Guidance on due diligence

Purpose of a due diligence investigation is to validate the information presented to the buyer and provides insight into (existing and latent) risks of the business to be acquired. Due diligence typically focuses on financial, tax, legal and commercial subjects.

All parties benefit from a due diligence investigation. Both the buyer and the seller. For the buyer, the due diligence primarily focuses on learning more about the business for sale. The goal of this investigation is to establish whether the business is worth the purchase price and to assess the risks involved in the acquisition. For the seller, due diligence helps to limit exposure by fulfilling its duty of disclosure.
