Questions & Answers
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 bizpep.com . 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 would like to learn more. What does the subscription give you? It seems that the valuation is free as it is just a spreadsheet, am I wrong? You provide valuation service, and financial analysis services? Anything else? Do business owners primarily use this? or do advisors as well?
A: Subscription fully enables the analysis software and allows use on multiple devices by the individual licensed email address holder for the 1 year duration of the license. In evaluation mode without a license some valuation inputs are locked. Business Valuation allows individuals or consultants to perform their own business valuation, it is an xlsx file developed with Microsoft Excel and will run on current versions of Microsoft Excel and most other spreadsheet applications. It does not include any macros or visual basic coding. Business Valuation is used by both individual business owners and advisers. Full help and additional detail is available at bizpep.com
