Increase the value of your practice with value added services
Written by Robin Kemper

Every business when it starts up, believes over time it will grow value for its owners. Unfortunately this is not the case, and can only happen if the business has a sound value platform, and value drivers working for it. Every financial and corporate transaction involves valuations – whether it is a merger or acquisition, retirement or introduction of a new partner, estate matters and divorce matters. Business valuations are also required as part of a due diligence for financing and the approval of loans and turnaround strategies. It is the ultimate bottom line scorecard to measure business performance and good corporate governance.

However, the challenges are how to effectively measure value and what valuation method to use and what are realistic achievable forecast earnings and assumptions to use. Unlike property valuations, whether commercial or residential, with the benchmark of comparable transactions, each business (both public and private) is unique with no realistic benchmark. In fact, a valuation is a surrogate transaction based on a hypothetical transaction between a notional buyer and notional seller. Consequently it has resulted in serious confusion, conflicts and even suicide because of inaccurate valuations!

After 3 years of research, led by Dr John W Hendrikse (B.Com, MBA (Cum Laude) CFA,  Ph.D, a practical tool has been developed as  a web-based online platform that ensures all the critical strategic decisions and inputs are taken into the equation, step-by-step, resulting in a quality comprehensive enterprise and equity valuation for any business…..any size.

Some of the unique features of ONLINEBIZVALUATIONS.COM are the calculation of the appropriate discount rate based on the company specific risk factors, using the build-up method, the selection of the appropriate primary valuation method based on a decision tree that guides one to the primary and secondary methods and reasonability tests. In addition, there is a pre-valuation questionnaire that addresses all the critical components of the business model and will form part of the valuator’s working papers.

The valuator is guided with a step-by-step system that ensures all the financial and non-financial information is supplied resulting in a comprehensive valuation report that is realistic, objective and relevant for the South African business environment. The system allows one to value the same entity and business at the specified valuation date as often as one requires, anytime, anywhere, to do various simulations with no extra fees. The pricing is on a pay-as-you-go basis at exceptional value of R750 + VAT per valuation with discounts for bulk credit purchases.

 The registered auditor and professional accountant can now offer a full business valuation service with confidence. Registration is free with no annual subscription and there are numerous resources and helps to ensure one has a full understanding of the valuation process.
