Ensure your business assets are valued correctly

Ensuring your business assets are adequately insured and can be replaced following a loss is one of the biggest responsibilities for  business owners and management. 

The whole purpose of insurance is to ensure you can replace your assets, and continue to trade as you were before the loss. This won’t occur if the declared values are incorrect.

Even a partial loss can be devastating, and if co-insurance provisions apply, history shows most businesses are unable to recover. By embedding an insurance valuation program into your insurance requirements, the majority of these problems can be avoided.

We offer a full range of valuation services including:

  • Insurance: we review sums insured pre-loss, as opposed to validating the values post-loss.
  • Accounting and taxation compliance: including advice on accounting standards in respect to valuation requirements.
  • Mergers, acquisitions, capital works and taxation: including purchase price allocation and stamp duty exercises.
  • Litigation: for family law or other litigation purposes, including post-loss claims disputes.
  • Specialised assets: valuations for all types of tangible assets including land, buildings, plant, equipment, infrastructure, heritage assets and fine arts.
  • Single and multi-year programs. Both on-site and desk-top valuations.
  • Asset rebuild optimisation.
  • Portfolio modelling and standard rebuild determinations.

It’s our business to work with you to improve your organisations’ risk profile, to optimise your insurance coverage, and represent your business correctly to the insurers.
