Financial Due Diligence

For mergers, acquisitions and investments, sound financial due diligence is the bedrock of informed decision making.  We specialise in providing clients with tailored due diligence services to meet the unique needs of each transaction and the diverse needs of our clients.

Our team has significant transaction and sector experience across a wide range of sectors in both the UK and internationally. We have “Big 4” experience and significant experience working with private equity and banks on SME transactions.

We pride ourselves by offering a due diligence service that goes beyond the numbers:

  • Commercial focus: We focus on the commercial aspects of the deal and key value drivers, providing insights and recommendations to mitigate risk exposure and uncover opportunities. We will highlight opportunities and upsides and not just focus on the downsides
  • Tailored solutions: We understand that each transaction is unique. Our approach is flexible and adaptable, ensuring that our due diligence services are specifically tailored to address the intricacies of each deal.  We work closely with our clients to adapt our work as required
  • Timely “no surprises” approach: We do what needs to be done to meet your transaction timetable and actively communicate key issues along the way so there are no surprises when we issue our report
  • Post deal support: As part of the due diligence service, we can also advise on the financial and tax aspects of the sale and purchase agreement and provide assistance with completion accounts and earnout mechanisms

We also work closely with our tax and VAT specialists to ensure we provide a seamless due diligence service which also covers corporation tax, employment tax and VAT risks. We can also leverage our Kreston network to assist with cross-border transactions.
