info iconTypes of Jewellery Valuations

Only those specifically referred to on this page are described here

Further types will be mentioned on the Valuer's profile pages as there are several other types of valuation reports, each with its own particular wording, purpose, objectives and resulting values. For an expanded list of types, go to the Valuation Definitions page.

Capital Gains Assessment (rarely requested) - This appraisal would be submitted to HMRC to prove a gain (or otherwise) in capital worth over a set period so that Capital Gains Tax liabilities can be calculated. The figure presented in the report represents the difference in Open Market values of an item between two specific dates. This figure does not include VAT.

Insurance Replacement (routinely requested) - Used to present to an insurance company prior to taking out or renewing an insurance policy. This enables them to establish their maximum financial exposure in the event of a loss. The value represents the modal retail replacement cost of an item of equal merit from the most appropriate type of source within a given broad geographic area. Whether the item is valued on a New Replacement Value (NRV) or Secondhand Replacement Value (SHRV) basis is largely dictated by the type and age of the item, although it is possible for the policy-holder and/or the insurance company to have some sway too. All values normally include VAT.

Probate (commonly requested) - Used to establish the value of a Deceased's estate to enable the calculation of Inheritance Tax due to HMRC and settling of probate. The cited values represent the open market value of the item(s) as of the Date of Death. The values do not include VAT.

Independent Jewellery Appraisers also provide a valuation service throughout Tyne and Wear and Northumberland. Please see the Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Jewellers and Jewellers in Northumberland pages for more details.
