Financial Due Diligence
With correct, comprehensive and timely information, it’s easy to make wise decisions. Carrying out carefully planned due diligence will increase the likelihood of this happening.
The due diligence exercise can be carried out by both sides, e.g. vendor and buyer. Clearly, each party will have its own objectives, and the professional carrying out the due diligence exercise may have limited access to the required data (historical and forecasted). However, what’s more important is the ability of the professional to ask the right questions, source the essential data, and skills to analyse the relevant results.
Although due diligence is an important practice that is undertaken to determine the viability of a transaction, it’s often poorly planned and executed. Consequently, when done incorrectly, it can cost individuals and companies valuable time and resources. Fortunately, our team of accountants are skilled and experienced in planning and performing research and analyzing the findings and providing recommendations in an easy to understand format. Our due diligence report will contain:
- a summary of our findings
- outline of the important issues identified from the due diligence process (including pertinent financial and operational data and risk analysis)
- post-decision considerations
- recommendations for further action
With the above information to hand, you’ll have the relevant information to make decisions right for you and your business.
