Valuation for company accounts


What do we do? 

Acting for businesses, our Chartered Surveyors determine the value of a sites or buildings held at the date of reporting to help you accurately submit your annual company accounts.

We will provide a detailed, evidence based report, based on the statutory definition of market value that provides the ‘statement of value of property assets’ needed to file your accounts. Our report will fulfill all RICS requirements, comply with accountancy standards and meet your companies’ house or HMRC reporting deadline.

We assess all kinds of residential and commercial property including those of non-standard construction to provide our considered opinion of value. 

Our aim is to help you make sound financial decisions relating to property. A valuation conducted by a RICS registered valuer will ensure an accurate value of assets is provided that meet the demands of the valuation office agency on behalf of HMRC. It will also be conducted on the correct basis so the figure is not challenged so as to prevent you incurring interest on additional tax payable or penalties.



We aim to turn reports around within five to seven days of inspection and you will be able to talk directly to the surveyor working on your behalf should you have any questions.

What information do I need to provide the valuer for an accounting valuation?

  • A valuation date – your financial year end
  • Whether you follow UKGAAP or IFRS accounting standings
  • Access to inspect your buildings
  • Copies of any tenancy related documents for lease parts of your assets


Why do I need a valuation to submit my company accounts?

Accounting valuations are needed in the processes of valuing a company’s assets for financial reporting purposes.

When submitting your annual accounts to Companies House, you need to submit a statement of value of property assets owned by the business.

Assets such as property are carried at cost less depreciation and is carried on the balance sheet at far from their true value. As such, the value of these assets can have a big impact on your overall balance sheet and resulting taxation liabilities.


Can you conduct a desktop valuation?

Desktop valuations, where an opinion of value is reached without an inspection of the property, are not RICS Red Book compliant and as such we don’t conduct them.

We do however conduct desktop valuation updates. These desktop valuation updates are only suitable if we have visited the property on your behalf before, no significant alterations have been made, or the time elapsed since the inspection was conducted isn’t too great.

Desktop valuation updates are commonly used when the validity of the original valuation has expired (usually after three months of valuation date) and a retype is requested to state that the original value is still correct and the market has not significantly changed.


Why is valuation accuracy important?

It’s important to secure an accurate valuations for the calculation of company accounts. Underestimate the value and you risk having to pay out more corporation tax than you expected, but if you overestimate, and you may have to spend significant time trying to reclaim your Tax over payment.

HMRC has the right to challenge and investigate a valuation through its District Valuer Service (DVS).  If the valuation is challenged, particularly one not supported by a professional surveyor, you could face hefty fines for having been ‘negligent’ in how you obtained the valuation.

By instructing a RICS registered Chartered Surveyor to provide a valuation for your annual accounts you can be confident that will get an accurate valuation figure that will be accepted by HMRC and companies house when submitting your accounts.
