It really depends on the business. Professional practice such as medical, dental, veterinary often have 60%-80% of total value allocated to goodwill. I recommend that you initially speak with a business broker knowledgeable about the type of business that you are considering. Try http://www.bbpinc.com/industryexpert.asp to find an expert for your type of business. Then also confer with your tax professional.

Agree with Joe. You really want to confer with you tax advisor who will have the benefit of your entire tax picture. Generally, but not in all cases, the buyer will want to allocate as much value as is reasonable under the circumstances to the assets with the most rapid depreciation schedules under the tax laws.

As a busines broker, It is refreshing to hear your concern about this, because many buyers neglect this and wind up paying unecessary taxes. We have seen situations where up to 10% of the purchase price can be saved with the proper strategy. Each situation is different, and there is no canned answer. You should absolutely go to an accountant that specializes in buying and selling businesses.

I strongly recommend you consult with your accountant/CPA. At least become aware of the benefits regarding paying sales tax on assets now and the advantage of the probability of higher amounts through depreciation. Become aware of the items in the Allocation that are depreciable.
