Many articles have been written and many debates had about what makes a good business valuation report, especially when determining a market value for Australian taxation purposes.

Compiling a good business valuation report requires extensive knowledge of businesses and industries; an understanding of economic, financial, and political environments; technical proficiency in applying both quantitative and qualitative judgment; and wisdom in writing a meaningful report.
