Stock Valuations for buyers & sellers

If you are buying or selling a business and there is stock, Hunt Management Services can provide you with a professional and independent inventory valuation for one, or both, of the parties involved in the change of ownership.

As an experienced stock auditor Paul Hunt can provide reliable, accurate and fair valuation of all stock at the time of completion, providing peace of mind to buyers and sellers.

Although we are able to work for either the buyer or the seller, it is often quicker and cheaper Hunt Management Solutions work for both the buyer and seller on an independent joint valuation audit.

A change of hands valuation audit includes

A valuation for change of ownership (and year ends - see below) will show at cost the value of stockholding, with the drink being broken down to individual products. Often with the food on a changeover it is advised that there is no food left to hand over, if there is some remaining then it is usually advised that a figure is agreed between both parties.

Food for an end of year valuation will be counted by products & an overall value given, due to the amount of products involved in a food count there would not be an individual breakdown of all the product.

If a year-end valuation is not done at the beginning of the month, then the valuation can be adjusted to the year-end date by using sales & purchasing data.

On changeover I can also provide: -

  • The service of valuing loose catering effects & glassware.
  • Reading the meters
  • Valuing gas tanks of LPG
