We've been doing a bit of work in the due diligence area for a few years now.
It's for people looking to buy a business - sometimes it's a franchise and other times a management buyout or a standalone situation, and sometimes it's a start from scratch job.
We love this kind of work - it's about building a future for the potential purchaser and their family.
Interestingly there is no one size fits all - each situation needs to be looked at on its own merits. Yes, we apply similar tests to check the business out, but each situation is different.
It's a bit like buying a car - you look under the bonnet.
We do the same with a business - we look under the bonnet to make sure it's fit for purpose.
It's great to be involved and to meet the wonderful people we help.
