Financial due diligence reports
Let the buyer beware
Caveat emptor, or “let the buyer beware” is one of the principles upon which our legal system in the UK is built. In other words, the onus is on you as the buyer to be clear about what you are buying. Buying a business or merging companies is a complicated process, fraught with potential dangers, and you need to keep a clear commercial head throughout; you need to beware. And the way to do that is Due Diligence.
Our Financial Due Diligence report allows you to get behind the numbers on the balance sheet and unearth any issues that impact upon the financial viability of your target. It gives you the confidence to make an informed decision based upon a full, up to date disclosure of the financial affairs of your proposed merger, partnership or purchase.
The benefits of a due diligence report go beyond the simple requirement to understand what you are buying. Our report will allow you to:
- Assess the true financial viability of your proposed venture
- Understand the financial risks of your project
- Avoid inheriting fraud or fraud risk
- Uncover “off balance-sheet” issues
- Allow you to negotiate the deal more effectively
- Inform your finance structuring options
