If you are planning an acquisition and you want to make sure that the information disclosed during the information and negotiation phase were accurate, our due diligence work might be of assistance to you.
In close cooperation with our tax colleagues, we can perform a (vendor or buyer) due diligence procedure in which it is determined if the financials of your company or from the company that is being acquired are correct. A vendor due diligence might protect you from discovery of errors in your financials by a potential purchaser, which might lower the price. A buyer due diligence might protect you from buying a company of which the financial information received is not completely accurate or complete.
Especially when an acquisition is done in the Dutch Caribbean or Suriname, we strongly recommend to carry out a due diligence before a share purchase agreement is signed. Insufficient quality levels of local accountants might result in a higher than usual risk that financial information obtained is not accurate.
