Business Valuation Company

R A Valuation Services is the most successful independent business valuation company in the UK.

Business valuation is impacted by a multitude of factors such as the company’s industry, its specific stage of development and, if applicable, the sources of any invested capital.

Understanding Value Creation

Business valuation requires a solid grasp of both how value has been created prior to the valuation date, and how it will continue to be created on an ongoing basis. The process of value creation does not follow a single path, but rather many paths that vary by sector and the company’s life cycle position. Understanding this process is fundamental and achieved through our extensive valuation experience whether we are performing a valuation for a share scheme, tax purposes, buy-in or buy-out, divestment, acquisition, strategic planning, business restructuring, or for dispute and litigation purposes.

Measuring Value

Business valuation is often described as both an art and a science. The scientific and analytical aspect employs a variety of methods applied not only to the business itself, but also to the measures and inputs into the valuation computations. Commonly used valuation methods include the cost, market or income (Discounted Cash Flow) approaches. The art of a valuation lies in the ability to apply these tools in an appropriate manner, using experience and professional judgment. This type of insight is gained over years of experience across the wide range of industries in addition to truly understanding the circumstances behind the valuation.
