The advisory part of the work done by auditors and accountants is increasing in importance as they seek to expand their service offering.


The advisory part of the work done by auditors and accountants is increasing in importance as they seek to expand their service offering.  

One such service is business evaluation. This service is required for various reasons - the most common one being when a business is sold, and both seller and buyer want to know the "true" value of the business before putting pen to paper. Internal re-organisation, going concern assessments, estate planning, divorce and requests from investors are other drivers of business valuation. Taking it up and adding it to the advisory portfolio will ensure an additional steady stream of income. 

But what are the principles of the business valuation process? Join Nestene Botha CA(SA) on 30 November 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. as she discusses the technical principles to assist in better advising clients who require this service.
