Exploring the Diverse Motivations for Company Valuations

Published 15th August 2023

Company Valuations -  When the need arises

There are several reasons why a company’s management might seek a company valuation. At Pierce Forensic we have extensive experience of valuing companies and shareholdings within litigation, including shareholder disputes, claims for unfair prejudice, and divorce proceedings. However, company valuations may also be sought in non-contentious circumstances, including tax planning and management of the business.

Our reports can be tailored to the specific requirements from desktop / shortform valuation reports to a detailed analysis of a company’s position and current value.

Typically non-contentious valuation reports fall into the following categories:  

Tax planning/reorganisations

Staff incentivisation

Wealth management


We are finding that company owners are increasingly willing to see the benefits of incentivising management by offering share incentives such as EMI Share Options or Growth Shares.  We can combine forward-looking tax advice from our specialist tax team at Pierce with our experienced valuation experts.   

At Pierce, we have considerable experience valuing companies in contentious and non-contentious situations. We aim to provide cost-effective advice to assist business owners reach their objectives.
