Many business owners manage their business to minimize income taxes. If they wish to sell their business in the next few years, they should reconsider this strategy and plan on the business showing a respectable profit. After all, a potential buyer wishes to purchase a profitable business. Showing a larger profit may mean that the business owner will pay more income tax in the short run. However, they should realize a higher price when the business is sold.

When estimating the value of a business, the owner's compensation often needs to be adjusted or "normalized." A small adjustment in that expense can make a large difference in the value of the business, once the appropriate multiple is applied to normalized earnings.
