As part of a settlement my husband will get out joint business which he intends to continue. How do we get a fair valuation as he says we should take into account redundancies, capital gains etc, but surely if the successful business is to continue these factors are irrelevant. Can anyone advise please?

You need an expert report from an accountant who specialises in business valuations. He/she will value it on a going concern basis using the appropriate method. There really isn''t a short cut to doing this. I recommend that you don''t use the businesses own accountant for this as he/she is potentially conflicted by continuing to work for your ex after the transfer takes place.
