How much are the owner benefits provided by your business going to be worth when it comes time to sell?
 
The value of any business is determined by the income it provides its owners. Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE) is used to assign a valuation base to the full benefit stream that a business provides to an owner.
 
Many business owners receive the tax benefit of expenses deducted by the company which also provide some personal benefits. SDE valuation is typically used for smaller businesses whose buyers are most likely to be individuals.
