Business Valuation Report

Our Business Valuation Report is a full report or detailed letter with an independent opinion of your business valuation, and assets. It is prepared by our team of expert business consultants, with many years of experience in the M&A market. 

Our reports are bespoke to meet your requirements, which can be used in court proceedings as expert witness evidence if necessary.


Option 1: Business Valuation Report

This is an individually prepared report of our opinion, which typically involves around 30-35 hours work to compile. This report goes into detail as to how we arrived at the valuation figure. This report can also be Expert Witness compliant, should you need it for court. If you do, simply let us know.

Subject to receiving the relevant information swiftly, the report takes 3-4 weeks to prepare. We can offer an express service, however there may be additional costs.


Option 2: Business Valuation Opinion Letter 

Alternative to a full opinion report, we can provide an overview opinion on letterhead. This will provide a considered, independent opinion of value. This can be provided in as little as 7-10 working days, subject to us receiving the relevant information timely.
