Appraisal definitions

There are many different definitions for the appraisal of movable assets. Which one is best for you as the client, really depends on what you need. Do you want to find an investor or sell your machinery as quickly as possible to free up some space? Are you keen on a sale & lease-back deal or is the company simply insolvent? You will find a selection of internationally recognised definitions on this page. We can handle all these appraisals on your behalf. Simply contact us, and we will discuss the reasons for which you require a valuation. You will usually receive an offer within 24 hours.

1.

Fair market value

represents the estimated amount, expressed in monetary terms, which can reasonably be expected for the movable asset in an exchange transaction between a willing buyer and a willing seller at a given time, whereby neither is compelled to buy or sell and both are in possession of all the relevant facts.

2.

Fair market value in continued use

represents the estimated amount, expressed in monetary terms, that can reasonably be expected for the movable asset in an exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller at a given time, whereby neither is compelled to buy or sell, both are in possession of all the relevant facts, also concerning its installation, and under the assumption that the returns are commensurate with the quoted value. This amount includes all normal direct and indirect costs, such as installation and other assembly costs to make the movable asset fully operable.

3.

Fair market value – installed

represents the estimated amount, expressed in monetary terms, which can reasonably be expected for the movable asset in an exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller at a given time, whereby neither is compelled to buy or sell and both are in possession of all the relevant facts, also concerning its installation. Included in this amount are all normal direct and indirect costs, such as installation and other assembly costs to make the movable asset fully operable.

4.

Fair market value – removal 

represents the estimated amount, expressed in monetary terms, that can reasonably be expected for the movable asset in an exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller at a given time, whereby neither is compelled to buy or sell and both are in possession of all the relevant facts, with due consideration that the entire asset will be moved to a different location.

5.

Liquidation value in place

The liquidation value in place is the estimated amount, expressed in monetary terms, which could typically be obtained for a failed, inoperable asset in a properly advertised transaction in which the seller is compelled to sell on a given date, assuming that the entire asset is sold intact.

6.

Orderly liquidation value

is the estimated amount, expressed in monetary terms, which could typically be obtained from a liquidation sale if a reasonable period of time were allowed for marketing in order to find a buyer or buyers, whereby the seller is under the compulsion to sell on an ‘as is – where is’ basis on a specific date.

7.

Forced liquidation value 

is the estimated amount, expressed in monetary terms, which could typically be obtained for the entire asset if short-term marketing were necessary as an online auction and the seller is under the ‘direct’ compulsion to sell on an ‘as is – where is’ basis on a specific date. It is assumed in this case that a reasonable period for marketing will not be available.

8.

Scrap value 

is the estimated amount of money that could be obtained for the asset if it were sold at a time as recyclable material and not for continued productive use.
