Business Valuations

Independent Valuations - USA & Australia

InteleK offers two tiers of business valuations to both the USA and Australian Markets:
1) Detailed Appraisals/Valuations: Legally defendable and compliant to "regulating valuation agency" standards.

2) Summary Appraisals/Valuations: Quicker and ideal for purposes that don't need to be industry standard compliant.

InteleK offers valuations to clients of:
  • Attorneys/Solicitors: Defendable in court.
  • Accountants: Individuals to mid-tier firms and regional offices of larger firms, from internal planning to IRS (USA) and ATO (Aus) compliant.
  • Lending Institutions: SBA 7(a) Loans adhering to standard operating procedure 50 1-5(k).
  • End Business Owners: Do you already know your valuation purpose? Are you wanting to conduct internal/strategic planning? Or you need your annual 'business health check' valuation? For more information on tax or litigation purposes, please consult your attorney and or accountant to identify the right valuation purpose. Once you know the specific purpose, we perform the valuation.

2. Calculations of Value: Valuation reports compliant with AICPA or relevant standards. Shorter summary valuations are also available. These reports can incorporate the Client's desired approaches and techniques.

1. Valuation Reports: Compliant with the regulating standards APES 225 & IVS.
2. Summary Appraisals: Non-compliant, significantly shorter however ideal when you just want to know "how much is my business worth", still knowing a quality process and valuation has taken place.

Valuation Approaches and Techniques

We consider the following market standard Approaches:
Income Approach: We consider the expected future cash flows of the business and then apply a "risk measure" to account for the expected risk of those cash flows.
Market Approach: Based on the transactions of other private businesses similar to the subject business. For larger businesses, comparing them to similar businesses that trade on a listed/public exchange; and
Asset Approach: We value your business based on the sum of the expected current fair market value of each of the assets and liabilities.

Detailed valuation reports written to "regulating valuation agency" standards ALWAYS consider all three approaches. While summary appraisal reports may consider only one or two approaches.
