Understanding cost price components

Purchase Price Allocation, or Cost Price Allocation, gives substance to how a company accounts for the purchase price of an acquisition in its financial statements. After an acquisition of a company, under both the Dutch Accounting Standards (Dutch Gaap) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS-3), the price paid must be allocated to the assets acquired.


  • With a Purchase Price Allocation, assets are valued at fair value or market value, where continuation at the same location is the starting point.
  • Our appraisers also know how to deal with deviating situations (e.g. IFRS 5).
  • The report lists cash generating units and provides transparent insight into the fair value of land, property, machinery and equipment.
  • Our starting point is as much as possible based on evidence.
