- About KroeseWevers
A due diligence will show you the current position of your business in an objective and independent manner. The advisers of KroeseWevers Corporate Finance will critically assess the actual situation of the (target) company. The due diligence will reveal the risks in all relevant business units and will assist you in taking well-informed decisions about the acquisition or sale of a company.
With a merger, acquisition or selling process you want to know the actual situation of a company. A due diligence provides detailed insight of the actual situation. It puts all relevant facts on the table and makes the opportunities and risks clear to all those involved. A due diligence is the basis for the decision whether or not to proceed with an acquisition, or to start with a selling process.
Based on our expertise, we can carry out various due diligences for you. Including:
Tax due diligence
Financial due diligence
Vendor due diligence
Exit readiness scan
You and your stakeholders wish to know exactly what the situation is of the company that you wish to acquire and you need transparent communication on this matter. In a financial due diligence we work from various angles and will present you a clear picture of the (target) company. Our procedures includes the following financial aspects:
We will adjust the scope of the due diligence to your transaction rationale and objectives.
The tax position varies per company. This creates opportunities in case of an acquisition but may also result in unexpected risks. We identify the opportunities and risks by an assessment of the tax structure and history of the company. Our tax audit areas include: corporation tax, payroll tax, VAT, income tax, transfer tax and international tax aspects.
Do you want to sell your company or companies? In that case we can perform a vendor assistance before the sale. This will increase the rate of success of the selling process; it usually results in a higher price and improves the conditions of the transaction. Through a vendor assistance we offer you a solid preparation for your sale. What exactly are you selling and is the legal, tax and financial structure of the company prepared for this? Are your (financial) data satisfactory for the due diligence to be executed by the acquiring party? What is the financial position of the company to be sold? Do you have to restructure certain (business) activities, internal processes or reports before the sale? A vendor assistance will provide you concrete advice in the subareas that we assess.
Would you like to provide a reliable and transparent report about the company to prospective buyers? We can document our findings for you in a vendor due diligence report. This will improve the quality of indicative offers of prospective buyers and eventually speed up the selling process.
Do you have plans to sell a company? Selling your company starts with the question: is my business ready for sale? Some three to five years before the actual sale, you can already start with preparing your company for your future ‘exit’. With the exit readiness scan of KroeseWevers we can assess your company. This assessment provides insight into any areas for development for a selling process so that you are prepared for a due diligence of potential buyers.
