Business Valuations

Business valuation accountants in London

You could be looking to buy a business, sell a business you own, or looking to raise capital. All three of these situations require you to get a business valuation done.

A business valuation sets out to look at how much your business is worth and your financial performance. It looks at if your business is profitable or if it is making a loss but growing. The valuation also looks at the structure of your business and whether it has an established market presence and if it has matured. They review the debt position of the business and its ability to honour its liabilities. 

Valuations can differ if a business is a sole proprietorship, a partnership, or a company, and a useful business valuation only exists as a result of careful evaluation. A business valuation analyst uses various accounting tools to conduct a review, including gearing ratios and interest covers. Other considerations the analyst must take in to account include tax liabilities, eligibility for government schemes, and the health and trend of the market that the business operates in.

Praxis has a portfolio of services that extends well beyond business valuations. This makes our ability to assess the value of your business focused and dependable.

Getting a business valuation for stock option incentives

Many companies nowadays offer stock-based compensations to their employees and management. The stock is given in reward of service or achievements. Stock option schemes are excellent ways to hire top talent and retain existing employees. To be able to offer a competitive stock option you would want an accurate business valuation. 

Stock options incentive schemes have been growing in popularity for quite some time. They are an excellent method of putting your business out there to attract the very best talent. It is a highly dependable strategy to ensure that your most qualified employees stay.

Stock options and awards are a part of your company that you are giving away as compensation. It is no easy task and one that requires extensive analysis – you don’t want to give too much or too little of your company away.

We can help  you design a purposeful incentive scheme that opens the door for new talent and makes in-house talent want to stay.
