Financial and Tax Due Diligence

Whether you’re buying or selling a business, due diligence is likely to emerge as a key step of the transaction process from its infancy through to completion. It’s one of the most important processes in an M&A deal as it can reduce your risk, as a buyer, through confirming the accuracy of the seller’s claims.


Without doubt, the success of an acquisition to an acquirer, be it a corporate or financial investor, can be significantly influenced by the extent and quality of the due diligence undertaken. Financial due diligence is a key aspect of the overall investigation into the target.
