Due Diligence

The due diligence forms an integral part of the acquisition process, giving the acquirer peace of mind in the investment process. The acquisition due diligence will identify the risk areas and determine factors that are going to affect the price of the transaction.

Accensis also provides a vendor due diligence for owners who are in the process of selling the business, this vendor due diligence will similarly help identify risk areas in the business and the effects on the price, but by pre-empting the identification of risk areas you will be to make the necessary decisions to handle the outcomes.
