2020 Cost of Doing Business Survey

It’s that time of year again – time for the Northeast Equipment Dealers Association (NEDA) Cost of Doing Business Survey (CODB) compilation.
It is imperative that our organization continue this annual study/project:  

  • Participants can compare their financial performance to that of all dealers (regardless of lines or manufacturers represented);
  • Dealers/Members need this information to assist in the valuation process of their businesses for estate planning, buy/sell agreements, sales, merger/consolidation purposes;
  • The CODB Report will include benchmarks in the survey so dealership goals and budgets can be established for future years;
  • As your trade association we established the tradition of generating this type of survey so that trends in business can be established and information can be gleaned that will help dealers improve financial performance in future years.

The completed survey results will be priced as follows:

  • Member/Dealers who submit financials – FREE!!
  • Members who do not submit financial information – $300 per survey.
  • Nonmembers who do not submit financial information – $500 per survey.
