Determining the right buy-in price is an inexact science. But applying one consultant’s “acid test” can help you come up with the right price given your individual circumstances. This includes:
1. Net compensation should be higher during the first year of the buy-in than during the partner’ last year as an employee
2. The new partner should recoup his or her investment within five years
3. The buy-in price should be less than the cost of starting or buying your own practice
