Financial Due Diligence

Our financial due diligence reports provide an independent assessment of target businesses which identify both ‘positives’ and ‘negatives’.


The review involves in-depth analysis and validation of financial information. It concludes with a report – not an excessively long report, which delivers all facts picked up during our review – but a balanced document including the key facts and our independent opinions.

We have a wealth of due diligence experience at Harlands which is derived from working for private equity and venture capital firms, banks, high net worth individuals, entrepreneurs, and other clients.

Our due diligence work is structured so that the client is constantly notified of key developments, so that deals can be reviewed and if necessary restructured at an early stage. Potential ‘deal-breakers’ are always raised as early as possible.  We aim to work as part of a team with our client and their partners – we believe that three way communications is fundamental to completing a deal at the right price.
