Enter the actual current value ($) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Trade-In Value. 

Trade-In Value Formula

TIV = AV - AV*.20


  • TIV is the Trade-In Value ($)
  • AV is the actual current value ($)

To calculate Trade-In Value, subtract 20% of the true value of the asset from the true value of the asset.

How to Calculate Trade-In Value?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Trade-In Value.

  1. First, determine the actual current value ($). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = TIV = AV – AV*.20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Trade-In Value.
  4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
