Laura Keily

Barrister & Founder of Immediation

Pentagon Corporate assisted us with a company valuation, demonstrating clear skill. They were great to work with and I recommend them. Pentagon Corporate also prepared an Information Memorandum and Investor Presentation which were highly valuable in raising capital. The work was very thorough and showed great attention to detail and responsiveness at all times.

Takie Christofides

Mergers & Acquisitions, NAB

Pentagon Corporate assisted me with the valuation of my business, which was very helpful in determining an exit price. The report produced was very detailed, thorough and professional. I was consistently updated on the status of the report with the finished product being ready in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Pentagon Corporate.

Samuel David

Principal, JosephDavid Lawyers

I engaged Pentagon Corporate for a Family Law dispute. We were provided with timely and reliable information and a very useful, thorough and well presented Company business valuation in a complex financial dispute, which ultimately proved extraordinarily valuable in the resolution of the matter by agreement. I highly recommend Pentagon Corporate’s services and will continue to engage them in future matters.

We offer extremely competitive fees, which are generally around one half to one third of the large firms (such as the second-tier accounting firms) and work is not delegated to junior staff to save on hourly rates. In most circumstances we offer a fixed fee, which provides fee certainty for you (we believe there is no certainty to clients with an hourly rate in the absence of a cap).
