Due diligence

Carrying out due diligence is a key part of the mergers and acquisition process, whether you’re investing, lending, buying a business or priming one for sale.

Flexible due diligence reporting for acquirers, investors and banks.

Our extensive experience performing due diligence assignments across multiple industries means we can offer you valuable insight to facilitate informed business decisions. Our reports are tailored for each assignment and highlight key findings, present financial analysis, and, importantly, provide you with our expert opinion. They’re detailed but concise and get to the key answers early to give you peace of mind without the need to pore over multiple pages of intricate financial analysis. 


Why should you carry out due diligence?

  • Gain a detailed understanding of the business and the historic financial performance
  • Recognise key profit or growth drivers and evaluate future projections
  • Understand any external issues and their impact on the business
  • Identification of any financial and commercial risks
  • Improve transparency of a deal structure
  • Gain assurance over the business valuation


By exercising careful attention, we are adept at acquiring information from targets and identifying potential transaction obstacles and business issues. Our reports are concise and easy to understand so that you can reach your conclusions as soon as possible.

Buzzacott assisted us on our acquisition of Douglas & Gordon Estate Agents. With a relatively short timetable they were able to react quickly and got the work done to a high standard. A great outcome was achieved and they were a pleasure to work with.
