Business Valuation of a Company

Business Valuation of a Company

Obtaining a business valuation in Hong Kong follows the same general principles as elsewhere, but with some local considerations. Here's a breakdown:

What is Business Valuation?

Business valuation determines the economic worth of a company. It's used for various purposes such as:

  • Selling a business

  • Establishing partner ownership percentages

  • Tax purposes

  • Estate and succession planning

How is it Done in Hong Kong?

A business valuation specialist assists in getting an objective assessment of a company's value. Common methods used include:

  • Market Capitalization (Public Companies): Share price multiplied by outstanding shares.

  • Income Approach (Private Companies): Looks at future profit potential using methods like discounted cash flow (DCF).

  • Market Multiples Approach (Private Companies): Compares the business to similar companies that have been sold recently.

  • Asset-Based Approach: Values the company based on its net asset value.

Local Considerations

  • Hong Kong Standards: Valuation practices consider norms set by the company and adhere to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for fair value reporting.

  • Demand for Specialists: The demand for business valuation specialists is rising due to the growing importance of fair value reporting.
