You cannot advise on a business' value now without considering the impact of COVID-19

When advising on the value of any SME business, the impact of COVID 19 must now be taken into account. Beyond the immediate effect of the pandemic, there are longer term repercussions that need to be considered and covered to protect the integrity of your valuation report.

Supported by case-study examples, the Business Valuations Post COVID-19 Webinar walks you through the issues, identifies the relevant considerations, then provides you with the practical approaches to your engagement, work program, valuation conclusion, and report. The suggested documentation, procedures and report wording is also included.

This is a must attend webinar for any accountant advising clients on the sale or purchase of a business, the introduction of new equity holders, resolution of shareholder or family law disputes, or succession planning.
