HOW MUCH IS A BUSINESS WORTH AND HOW TO VALUE A BUSINESS?
Business valuations are prepared in accordance with the International Valuation Standards, which are also required to follow in Slovenia. The fundamental task of the appraisers (valuators) is to use the appropriate valuation methods and techniques to disclose the true and objective value of the company to the client.
