DIRECTORS / CONSULTANTS
Ian is a Law Society (now Sweet and Maxwell) registered Expert Witness, member of the Society of Share and Business Valuers and RICS Chartered Valuation Surveyor and Registered Business Valuer.
Prior to Valuation Consulting Ian was a Director of a specialist business valuation company in a major international Investment Bank. Ian Brewer is the Director in charge of Valuation Consulting's Northern Office.
After completing a degree at Leeds University he joined HMRC in 1975. During his early career in Government he worked on all aspects of Inheritance Tax and valuation and then became a member of the HMRC's Central Training Section. While there he undertook the Civil Service College's Training of Trainers Diploma which covered all aspects of training including distance learning and computer based training. His last job before joining Shares Valuation was working directly for the Board of Inland Revenue on areas including the Budget and the Board's Report.
In 1991 he joined UK Government's Department dedicated to the valuation of shares, companies, unincorporated business, intellectual property and intangible assets including goodwill. He also became a senior member of the training team assisting in the writing of both the Valuation Training Manual and the Instructions.
In May 1996 he joined the Leeds office of PwC specialising in financial valuation of companies and their intangible assets where Ian's clients and valuation work was for both tax and commercial purposes. He worked for existing PwC clients and for accountancy firms and companies who did not have the necessary expertise within their own organisations. Ian's standing is such that he regularly lectures about the valuation of companies and intellectual property for various accounting professional bodies and conference organisations.
