Practical Share Valuation provides a reference point for practitioners, who may need to prepare or review a valuation of shares or intangible assets, and acts as a practical guide to the more straightforward valuations which are required for tax purposes. In many circumstances - including divorce, dispute or leaving a company - there is only one opportunity to present a valuation for agreement and the ultimate cost of an ill-prepared or inexpert valuation can be significant.
While there is no substitute for an expert valuer, Practical Share Valuation combines decades of the authors' practical experience in order to provide a reference guide to the valuation of unquoted shares and intangible assets as well as a practical handbook for practitioners preparing more routine valuations for tax purposes.
The book highlights the relevant case law relating to valuations and also provides a handy list of additional data sources to aid the valuer in gaining access to the comparator data and latest valuation standards available. Whether you need to prepare a valuation or review work prepared by another practitioner, Practical Share Valuation provides a wealth of easily accessible information, hints and tips to help you navigate through the potential minefield of share valuations. Since the last edition published in 2014, there have been significant changes to tax avoidance legislation and several long-awaited litigation battles regarding tax avoidance issues have been heard.
In addition, the new UK GAAP regime has come into effect.
