In many cases, the value of matrimonial assets can be derived at fairly straightforwardly, identifying the value of the house, car, bank balance, quoted shares. However, when a business and shareholdings in private companies are involved, things can become complicated, even when parties remain amicable. Haines Watts Forensic team has a wealth of experience in preparing valuation reports ranging from owner-managed business to large corporate groups for matrimonial cases. How much is your business worth, is not a speculative question, or one that should be answered with a “rough estimate”. Once instructed we will gather information to allow us to gain a thorough understanding of the business or businesses involved. We will then explore the various methods of valuation to identify the most suitable for each individual scenario. Especially in sensitive cases such as matrimonial proceedings, attaching an accurate valuation to a company is critical. That is why we take the utmost care to ensure our reports are impartial, clear, and as non-contentious as possible, whilst remaining fully court compliant. Furthermore, we have expert witness experience should proceedings reach that stage.
