It also doesn’t hurt to have the advice of a knowledgeable friend. By working smarter, and letting tech do the repetitive heavy-lifting, you’ll free your time, and get better data with less effort.

Due Diligence & Business Purchase

When buying a business, you might consider performing the due diligence work by yourself. However, for more most transactions it is worth considering a more formal approach and having a due diligence team with expertise in such areas as the law and accounting to support you.

The team at KSR Partners has the experience to assist you in assessing the financial, commercial and legal risks associated with your business purchase, including:

  • reviewing the business accounting records and performance
  • review financial management practices
  • providing you with professional advice on the business’ viability and suitability
  • identifying existing risks and liabilities.

The due diligence review process generally takes place before you enter into a formal contract of sale. If this process is not performed prior to the transaction you can risk over paying for a business with potential for unexpected issues that could require significant expenditure to rectify.

Our team can assist you with the due diligence process so that you are protected in your purchase of the business.
