Show Notes

Back to regularly scheduled programming! Host Tom Bronson chats with Anneka Sciola about Quality of Earnings, or QofE, in this week’s episode of the Maximize Business Value Podcast. They emphasize that this Financial Due Diligence tool is imperative for buyers and sellers to understand the value of a business. An important takeaway for all business owners: the vast majority of businesses trade on a multiple of earnings, NOT revenue, so this tool will help prepare for the future. Anneka addresses the differences between audits and QofE’s and describes the three components of all QofE reports. Listen now to learn about a QofE today!
