Financial Services Advisory Team

DJB’s Business Valuation Group has the training and experience necessary to assess the value of virtually any business. Our team includes three fully accredited members of The Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators who work with you to understand and quantify the specific business issues that affect the value conclusion.

Calculation, Estimate, and Comprehensive Valuation Report options provide three different levels of assurance, each fulfilling different reporting requirements at varied costs. We will work with you to ensure the report is appropriate for your budget and requirements.

Valuation reports may be prepared for the following purposes:

  • Litigation or negotiation
  • Estate and tax planning
  • Business transition planning
  • Business investments, acquisitions, divestitures
  • Shareholder agreements & disputes
  • Matrimonial disputes
  • Internal use
  • Valuing intangible assets

DJB’s Business Valuation Group professionals are also knowledgeable and experienced in providing services beyond traditional business valuation, including:

  • Adjusted Income Reports – The Federal Child Support Guidelines set out the adjustments to be considered in determining a payor spouse’s income for child support purposes. Our professionals prepare ‘Adjusted Income Reports’ for this purpose and provide litigation support in the event that the parties are unable to reach an agreement on child and spousal support issues.
  • Collaborative Dispute Settlements – If you choose to take a collaborative approach to resolving your differences, our team members are trained in collaborative practices. Services that we can provide in this area include, asset division, disposition cost reports, industry based research, mediation services, and the calculation of adjusted income.
  • Due Diligence – If you are considering the purchase of a business you may need assistance with determining the quality and sustainability of the earnings stream you are acquiring. Alternatively, if you are considering the sale of your business you may want to ensure that the business is ‘ready for sale’ in order to give you the best chance to maximize the proceeds you receive. Our professionals can work with you to ensure that you don’t pay too much, or sell for too little.
  • Forensic Accounting – If you are in need of investigating an alleged fraud case or a financial disruption, you will require someone qualified in forensic accounting to quantify the loss.
  • Mediation Services – When you find yourself in a financial dispute, having a professional qualified in mediation services can help you navigate through a difficult situation.
