The valuation of a business or company is a complex undertaking, however, it is often required to assist business owners and company shareholders with planning for the future, resolving disputes and meeting requirements set by the Australian Taxation Office.
The Difference Between a Business, Company and Shareholding Valuations
Although the words ‘business’ and ‘company’ are often used interchangeably, there is actually a distinct difference between a business and a company when it comes to valuations. The value of a company is not necessarily the same as the value of the business carried on by that company. Further, the valuation of a parcel of shares in a company is normally different again. For clarity, we have developed a Fact Sheet for our clients discussing the Difference Between a Business, Company and Shareholding Valuations.
Comprehensive Reference Guide: Business
To assist our clients, we have developed a Comprehensive Reference Guide to Business Valuations. This guide outlines in detail what a valuer should consider when valuing a business, who can value a business, industry-specific considerations that values should consider and valuation methodologies that can be applied when valuing a business.
