Financial Due Diligence
Delivering comprehensive Financial Due Diligence services is a significant part of our portfolio at Consilium Chartered Accountants, now exceeding £200m in value. We work extensively with investors, Private Equity firms, banks, individuals and businesses in Scotland and UK-wide on financial and taxation due diligence projects across a broad range of industry sectors.
We plan our work thoroughly, ensure it is undertaken efficiently focusing on the key risks of the target business. Consilium’s reports are tailored to the needs of our clients and we ensure, through regular communication, that any issues are proactively identified and resolved.
Our job is to make sure clients know every detail of a business, the realities of its operations and how they can mitigate any risks in their investment decision. At Consilium we work hand in hand with clients, taking a partnership approach which means we can advise and support them from the very first discussion about an acquisition or investment.
Take a look at our track record providing Financial Due Diligence services to our clients.
Financial due diligence and business transaction support
Consilium Chartered Accountants are commissioned to undertake financial due diligence as part of:
- Pre-purchase due diligence
- Pre-lending assessments
- Vendor pre-sale due diligence
- Pre-investment due diligence.
Business valuation and transaction support services
Financial due diligence starts with agreeing and outlining a scope of work that is tailored on a business by business basis. Typically, the scope would require that Consilium provide an analysis of the historical performance and future projections, along with considering the financial reporting environment, working capital, cashflow and liabilities of the target business.
By instructing financial due diligence from Consilium a purchaser or investor can consider whether the risk profile, structure and value of investment are appropriate before concluding a transaction.
Led by our Corporate Finance team, we pride ourselves on attention to detail and the extensive knowledge and expertise of our senior partners. As a comprehensive Accounting, Audit and Tax advisory firm, we can call on the expertise and insight of all departments to ensure business transactions are completed as efficiently as possible.
Supporting buyers and sellers with valuation advisory services
At Consilium we provide financial due diligence services on both the buy and sell sides of a transaction. Vendors work with us to ensure they get the same perspective on their business as a prospective buyer does.
Consequently, our clients can take remedial action on areas of business weakness before it impacts negatively on a valuation or subsequent negotiations, helping to maximise the value of their business and smooth out the sale or investment process.
