Engage the professional.
Sound professional advice is recommended for all aspects of the purchase or sale of a business and this applies particularly to the valuation of the STOCK IN TRADE. There is also the consideration of the WORK IN PROGRESS or OUTSTANDING ACCOUNTS.
Disputes over the valuation of stock can be costly and may delay completion of the transfer.
A Trade Valuer has the specialist knowledge to value stock-in-trade and other assets accurately and fairly in the context of a business transfer and our reputation in this field is exceptional.
Unfortunately, in some cases we are only called in where a serious dispute has resulted between seller and buyer and whilst we are usually willing and able to resolve the problems it is undoubtedly more satisfactory if we are instructed at an early stage.
Indeed, we are pleased to offer specialist advice to members of the public contemplating purchase of a business before decision is made.
