On 17 July 2019 the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) issued a 47-page Decision on the compensation due on extinguishment of a waste transfer and skip hire business that was compulsorily purchased in June 2012 – Welcocks Skips Limited v Network Rail Infrastructure Limited  UKUT 0162 (LC) ACQ/84/2017.
The Claimant appointed a valuations expert from BDO and Network Rail appointed Charles Lazarevic of Vero Consulting. The two experts worked together over many months to identify the differences between them leaving the Tribunal to consider two issues: whether the business had suffered pre-possession losses and the appropriate multiplier to apply to the agreed earnings figure. The case was heard over 6 days in January before Her Honour Judge Alice Robinson and Mr A J Trott FRICS and involved extensive scrutiny of trade and financial data, with detailed examination of both forensic accountants and specialist waste industry experts.
The Tribunal ultimately awarded compensation of £7,581,636 for the value of the business, and a total award of £8,140,023.37 plus statutory interest. The previous business loss decision following business extinguishment was in 2017.
