Chartered Business Valuations

Valuate Accurately & Confidentially

Beacon Brokerage offers our clients comprehensive Broker Opinion of Value and chartered business valuations to assess the current value of their company. Business valuations are recommended when selling or buying a business, and also help establish a price for the company when a disagreement with a partner needs to be settled, a bank loan is applied for, an estate freeze is needed, or to defend the business value in a legal dispute.

Business valuations can serve many purposes for business owners, and as a result the complexity of the valuation reflects the intended purpose of the report. Valuations can be used to negotiate a purchase and sale, secure credit, settle a legal dispute, for taxation purposes, or for management’s internal use. Whether it be analyzing Notice to Reader, Review Engagement or Audited financial statements and coming up with a Broker’s Opinion of Value or CBV Calculation Report, Beacon is able to provide this range of valuation services to our clients.

Beacon provides independent and advisory valuation services in accordance with International Valuation Standards. Our valuation professionals that author our Calculation Reports are members of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators (CICBV).

In the end, the market will tell us what your company is worth, but the process starts with a valuation that tells you, among other things, what companies like yours have recently sold for and what we believe is a fair market value given current market conditions.

We invite you to contact us to explore your options confidentially with a Beacon valuation professional.
