Financial due diligence

Rely on financial due diligence to be sure

You want to know if the transaction you are planning is safe from the legal, fiscal and financial perspective. You want to be sure that financial data show a true and fair view of the company, that they have been prepared in accordance with accounting rules and good practice, and that they do not distort the financial situation. You want to avoid the risk that the assets do not represent the actual value and the financial results have not been correctly calculated. You are looking for an experienced expert who would perform an independent and in-depth due diligence and verify if data used to estimate the company’s value is true, reliable, if there are any material hidden or undeclared debts or liabilities. You are looking for a transaction advisory professional who would assess if the company can generate recurring profits and positive cash flows. You simply want to be sure that you will make a rational decision. See how we can help you.

Due diligence is more than just finances

Due diligence may also be about law, taxes, technology, environment, HR, IT and others, but the usual scope covers finance, legal and fiscal matters.

Due diligence is a helpful analysis for the valuation of the company and an important argument in negotiations. The awareness of threats and risks, but also of the opportunities and potential of the company you are planning to buy (or sell), allows you to make the right decision, properly handle negotiations, start preparing to organisational changes early, protect yourself against various risks and make the most out of every opportunity that comes your way.

We offer comprehensive due diligence services, tax structuring of enterprise acquisition and support in negotiations; we furnish legal documentation for the transaction and prepare companies for sale (we perform vendor due diligence).
