goodwill Search for pronunciation examples


n. the benefit of a business having a good reputation under its name and regular patronage. Goodwill is not tangible like equipment, right to lease the premises or inventory of goods. It becomes important when a business is sold, since there can be an allocation in the sales price for the value of the goodwill, which is always a subjective estimate. Included in goodwill upon sale may be the right to do business without competition by the seller in the area and/or for a specified period of time. Sellers like the allocation to goodwill to be high since it is not subject to capital gains tax, while buyers prefer it to be low, because it cannot be depreciated for tax purposes like tangible assets. Goodwill also may be overestimated by a proud seller and believed by an unknowing buyer. See also: sale

    Hola soy chileno, resido en Viña del Mar, tengo a la fecha 64 años de edad, soy casado y padre de tres hijos ya todos profesionales, y fuera de casa, con sus propias familias en formación. Me desempeño como Corredor de Propiedades certificado por la Asociación de Corredores de Propiedades de Chile. Me gusta el idioma inglés y también el portugués. En Inglés gramaticalmente no tengo problemas, pero sí en los modismos y en vocabulario, es decir, tanto en forma oral como escrita, me comunico, pero hay palabras que nunca las he escuchado. Con los modismos me pasa lo mismo. Prefiero contactar con mujeres a las cuales ayudaré con mucho gusto con mi idioma español siempre que ayuden con mi aprendizaje en inglés. Las espero.
