Documented, Defensible, & Fair Market Business Valuations

Before you purchase or sell a business in Victoria, BC, you need to know how much it is worth. This is why Bell & Company’s team of professional accountants, bookkeepers, and advisors are experienced with aspects such as negotiating a merger, preparing corporate taxes, considering new shareholders, resolving liability disputes, and dealing with shareholder equity and estate planning, among other things.

Buying or selling a business can be an emotionally charged process, but business valuation should be based on judgment, experience, and information, which is why you need an objective accounting team with significant experience in evaluating all types of organizations – from multi-million dollar corporations to small, family-owned businesses. Failure to consider and research all aspects of a deal can result in the acquisition of a business that is worth less than the purchase price or the vending of a business that is sold for less than it is worth.

We approach the purchase or sale of each business with the intention of getting to know the business as intimately as possible so that we fully understand what constitutes its fair market value. Working side-by-side with our clients, we complete a due diligence investigation, examining business operations and historical financial data to provide an accurate, documented, and defensible valuation opinion.
