Due Diligence:

Looking To Find Out Everything Before You Buy A Business?

Want To Know How To Do It? 

Due Diligence: The last stage in the buying process; "The Final Frontier". This is the time when you will have access to all of the company's books, records and files. You will have a pre-determined due diligence period in which to investigate the information that you have been given so far to ensure that it 's true and accurate. The due diligence phase is also the time when many prospective business buyers make the most expensive mistake of their lives!

Every Business Has Secrets.

Every seller knows certain things that they definitely don't want you to discover. The question is: Are you going to learn their secrets before or after you buy?

Due diligence is the way to discover everything before you buy. Once you close the deal it's too late! There's little or nothing that can be done about it. The consequences can be enormous.

Every task that you need to do, every step that you must take, every hazard that you must avoid is outlined for you in our complete Due Diligence Study Guide.

Here's what you will receive by email minutes after you confirm your order:

  • The Complete Due Diligence Guide and 200 Point Checklist
  • Gathering Information on The Industry and The Competition
    (starts on last page of the DD Guide)
  • The Excel  Pro Forma Income Calculator Worksheet -fully formatted 
  • Excel Tutorial 
  • Pre Due Diligence Checklist
  • Materials Required Listing
  • The Due Diligence Summary Reference Sheets 
  • The Complete Due Diligence Guide For Franchise Resales
