is essential.

Business Valuation

Business valuations are needed when:

  • Applying for finance or raising equity
  • Resolving shareholder disputes
  • Seeking compensation for fraud
  • Restructuring shares and arranging pay-outs upon the resignation, retirement, or death of a shareholder
  • As part of a divorce settlement
  • For Capital Gains Tax purposes
  • Negotiating the sale of the business
Providing a business valuation is complex. It requires a forensic attention to detail and a sound understanding of all aspects of the business, its potential, its client base, its growth trajectory and its tangible and intangible assets.

What’s more, it isn’t an exact science. Anyone instructing a team to value their business should have confidence not only in their ability to provide a sound valuation, but also in their capacity to negotiate with those who may disagree and to respond appropriately to any challenges to the valuation.

At Champion Accountants, we support our clients through every aspect of their finances. Our advisors provide business support from start-up, through mergers and acquisitions, management buy-ins and buy-outs, through to the sale of a business. We are skilled at providing business valuations in all circumstances, backed up by advice and support relevant to the circumstances of the valuation.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Quadra all these years. We have delivered their annual accounts and assistance with tax planning since 2014. The company has built a hugely successful business during this time, and I am glad that we have been able to help and advise them with the various projects throughout.

“Quadra’s management team was approached by Woodgate & Clarke before the COVID-19 pandemic began but the deal progressed through to completion in the New Year [2021].

“It is always great to work with a company to help them achieve such an important ambition and I am grateful that our client trusted us to help them over the line. Quadra has now formed part of a bigger business with natural synergies; it’s an exciting platform from which to grow and evolve.

“We wish both Quadra and Woodgate & Clarke a prosperous, harmonious future as they embark on this new venture together.”
