Business valuation is a process and a set of procedures used to estimate the economic value of an owner’s interest in a business. Business Valuation is used by financial market participants to determine the price they are willing to pay or receive to effect the sale of a business.
Business Valuation can also be defined as the general process of determining the economic value of a whole business or company unit. Business valuation can be used to determine the fair value of a business for a variety of reasons, including sales value, establishing partner ownership, taxation, and even divorce proceedings.

Financial Report Valuation
The increase in the use of fair value measurement for financial reporting purposes means that the valuations and the quality of valuations have moved up the agendas of standard setters, regulators and accounting professionals. At Biz Summit, we specialize in providing independent valuations for financial reporting purposes.
Below are just some of the areas we advise on.
Purchase Price Allocation
Purchase price allocation is an important step in the process of merger and acquisition. This usually occurs when either a publicly or privately held company acquires or merges with another company; the purchase price paid for the target needs to be allocated among all the assets of the target. Basically, purchase price allocation is performed when there has been a change in control of a company such as when an existing shareholder purchases an additional equity interest which then gives them a controlling interest in the company.
Share-based payment is a transaction that occurs when an entity receives goods or services either as consideration for its equity instruments or by incurring liabilities for amounts based on the price of the entity’s shares or other equity instruments of the entity.
Impairment describes a permanent reduction in the value of a company’s asset, such as a fixed asset or intangible, to below its carrying value.
