Due Diligence may include examining the financial, legal, labour, tax, IT, and commercial situation of a company.
It involves areas such as intellectual property, real and personal property, insurance and liability.
Prior to any merger or acquisition, due diligence must be performed to determine the information about the company to be acquired is correct, accurate, and properly disclosed. In addition, due diligence can highlight any weak areas or critical issues. This may help management reach a buy/no-buy decision.
Normally the process of due diligence is carried out by a team of experts covering various areas. Areas covered may include:
- Financial, accounting and tax issues
- Information and communication Technologies (ICT)
- Human resources
- Legal issues
- Operational risk management, among others
