We can provide an independent business valuation process for advisory practices, whether you are the owner or the licensee with a buy-back arrangement.
What will you receive?
You will receive a comprehensive, confidential Business Valuation Report as well as a detailed in-person briefing. The report will incorporate a value range, based on different calculation bases, supported by the latest market trends.
We look at a number of different factors to determine the market value range of a business. In addition to a comprehensive analysis of the financials, we benchmark the practice using our business ‘health’ rating system, HealthCheck. We gather feedback from the business’s clients through our CATScan client survey and feedback from the staff through our Confidential staff survey. The feedback process generally takes six to eight weeks. Wherever possible, we undertake a face-to-face visit to the practice.
Finally, we consider the ‘fit’ of the buyer and seller.
Why go the effort?
Traditionally, value determination has effectively been driven by two factors – the bottom line financials and the negotiating skills of the buyer and seller. We believe there is much more involved if a fair and equitable value is to be derived by both parties (buyer and seller). By taking a professional approach to the final evaluation, you gain a fair and independent assessment, and increase the chances of a smooth transition from seller to buyer.
