Spousal support - how to determine gross income for self-employed individual

Question Details:

I want to know if there is a guideline which specifically outlines what is considered 'gross income' and how it applies to spousal support. With regards to self employed owners of a company, what is equivalent to salary where "perks" are paid by the company, and how are they best determined. For example using the Company Attorney for personal matters, would't that be considered "compensation" for the individual and part of his/her gross income? I have several examples of similar activities that are too many to list here. Any feedback would greatly be appreciated.
