FINH's business valuation services may be needed when:
- A business-owner is considering a merger, sale or acquisition
- A shareholder wishes to buy-out other shareholders
- The business needs a method to determine capital gains
- There is a Shareholder dispute
- There is a family law dispute
- There are breach of contract disputes
Business valuations are also an important part of facilitating family succession and generational transfer of business wealth which is an area FINH specialises in. We educate our clients to know the correct method of valuing their business and our business-valuation.co website offers more valuable information on this subject.
Also in terms of setting strategic intent, a high level valuation can help identify what's needed to increase the value of the business or attract new capital.
David Harland, FINH’s Managing Director, is the Chairman of CPA Australia’s National Forum on Valuation of Equity. Dr Jon Stanford is FINH’s Chief Economist and together they have experience in valuing business in a number of industries and particularly businesses experiencing rapid growth, businesses with intellectual property assets, start-up businesses and businesses in new industries. David and Jon Stanford frequently present on Business Valuations. Jon also maintains a regular blog on business valuation, where he uses his extensive economics and business valuations experience to provides an engaging insight into recent business trends.
This combination of Accounting and Economic background ensures that FINH is well placed to provide a sound business valuation model as we possess detailed expertise in accounting valuations (derived from an understanding of the business) and also has expertise in economics in being able to provide a rational and coherent basis for projecting future cash flows.
