BVR Compensation Resource Center

A private company owner’s compensation is among the most contested issues in a business valuation, right up there with discounts and premium issues.  The Internal Revenue Code, Section 162 (a) allows that “a reasonable allowance for salaries or other compensation for personal services actually rendered” may be deducted as a business expense – the Code does not allow for unreasonable compensation to be deducted. 

The identification of and adjustments to unreasonable compensation are often contentious issues in business appraisals.  Some key areas in which reasonable compensation is an issue are:

  • Valuation of a noncompete
  • Professional versus enterprise goodwill
  • Marital dissolutions
  • IRS compensation challenges

To help you navigate this complicated issue, we have developed the BV Compensation Resource Center that puts all our compensation resources in one place.  These resources include:
