Valuations and Its Need


Valuation is the process of determining the fair market value of an asset. Valuations can be done on assets (for example, investments in marketable securities such as stocks, options, business enterprises, or intangible assets such as patents and trademarks) or on liabilities (e.g., bonds issued by a company).


Valuations are needed for many reasons such as investment analysis, capital budgeting, merger and acquisition transactions, financial reporting, taxable events to determine the proper tax liability, and in litigation.

Valuations are required when a definitive value is needed. Reasons for this include a property settlement, obtaining finance from a lending institution or establishing the value of a deceased estate. A Court may also order that a valuation be obtained as part of the process of resolving a dispute.

Appraisals and Valuations

A formal valuation can only be conducted by a qualified valuer (real estate valuation firm) who has undertaken prescribed education and training in this field to ensure that they take into account all features and issues relating to a particular property. Valuing is a complex task and will take some time to complete. A formal valuation will take into account things such as

  • The location of the property
  • Connectivity and accessibility
  • Infrastructural development
  • Occupancy level
  • Features of the tangible assets
  • Caveats or encumbrances on the property
  • Local Council zoning
  • Profile of surrounding developments
