How To Use This Calculator
Enter your revenue and expense numbers based on your last full years Profit & Loss statement in the Original Amount column of the Valuation Workbook tab. Add / change any expense descriptions or columns as necessary. Make no adjustments to these numbers or this column
The adjusted expenses will automatically calculate and total the Adjusted Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE) which is used to determine the worth of most small businesses.
In the Add Back column, adjust your expenses as necessary. To do this, enter the negative sum of the total of the expense to be added back. Expenses should only be added back if they were of personal nature or a one time expense, and they should not be necessary to maintain ongoing business operations.
Our calculator will choose the appropriate industry multiples based on your chosen industry and will automatically calculate an estimate of the range for which your business would sell for on the external market.
Some examples of Add Back expenses: owner salary, owner payroll tax, owner health insurance (if you would not offer it to a manager), personal supplies purchased by business, depreciation, amortization, interest.
