Many business owners dream of selling their business at a price that will pay them in retirement what they earned while working. The ones who achieve this goal start planning and preparing well before retirement by saving a portion of personal income from the business in retirement accounts and diverse investments and by managing the business so it’s offered for sale at the peak of its success.
Not everyone needs to earn the same amount of money in retirement as he did while working, but many business owners hope to get as much money as possible for their business so they can invest in other income-generating instruments. That requires the business to be valued as high as possible.
Most businesses are valued by multiplying their earning power by a predetermined number that’s usually based on the type of business it is; for some industries, it’s a multiple of two or three. The earning power is determined by adding to the net profit the non-cash or discretionary expenses not necessary to running the business, such as the owner’s wages and compensation package, the loan or lease payment for the company car, depreciation and taxes.
