Due Diligence

 

Due diligence is a term used for a number of concepts involving either an investigation of a business or a person prior to signing a contract, or an act with a certain standard of care. Our team of experienced professionals has extensive knowledge to highlight key focus areas which could be potential risk elements while executing a transaction.

 

All businesses involved in an acquisition, as buyers or sellers, need to ensure that the financial information they hold is as accurate as possible, not only to prevent paying too much (or in a seller’s case receiving too little) but also to ensure that their governance and risk management objectives are met.

 

We provide both desktop Due Diligence and detailed Financial and Tax Due Diligence support. Desktop due diligence is a preliminary investigation conducted on the target company in order to evaluate the performance of the company based on the data/ information which is available in public domain. Financial and Tax Due Diligence is a detailed exercise which involves on site reviews, interviews with target management and identification of pricing issues and structuring issues on deals.
