The aim of a business contract is to try to provide certainty for both parties.
A large proportion of the work our forensic accounting team undertake is quantifying losses in business disputes; acting equally for both claimants and defendants, as well as a Single Joint Expert
One80’s forensic accounting team is regularly instructed by directors and their professional advisers to undertake valuations of businesses and shareholdings within them. Our team performs these assignments throughout the UK and overseas.
Our valuations range in size from hundreds of thousands of pounds to hundreds of millions of pounds. In every case, we are acutely aware of the importance of explaining how we have reached our conclusions. We provide sufficient detail and clarity so that the end user can be confident in the robustness of our opinions.
Typical valuation assignments which our team are asked to assist with include:
- Post M&A transaction disputes
- Shareholder or partnership disputes
- Matrimonial disputes
- Using Business Valuations to quantify damages in commercial cases, typically comparing the value of a business in the actual circumstances to the value in a counterfactual scenario
- Non-contentious valuations (for example for tax purposes)
Our team are experts in valuation methodologies and their use in legal proceedings. We understand the various bases of value and how important it is to ensure the appropriate basis are being applied to each individual situation. Our work is always compliant with International Valuation Standards 2017.
