Business valuation is a core skill of many valuers and forms part of the professional services provided by many RICS professionals. Professional business valuations are vital to a healthy market and stable economy, forming the basis of performance analysis, financing decisions, transactional or development advice, dispute resolution, taxation and various statutory applications.

Specialist business valuers can work in both the public and private sector and practice the valuation of both small businesses and large corporations. Robust practice standards form the basis of high-quality business valuations.

Module One: Step-by-step to valuing a business (26 February)

This course provides you with the basic methodologies and skills needed to perform valuation for a business and intangible asset. It will be particularly valuable to those who are looking for a detailed step-by-step explanation of how to value a business. Three basic valuation methodologies — namely market approach, income approach and cost approach — will be covered with real-life case studies.

Module Two: Getting qualified as a chartered business valuer (27 February)

The competency requirements of this pathway are similar to the valuation pathway, however, this pathway includes the valuation of business interests and intangible assets instead of properties. This course will help you to create a strong and defined written submission in-line with this pathway's competency requirements.  Using a blend of case studies and real-life examples of business valuation, you will gain skills to effectively demonstrate your own abilities against the RICS framework.
