"A value is valuable when the value of value is valuable to oneself."

 Dayananda Saraswati  1824-1883

 

Values and valuation are much discussed but often misunderstood.  In the financial world this can  lead to misunderstanding, market inefficiency and mispricing.


Valuology advises valuation providers, valuation users and professional organisations on how their processes and procedures can be improved to ensure that valuations are properly prepared and understood by those who rely on them. Our objective is to maximise market confidence in the valuations provided and minimise risks for providers and users.

IVSC Consults on Inventory Valuation

The IVSC has issued a draft of a proposed new standard, IVS 230 Inventory.

Whether or not an item is classed as inventory depends on any applicable regulations and how the owner or controller of the item uses it.  Consequently this draft potentially affects valuers of most types of asset, whether it they are physical assets such as real estate, machinery, equipment, goods in production or stock for sale or non physical intangible assets.

Comments are due by 30 June 2020

See a copy of the consultation paper and our comments.

Resources for Valuers

Our Valuers' Briefings present useful information for valuers on various technical issues.  Available as either a booklet or eBook, they provide an affordable resource for the busy practitioner.

Keeping Lookout

We review proposed new laws, regulations and standards that are relevant to valuers.  We then produce summaries of the key things valuers need to know and what we think of the proposals.  We also provide a copy of any response we make to consultations.
