Provides a reference point for practitioners, who may need to prepare or review a valuation of shares or intangible assets, and acts as a practical guide to the more straightforward valuations which are required for tax purposes.

Practical Share Valuation combines decades of the authors' practical experience in order to provide a reference guide to the valuation of unquoted shares and intangible assets as well as a practical handbook for practitioners preparing more routine valuations for tax purposes.

The book highlights the relevant case law relating to valuations and also provides a handy list of additional data sources to aid the valuer in gaining access to the comparator data and latest valuation standards available.

Whether you need to prepare a valuation or review work prepared by another practitioner, this book provides a wealth of easily accessible information, hints and tips to help you navigate through the potential minefield of share valuations.
