Negative Goodwill(redirected from Negative Good-Will)
Income, perhaps even a profit, that comes from the sale of an asset at less than its fair market value. Negative goodwill is most common during a distressed sale, in which one must raise cash immediately to pay some liability. The buyer records the difference between the negative goodwill and the fair market value as a gain on the balance sheet.
