Webinar – Case Law Update: Business Valuers in Court

12 July 2018 12:00 – 13:00

This webinar will explore and explain some of the bases of valuation which have been codified in the International Valuation Standards 2017. It is therefore of considerable importance for business valuers to be aware of these different bases, to apply the relevant basis correctly and to support their conclusions as several cases have seen the use of different valuation bases in recent years.

Areas such as Determinations, will be discussed and will look at six different cases in which Determinations were challenged, with three different outcomes and highlight how this work carries with it significant power, but even greater responsibility. Delegates will also learn about claims under warranties in share purchase agreements, which are viewed by many as difficult to pursue. We shall explore the background of these cases and how they have presented a change in the ways that valuations are presented in and argued in Court.

Benefits of attending:

  • Delegates will get an insight into the various types of Valuation bases and how understanding the importance of them will benefit business valuers to support their conclusions.
  • There are major responsibilities inextricably tied to the responsibilities of undertaking Determinations. The webinar will look at recent cases relating to this type of assignment;
  • Learn about the change in valuation terminology and computational methods applied by those engaged in contentious business valuation.
  • Case studies in which the outcomes presented change the way that valuations are presented and argued in Court.

The conference is the primary opportunity for UK forensic accountants and expert witnesses to come together for technical updates, to learn about developments relevant to forensic accounting and to network with others in the industry. A combination of highly relevant primary sessions and the opportunity to choose from a wide range of specialist breakouts means that this course is highly relevant to anyone practicing in the forensic accounting arena.
