Valuation of companies and assets

 Valuation of the company, businesses and assets usually takes place in connection with the process of sale, transformation, as well as tax optimization. This process requires an individual approach depending on the type of business the company is engaged in. The purpose of such a valuation is also a key issue. These may be the situations already mentioned above related to the sale of a company or its transformation. The company valuation process may also be necessary for reasons such as:

  • liquidation of the company,
  • court cases,
  • purchase of a company.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the valuation of the company, it is worth entrusting this task to professionals, thanks to whom the entirety of these procedures will proceed in a professional manner and with full support at every stage.

Importance of company valuation

Why is it so important to estimate the value of the company? Because this process benefits not only the company, but also, for example: investors, counterparties or state authorities (such as the Central Statistical Office or the Tax Office). The economy is very complex and there are a number of changes occurring in it at a rapid pace, so recognizing them and adapting the company to the ongoing changes is a key issue for the operation of the company. Valuation is therefore both economically and strategically important – a company with knowledge of its own value and individual capitals is more reliable. Taking into account factors of various types (including social, economic and demographic), by undergoing an equity valuation process, a company can also estimate its ability to generate profits.
