Share and Business Valuations

Take the guesswork out of your deals

Valuations may be about numbers, but number crunching is just part of the equation. The real challenge is bringing together business, legal and technical knowledge to arrive at a valuation that all parties agree is fair.

Whatever you need an independent valuation for—new accounting standards, litigation, commercial or tax purposes—our team of experts can help.

BDO’s Valuations team will give you a robust valuation no matter how complex the case or information involved.

Our team includes published authors in the field and we specialise in share valuation in unquoted companies, intellectual property, unincorporated businesses, associated liabilities and intangible assets.
