Q: I would like some more information about the Investment Analysis Software. Are its calculation procedures in compliance with AIMR-PPS/GIPS? Do you help import data from clearing service providers? If so, are there specific service providers or data formats? Do you provide training and support?

A: Investment Analysis software does not apply accounting or financial standards. It applies basic input variables to build an investment analysis by year and provide key investment performance indicators for the analysis duration. These are simply return calculations on investments. As such minimal inputs are required. It does not provide import data functionality. Support is provided in the Help file and via the Contact Us form. Full details and access to the software for free evaluation is available at .

Q: I am new to this and trying to sell my first business. Something is not clicking for me, if I say I want a lower 3 year average return on investment, why does that make the valuation go up? I would think it would be just the opposite. What am I not getting?

A: This is the return for the purchaser. If the purchaser wants a % return of 10% and the business generates a $1000 then the valuation is $5000 ie 20% of $5000 is $1000 . If required return is 10% then the valuation is $10000 ie 10% of $10000 is $1000. So the lower the required return the higher the valuation (assuming all else remains constant).

Q: I am in the process of evaluating the trial version of the Business Valuation Model Excel. I am not sure how taxation is dealt with or where it is incorporated into the model. Please clarify whether the model looks at pre-tax or post-tax profits. If taxation is not considered how can changes be made to look at after tax returns.

A: The model is pre-tax. Taxation is not a consideration and is not a componet of the valuation. Taxation depends upon individual circumstances and as with any investment valuation it should be judged on its merit (ie not for tax reasons). Were applicable the impact of taxation can then be considered.
