Description

Written by Des Peelo, one of Ireland’s leading valuation experts, The Valuation of Buisnesses and Shares: A Practitioner's Guide  is a practical handbook setting out guidelines, case histories, examples of valuations and best practice for the busy practitioner in advising on valuations that may arise in many different circumstances. This new edition is updated and expanded to be of maximum benefit to the busy practitioner.

 

Valuation permeates all aspects of business life. It is the measure of capital value on stock markets around the world, the mainspring of wealth and its creation, and the store of value for the economic well-being of a country.


This is a highly practical handbook from one of Ireland’s leading valuation experts, setting out guidelines, case histories, examples of valuations and best practice for the busy practitioner in advising on valuations that may arise in many different circumstances. Integrity, meaning objectivity, independence and impartiality, is the hallmark of the professional valuer. This book explains these obligations and what they mean in everyday valuation practice.


Updated for changes in relevant guidance and law, this 2nd edition includes a whole new chapter on selling and buying a business, as well as extensive developments of the chapters on the valuation of a professional practice and the importance of shareholders and partnership agreements, with a specimen partnership agreement provided in an appendix. Importantly, the author has adapted the advice he offers according to relatively recent changes in the market place, to why businesses are formed and therefore how they are valued.
