Accredited Business Valuation Specialist | Accredited Forensic Accountant Specialist

Highly skilled ‘big 4’ and mid-tier accounting firm background with over twenty years experience

Lotus Amity is an accredited Business Valuation Specialist and Forensic Accountant Specialist with Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand. Lotus Amity provides reports relating to privately-held businesses involved in disputes, restructuring or transactions

Why Lotus Amity?

Lotus Amity provides reports at a higher level than you’d receive from a mid-tier firm, with full partner involvement but at a lower cost for these reasons:

  • mid-tier accounting practices offer a range of services including tax, audit and advisory; at Lotus Amity we don’t, we are dedicated to Business Valuations and Forensic Accounting
  • mid-tier accounting firms delegate reports to junior employees with little partner involvement; at Lotus Amity all the reporting work is completed at partner level
  • mid-tier accounting firms typically have premium CBD offices, large overheads and highly remunerated partners;  Lotus Amity has none of these

Lotus Amity are not property valuers or business broker valuers. Lotus Amity provides robust, premium valuation reports. 

Types of report

Lotus Amity produce comprehensive (fully supported and referenced) valuation reports in compliance with Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards and International Valuation Standards

The reports comply with the integrity, objectivity, confidentiality and professional requirements as set out in the APES 110 Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants. The reports are often used in litigation and meet court reporting requirements.
