The Rangewell Opticians Services Directory

At Rangewell, as part of our commitment to the optician profession in the UK, we have put together a directory of people with the skills you need to support your business. So, if you need professional support, call us for details of the professionals who can help with expertise and services you need - and who cover your location.

A valuer is a professional who carries out inspections in order to help determine the current market value of a property or a business. The role of valuer can be undertaken by an estate agent or qualified surveyor or by an independent business professional

Typically, they act on the instructions of the vendor when a business sale is contemplated.

However, buyers may also appoint a valuer to conduct a valuation if they are considering purchasing a property or business.

Local authorities can also use valuers to help establish council tax and rating levels - and lending institution who are considering funding the purchase may call in a valuer to make an independent assessment.

A business valuation - as opposed to a property valuation - will estimate the economic value of an owner's interest in a business. Valuation is used by potential buyers to determine the price they are willing to pay for a business.

In addition to estimating the selling price of a business, the same valuation process could be required to resolve disputes relating to estates and taxation, divorce litigation and also for estimating the value of partners' ownership interest for buy-sell agreements during disagreements. In some cases, a court will appoint a forensic accountant to perform the business valuation.

In all cases, the valuer must have an expert understanding of the optician sector in order to fully appreciate the value and the potential of a business.

Our directory includes the values with the special knowledge required.
