Due Diligence

Due diligence is the process of systematically researching and verifying the accuracy of a statement. Due diligence describes the degree of effort required by law or industry standard.

  • Is there a customer concentration issue
  • Industry trends and pricing norms for this type of business
  • Should I buy stock or assets in the business
  • How do I optimize my tax position
  • And much more…………………….
