You’re ready to buy a business, but do you really know what you’re in for? While your new venture might look like a turnkey operation or one that just needs a few adjustments, you can’t always tell from appearances what might lie beneath the surface.
From contracts not executed and debt that’s owed, to litigation contingencies or unpaid taxes, unpleasant surprises could be in store if you don’t do your research before the sale. This is called due diligence, and whether you’re thinking of buying, selling or merging businesses, it’s a critical step to make sure that the transaction is all that it seems.
As CPAs, we leave no stone unturned.
