For business valuators, appraisers or investigators, normalizing a business owner’s compensation is a critical piece of the valuation process as there is an inverse relationship between Reasonable Compensation and value derived for the enterprise. Without a point solution, the compilation of Reasonable Compensation estimates for business valuation or investigation requires exhaustive scrutiny of the case law, monitoring ever-changing regulations, then painstakingly calculating the value of the services your closely held business clients provide in exchange for their salaries.
A significant component of a valuation report is the owner’s Reasonable Compensation. However, many small business owners have multiple job titles they perform to varying degrees, making it challenging to decide precisely what their Reasonable Compensation should be. RCReports ensures that when determining a business owner’s Reasonable Compensation, you can easily break down their job duties by title and percentage of time and then provides you and your client with accurate wage data supported by an independent, third-party source.
