Welcome to IBC Laws Valuers & Valuation Page
A professional practice is multi-dimensional practice and he must always look for the additions of services in his basket to offer. Sec. 247 of the Companies Act 2013 effective from 18th October, 2018, has granted an opportunity to take the task as registered valuer. There is immense opportunity for growth in this industry. We see professionals being exposed to a wider variety of opportunities – enhancing their professional and career growth chances. We believe that the Indian business valuation industry will grow significantly, especially domestically, given the acceptance of IFRS and fair value reporting in India, as well as in the global markets.
A valuer is a professional who carries out inspections in order to help determine the current market value of property, land, stocks, shares, debentures, securities or goodwill or any other assets or net worth of a company or its liabilities. The role of valuer can be undertaken by an estate agentor by an independent professional (often a qualified surveyor).
