Practical example

Due diligence is a series of measures aimed at obtaining reliable and objective data on not only the acquisition or investment target, but also in general on the level of development of a business.

The professionals of UHY Yans-Audit have extensive experience in conducting comprehensive due diligence reviews, and because we work closely with specialists in various fields of law and finance, our clients get information that is as detailed as possible, so they can make strategic decisions, including a calculation of the fair enterprise value of a business.

Due diligence is based on a detailed analysis of a company’s internal information, statutes, and data provided by competitors and partners.


The work includes:

- review of the reliability of legal, financial and other information

- an objective assessment of the implementation of the company’s short-term and long-term strategies

- drafting of all documents from the standpoint of their compliance with legislation and internal rules

- review of the reliability of tax and financial reporting

- assessment of the company’s competitive position on the market

- identification of the existence and scope of external and/or other debt and encumbrances
