Transaction support

We carry out financial due diligence investigations for leading banks, private equity houses, trade buyers and private investors. We produce reports that get to the heart of the financial issues, detailing all of the potential upsides and pitfalls that affect a valuation.

We’re able to do this because our partners and senior managers take a hands-on role, rather than delegating work to junior staff using checklists.

In addition to the commercial aspects, we highlight tax risks that might arise and identify ways to minimise those risks. We can also help with post-transaction compliance issues.

We specialise in working with businesses with revenues of up to £100m. We understand how these smaller concerns work – the tax issues they face, and the way that their simpler processes, smaller accounting teams and closer management involvement can reduce some risks and increase others.

We work flexibly, producing full, formal reports for the big banks, as well as quick verbal/email reports for individuals investing in sectors they’re familiar with.

We also provide ad hoc transaction support services, including tax advisory, financial modelling and assistance to vendors and management throughout the sale process.
