About Value ADE

Value ADE is a Geelong-based firm in the business of appraising value, developing value and educating on value. For more than a decade, we have applied our expertise to carry out business valuations across an expansive range of industry sectors. Between 2011 and 2016, we valued businesses totalling more than $1 billion.

Value ADE are not tax agents, accountants, financial planners or anything else for that matter. We are expert and experienced business valuers with proven knowledge when it comes to business valuations. But we would rather share that knowledge than keep it to ourselves, and there is always more to learn.

We are experienced across a range of industries, business types and sizes, we run our own business and understand the pleasures and pains of business and we have depth of technical experience when it counts. At Value ADE, we understand that you are cost conscious, therefore our prices don’t require you to re-mortgage your house.

We are a proud Geelong independent business valuations firm, with director Lachlan McColl and his family based in the city. This allows him to provide affordable business valuation services to regional operators, and Lachlan will also travel to you. At Value ADE, we know our limits and we’re not afraid to decline work if we can’t offer the most appropriate service to clients.
