Use of Discounted Cash Flow in real estate investment valuation

To progress the valuation review and implement those recommendations specific to Discounted Cash Flows, we have launched a consultation on a series of proposed outputs focused on supporting a better understanding and appropriate application of the DCF model. 

Given the breadth and diversity of RICS Registered Valuers in the UK and around the world, the independent Valuation Review Implementation Committee (VRIC) recognises the importance of bringing about lasting change through proportionate and supportive measures, over an appropriate timeframe, rather than through any one single regulatory intervention. 

For this reason, we have launched a consultation on the ‘use of Discounted Cash Flow in real estate investment valuation’, open until 12th April.  

The consultation seeks feedback on changes to current standards like the Red Book and its UK supplement, a transition web-hub hosting supporting tools, initiatives for upskilling the valuation profession and a practice information document.

If you require further assistance or information, please contact Helvi Cranfield

This consultation will close on 12th April 2023, 23:59 UK time.
