Purpose of the Valuation

The main objective of the Business Valuer application is to provide the User with a guide price of the commercial value (‘fair value’) of a business as a starting point for negotiations. A commercial value of any asset seeks to arrive at a fair value for both the purchaser and the seller.

However, it is very important to remember that at the end of the day any asset is only worth what somebody is willing to pay for it and as a result it is a matter of negotiation between a willing buyer and a willing seller that ultimately determines the market value.

Please note that the valuation produced by the Business Valuer software cannot be relied upon for taxation purposes unless further work is carried out to agree the value of the business with HMRC Share Valuation Division.
