A business valuation (business valuation advice) is essential on the occasion of one of the most important events for entrepreneurs: the transfer of their company. The key point in this context is the value of your business. Do you ever wonder: ‘What is my business worth?’ and ‘How is the value of a business determined?’ PKF Financial Advisory helps entrepreneurs answer these questions, and goes beyond that by actively discussing how your company’s value can be enhanced.
Business valuation advice can be provided when the company is sold. However, it is preferable to carry out the business valuation a few years earlier, so that you know well in advance which factors are capable of improvement so as to increase your company’s value.
We can also support you as a specialist in relation to business succession, employee participation, commercial advice, acquisitions or divorce. If you want to know more about the costs of business valuation and the valuation of your business, PKF Financial Advisory will be happy to help, also as a certified valuator.

These will help you take well-considered steps to enhance the value of your company. If want us to provide a more in-depth analysis, we will be happy to do so.
An increasing number of companies offer an employee participation plan. Employee participation often revolves around the most (tax) efficient way in which employees can participate. Another essential point is often overlooked: does the potential participant effectively add value to the organisation, and can the employee help the organisation along? In other words, will it add to the value of the business?
The PKF Financial Advisory team provides tailor-made advice on employee participation plans, concerning the valuation issues as well as the funding of the participation. The team looks beyond the tax issues and also examines whether the employee participation plan would entail an unintended benefit for the employee from the employer.

PKF Financial Advisory has developed a sector beta report. This report provides insight into betas, volatility, company values and debt equity ratios for 61 different sectors. In total, 1816 listed European companies were analysed and included in the dataset of the report. In order to keep the sector beta report up to date, a new edition will be published every six months.
The report is interesting for valuation professionals, portfolio managers and CFOs. Furthermore, the report is interesting for financial specialists who focus on valuing or investing in (non-listed) SMEs. Entrepreneurs can also use the report when making investment or expansion analyses.
Proper management reports clearly present the key variables that determine the company’s value, which means that you can expressly address these variables with the aim to enhance your company’s value (management forecasts being a case in point). Our specialists devote particular attention to developing business-specific key financials so as to customise the management report.

Based on monthly management reports, management forecasts and the budget, a forecast is prepared of the expected cash flows during a particular period, usually the next 12 months. This forecast can be used for the purpose of obtaining credit, or providing credit to (potential) buyers.
