Deciding on the Appropriate Valuation Report
In determining the appropriate type of valuation report it is important to consider the purpose, availability of supporting information, need for assurance and the credibility of the report for the intended purpose. The Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators practice standards outline three main types of Valuation Reports:
Calculation of Value
- Calculation Valuation Reports provide the lowest level of detail, concise descriptions of information, analysis and commentary and come with the lowest level of assurance.
- Typical uses for Calculation Valuation Reports can include matrimonial disputes, high-level reviews and preliminary analysis.
Estimate of Value
- Estimate Valuation Reports contain more detail than a Calculation Valuation Report but are less detailed than a Comprehensive Valuation Report. Estimate Valuation Reports have a wider scope of review than a Calculation Valuation Report and will include detailed industry and economic analysis to support our value conclusions. The value conclusion in an Estimate Valuation Report contains a higher level of assurance than a Calculation Valuation Report.
- Typical uses for Estimate Valuation Reports can include business purchase and sales, litigation, internal planning purposes, evaluation of strategic options and income tax planning.
- Comprehensive Valuation Reports include a comprehensive scope of review and estensive research into business operations, economics trends and industry movement to support our value conclusions. Comprehensive Valuation Reports comes with the highest level of assurance.
- Typical uses for Comprehensive Valuation Reports can include litigation and business purchase and sales.
Other Report Types
- There are several other types of reports that can be written to the standard of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators, including:
- Limited Critique Reports
- Fairness Opinions
- Investment Entity Review Reports
