Upon discontinuation of a marriage in which one or both partners are active as entrepreneur, a business valuation can be required in the division and settlement of the marital capital.
The business valuation is translated into financial terms as the economic value of future cash flows. Furthermore, other aspects surrounding the divorce have to be taken into account, such as labour remuneration and pension claims. Also, often an assessment needs to be made to which extent liquidities from the enterprise can be withdrawn in order to reach a suitable settlement.
Our firm has broad experience regarding valuation matters within the framework of divorces. We act as independent experts, often appointed by the judiciary, but also as consultant to one of the parties. Apart from that, as experts we have been involved several times in arranging for amicable, extra-judicial solutions, among other things via mediation.
The membership of our partners with the Dutch Institute for Register Valuators and registration with the Dutch National Register for Legal Experts guarantee an adequately carried out expert survey. Please call us for an introductory meeting.
