Financial Due Diligence
Quality of earnings
Are you considering selling your business? Buyers typically want to see three to five years of complete financial statements and records. We can help you prepare these documents and put together a quality of earnings report. In addition to confirming the overall health of your company, these records also provide performance history insights and help forecast future success.
Optimizing your after-tax profits
Are you confident that you have a tax-efficient structure in place? As a key step in the transaction process, this will help maximize your after-tax profits and lead to a successful transaction. After conducting a thorough analysis, you may decide that a restructure is warranted to simplify or streamline the transaction. There are a few options to consider including reorganizations, management equity plans, Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) and family wealth transfers.
Tax Due Diligence
