Financial Valuations, Allowances & Compensation
Being faced with a Compulsory purchase order (CPO) can be a difficult time for any business. We can help with the valuation of machinery and all business assets including stock, the assessment of removal costs and disturbance. We can also help to assess compensation and negotiate with acquiring authorities.
We also work for acquirers whether government departments or local authorities, in vetting any claims that follow CPOs - and of course we dispose of surplus assets in partial or total extinguishment cases.
