Buyer and Seller Stocktaking and Audits
Whether you are buying a new business or selling your business, an independent stocktaking and audit service protects the interests of both parties. As an independent stocktaker we are able to work for the new, previous owner or both providing a report and year-end valuation certificates (your accountant will usually require this).
Your New Owner (Buyer) or Departing Owner (Seller) Audit
A New Owner or Departing Owner Stocktaking or Audit typically includes:
- Out of date, short date, excess, adulterated or out of condition stock all have to be taken into account when valuing the stock on hand at valuation (SAV)
- Knowledge of prices is essential in this area
- A valuation certificate is issued, the figure of which is the amount payable for the stock on hand at changeover.
- An inventory is normally issued.
Superb Value for Owner/Seller Joint Audits
While we are able to represent the buyer or the seller with our Audit and Stocktaking Services there will be un-necessary duplication if both sides conduct their own audits. As we are independent we can represent both sides and we can usually halve our fees, making this superb value for both buyer and seller.
