This is the fourth in our series of Executive Forums on a range of specific issues concerning Just Terms Compensation.

In constructing compensation assessments arising from compulsory acquisition, an increasingly critical component is the disturbance to a business which operates on the land being acquired. This is a specialist field of forensic accounting which informs the overall compensation assessment provided for in the Land Acquisition (Just Terms Compensation) Act 1991. The recent tranche of private property acquisitions for the WestConnex and Metro projects has underscored the importance of business valuations to support compensation claims.

Join us as Andrew Firth explains:

  • The costs or losses that can be incurred by a business when forced to relocate
  • Key cases to support business disturbance claims
  • The evidence required to support the likely business disruption
  • Discount rates and calculating the net present value of post relocation losses

Professor John Sheehan LFAPI will act as moderator for the forum.
