Q: Great thank you. So the dynamic one will update itself, or I need to run it manually each time?

Q: Hi, I am trying to get the trial version of SiteMap XML Software to work before purchasing. I followed the instructions it seems to function but doesn't crawl any pages (just shows the initial URL in the sitemap). I don't see that answered in the FAQ's, could you suggest how to troubleshoot that?
A: You need to set your Include Url's with value to match your site structure. I added a / to Include Url's with and css to Exclude Url's with (to exclude all your css files being listed) clicked Generate Static Sitemap and returned a sitemap with 133 unique links as per screenshots below. See the Include URLs with section of the help file https://bizpep.com/sitemapxml/ for details. You may need to adjust these values further to suit your specific requirements. Let me know how you go.
Q: Is there a place to enter the fixed assets my client is also selling with his business? The way I understand your software, is that it only values the earnings of the business, not the assets you are selling? Is that correct?
A: Asset inputs are classed as Business Assets with their associate life span which are depreciated, property assets at market value, and other. These inputs are on the Input sheet under Valuation Data. The Valuation Data section of Help includes details https://bizpep.com/businessvaluation.html . The input used depends on what the asset is. If the fixed assets are part of the business and not property they should be included as Business Assets. If not related to the business ie the business is fully functional without it could be treated as completely separate and its market value simply added to the business valuation. If it is included as a component of the valuation it will impact the business valuation based on the required rate of return. Replacement Value of Business Assets Input the replacement value of physical business assets. Exclude property. Consider vehicles, plant and equipment. This forms a component of the total business investment. Life of Assets (years) Input the average life of the assets. The Replacement Value of Business Assets will be divided by the Life of Assets to provide an indication of annual asset depreciation expense. This will be used in determining the owners return from the business. Market Value of Property Input the estimated market value of property owned by the business. Property values are considered stable over the forecast period and no depreciation is allowed for. This forms a component of the total business investment. Other Investment in Business This is the calculated value of any other investment made in the business. It consists of operating capital and goodwill. This forms a component of the total business investment. This amount will be adjusted in-line with your Valuation Analysis.
Q: I'm keen to include the wages component to my spreadsheet but am unsure how this will affect the setup I already have. The info box says it will delete certain components and add others. I'm not sure which ones and whether they will affect me?
A: Before any change please back up all data (transactions and setup), this will allow you to restore if required. You can see the Preset Accounts detail at http://bas-i.com.au/accountsgst.html . If you change the preset account or set up (ie Include Wages) then any existing pre set Accounts will be removed and the new pre set accounts added. Any transactions that are set with an account that has been removed will become orphaned and unable to be reconciled in the BAS View. The transactions will still remain but in List View they will be shaded red. Accounts that you have individually added will remain valid. If you Include Wages existing preset accounts will be replaced with the Include Wage setup and if needed you can then re load the required preset accounts (ie click Generic etc..). In list view check that you have no orphaned accounts (shaded red) and you should be all good. Please back up before making any changes and ensure you backup regularly. All data is saved locally on your system (no where else). Hope that makes sense. Additional detail on accounts is available at http://bas-i.com.au/chartofaccounts.html . If you have a different computer or browser you can use your account link to access BAS-I.C and play around with account settings without impacting your current setup.
