An auditor independently determines what should be included as business-related revenue... In this case, hockey-related revenue... An auditor isn't told what is to be included as revenue (and what is to be included as expenses)... Of course, an auditor discusses things with business owners, but in the end, it's the auditor's own independent research and expert opinion that determines what revenues and costs will be used to determine the business value... A business auditor does not simply use the numbers given to him by the business owner...

In case you're wondering how I know, a good friend of mine values companies for Price Waterhouse Coopers...
