Why would I need a valuation? 


Litigation and dispute resolution
In legal action involving tangible assets, valuers are commonly engaged to assess asset values, comment on all matters relating to assets and to provide expert advice in accordance with court rules. We can provide independent valuations and expert witness valuation reports for these proceedings.
Tax purposes
A professional valuation provides a sound basis for determining your fiscal obligations in accordance with Australian revenue legislation. Valuations may be required for capital gains tax, stamp duty, state landholder duty requirements, and division 40 and 43 obligations. As registered Tax agents we are fully qualified to meet tax valuation requirements.
In a family law settlement, an independent valuation provides objectivity and clarity in often difficult circumstances. Aon provides valuations in accordance with family law court requirements, acting as either single or adversarial expert.
Accounting standards & compliance

To meet Australian and International Accounting Standards (including IFRS and US GAAP requirements) in the assessment of market value when businesses are acquired, ongoing impairment testing, and regular revaluations to fair value.

Mergers and acquisitions
Knowing the value of your assets can provide you with an advantage during negotiations for mergers, acquisitions and disposals, and maximise ongoing benefits from the correct allocation of value between tangible assets and goodwill both from a balance sheet and taxation position
The whole purpose of insurance cover is to put you back in the position you were in before the loss. An accurate declaration of asset value by an independent valuer will guarantee full protection of those assets in the event of a loss.
