Insurance: Theft & burglary continues to be a great worry, while at the same time insurance companies and loss adjusters are becoming more stringent in their approach to claims. Professionally compiled inventories with certified valuation of items is the only generally effective way of proving ownership and value to insurers. Insurance valuations can also lead to reduced insurance premiums and can help police restore lost items to their rightful owners.
Probate & Inheritance Tax: Valuations needed on the death of a family member by executors can not only speed Probate and clear Inheritance Tax matters, but also form the basis for equitable distribution of the estate and/or the eventual sale of any surplus items by auction.
Family Division: Valuations can ensure the equitable dispersal of chattels between parties.
Capital Gains Tax: Valuations can form the basis of calculation of a client’s liability for Capital Gains Tax.
