Due Dili­gence Audits

Audit of cor­po­ra­te tran­sac­tions, com­pa­ny valua­tions | Plau­si­bi­li­ty stu­dies of busi­ness plans

Due dili­gence audits usual­ly take place becau­se of com­pa­ny tran­sac­tions, cor­po­ra­te assess­ments or plau­si­bi­li­ty checks of busi­ness plans. The reques­tor of the­se tho­rough exami­na­ti­ons (in Eng­lish usual­ly shor­ten­ed to “dd”) is usual­ly the purcha­sing par­ty of the transaction.

During a due dili­gence audit, we exami­ne with all “due dili­gence” the strengths and weak­ne­s­ses of the sub­ject mat­ter inclu­ding all poten­ti­al risks. The­se ana­ly­ses are usual­ly the foun­da­ti­on for the value assess­ment of the sub­ject matter.

Becau­se of the com­ple­xi­ty of the appli­ca­ble regu­la­ti­ons, we distin­gu­ish bet­ween tax dd audits and finan­cial dd audits. The­se tasks are only car­ri­ed out by employees who are at the very least cer­ti­fied tax accoun­tants. Tech­ni­cal dd audits or legal dd audits are not exe­cu­ted by our employees, but we can recom­mend qua­li­fied spe­cia­lists from our broad net­work of part­ne­ring co-operations.
