We are always happy to provide business sellers with a preliminary, verbal valuation for no charge.
If a formal business valuation is required we charge on a day-rate basis and at present this is £750 + VAT.
For small uncomplicated businesses, we allow about 1.5 days for a desktop valuation. For larger more complicated businesses we will do our best to provide an estimate of the time required to carry out the work. Where the valuation is being carried out to resolve a dispute which is not going to litigation, we are happy to try to work with both sides to ensure they have appropriate input to the process and to explain the thinking behind the valuation we produce.
We are always amenable to discussing alternative fee structures.
