Our specialist forensic accounting and expert witness team continues to advise on business valuations, loss claims and financial disputes.
Many of our assignments relate to divorce where business valuations are needed to assist with proceedings. Often we will also be advising on taxation and liquidity issues as there may be an intention that a shareholding is disposed of, with the intended extraction of a spouse from a business as part of the divorce proceedings.
Civil disputes may require business and share valuations and again we are able to advise on potential taxation liabilities and the mitigation of liabilities.
Our forensic accounting services will often be requested where fraud or theft is suspected and a detailed review of the accounting records is required to identify irregularities.
We are also able to assist on loss claims, where our client is looking to be recompensed for the detrimental actions of third parties.
Our instructions will often come through solicitors and we will liaise with the instructing parties on the assignment.
A written report will normally be prepared and we may be requested to attend Court in the case of divorce and civil disputes, so that the findings in the report can be discussed.
Whatever your requirements, get in touch with our expert forensic accountancy team for a no-obligation discussion.
