Valuing the uniqueness of each business.

Objective, tailored services for your valuation needs

Valuation is not a formulaic process. Each determination is based on a unique set of factors—financing, business models, acquisitions, re-organizations, succession plans—and requires a thorough understanding of the industries involved.

BDO’s Chartered Business Valuators (CBVs) draw on their extensive experience working with owner-managed businesses to large public companies, to tailor services for each individual client. We invest the time to understand your business beyond the engagement requirements. Our team seamlessly integrates the needs of all parties to provide clear, independent specialized advice for both simple and highly complicated valuations.

Our experience in this space is bolstered by the significant volume of private market transactions that flow through our service lines and network. We understand the marketplace and possess the know-how to provide practical solutions to problems. Our services include financial and tax reporting, transaction support, complex financial instruments, and litigation support.
