Due diligence

Amongst all the build-up and excitement of buying a business, it is important to objectively assess the financial performance and position of the business prior to making an unconditional offer.

The process of financial due diligence can be a complex process:

  • Have you asked the right questions? How would you know?
  • Do you have enough information to provide comfort that the results are not inflated and are sustainable?
  • Have you considered the impact of the existing owner’s exit needs and taken them into account?
  • Are you able to access information in an efficient timeframe?

At Moore Stephens Markhams we know all the right questions to ask and how to decipher answers, what information and records to sight and analyse, and the right people to speak to.

Our due diligence specialists have the forensic understanding and necessary business acumen to create comprehensive financial reports that identify the risks and opportunities attached to any business. Our extensive analysis covers financial performance, position, commentary on the business’s controls and systems. We can also create a personalised package tailored to your transaction requirements.

And if you are undertaking your own due diligence, we can guide you in any areas you are unfamiliar with.

Let us take a look before you leap.
