Value an Optometric Practice

R A Valuation Services Limited is the only accredited valuer of Opticians' Practices in the UK.

There are a number of ways of valuing an ophthalmic – opticians or optometrists - practice depending on individual circumstances and the ongoing income stream which may arise from the business.

Practices are usually valued on an 'earnings' basis, though can also be valued using an 'assets' approach. With an earnings valuation, the assessment is completed on the basis of profits that the business can generate or is expected to generate on an ongoing and recurring basis.

If an assets sale is to take place then up-to-date valuations are relevant for property and other assets together with current liabilities of the company and the recoverability of its debtors.

R A Valuation Services provides a sensibly and competitively priced practice valuation report for optometrists, opticians and optometric practices in the UK and Europe for the purpose of business sale and purchase, partnership or shareholder change, litigation, matrimonial and legal separation, incorporation, tax settlements, borrowings and business development.

An accurate and independent assessment of the value of a business is an essential tool in any form of business change or development. Our Practice Valuation Reports are an important, if not vital, aid to business owners, prospective purchasers and their financial and legal advisers.

R A Valuation Services is an independent and impartial optometric practice valuation specialist. Our practice valuation reports are recognised in the industry as the only authoritative valuation. We like to ensure that an appropriately experienced and senior valuer carries out the appraisal. All valuation work - and communication during the instruction process - is undertaken personally by a suitably experienced director of R A Valuation Services.

We are happy to explain the process and what you would need to provide, so why not phone the office on 01425 402 402.
