How much is your business worth? And how is its value determined? Nederhof can help you answer those questions. There is a range of situations in which it is important to determine the value of your business or share package. Each situation comes with specific points for attention:
In acquisition and sale transactions Nederhof provides insight into a company’s economic value or the value of your share package. This valuation can be the basis for price negotiations. A value analysis sheds light also on the continuity of a company’s earning capacity: information that is essential to the timing of acquisitions or sales, and thus to their success.
Nederhof acts as an advisor to a party in disputes between shareholders, associates and partners, providing solid substantiation for the basics of (out-of-court) settlement. Also frequently appointed as an expert in legal proceedings, Nederhof supports the principles of due process.
Many aspects come into play in determining a company’s value when you get divorced. Taxation, financeability and continuity of the business may have an impact. Valuing a company as part of a matrimonial estate is a completely different ball game. Nederhof knows the rules inside out.
A deceased’s estate can include share packages. Before dividing the estate it is important to have an independent party assess the value in a transparent manner. Not just for inheritance tax purposes but also if the interested parties are family members who either work or do not work in the family’s business. Nederhof is that independent party.
Tax-related transactions usually do not involve external parties. Examples are transfers within family-owned businesses, protective assessments or inheritance and gift tax planning.

We stand for approachability, efficient communication and commitment. Nederhof is part of the members-only platforms of BROOKZ and DCFA, and of several informal platforms like M&A the Hague, a local network of advisors in the mergers and acquisitions practice.
Leading companies out of crisis calls for considerable expertise, experience and grit on the part of directors and interested parties. In these circumstances entrepreneurs may feel the need to talk to a clear-headed advisor to help them take quick and adequate decisions in stressful situations.
Insolvency is often a hectic process; the liquidity squeeze may cause tension among the principal banker and creditors. In those situations time is an unaffordable luxury. Clarifying the nature and scope of the problems in hand and resolving those issues take priority. Is a relaunch possible, or do you have to divest? And what would be the best corporate structure for your purposes?
