IRONING OUT THE COMPLEXITIES AND GETTING SOME PEACE OF MIND

When you’re buying or investing in a business, it can be a complicated process. Most importantly, you typically want to be sure of three things: 1) You’re buying the business for the right price, 2) you’re getting exactly what you pay for and 3) there’ll be no nasty surprises. You want a clear understanding of what you’re working with from day one. Before the keys even touch your hands.

When you’re selling a business, you want to know that you’re fully prepared for the rigours of due diligence from another party. That means you may want an independent report on the business in order to stay in control and make the ultimate disposal process less painful. Or you may want a review of specific numbers, or simply an experienced sounding board.

You want to know if there are any risks. And you want to know you’re making the right decision. That’s where our highly experienced Transaction Services specialists can help.

DUE DILIGENCE ISN’T A TICK BOX EXERCISE

Some people may think of due diligence as simply a tick in the box. That’s not the case – every transaction is different, and we flex our approach and scope accordingly. We’ll tell you what we really think about your transaction, which is something a lot of accountancy firms are scared to do. We will structure findings and advice in a clear way, too, using insightful analysis to support our recommendations.

SOUND ADVICE, NO SURPRISES

We’ll stay in touch throughout the due diligence process, so there’ll be no surprises when it comes to reading our report. We’ll make the report easy to follow and we’ll talk you through our findings and advice based on our years of transactions experience.

We can provide advice on the sale and purchase agreement and we also offer support on the compilation and review of completion accounts, helping you to see your transaction through to the end.
