2013 is a good year to buy a business. What is the first thing you do when you want to buy a business? Due diligence. Due diligence is defined by Webster's Dictionary as research and analysis of a company or organization done in preparation for a business transaction. Some people, like Mit Romney, are in the business of buying and selling businesses. These people know what questions to ask. We like to help the rest of you who are buying a business for the first time.
Due diligence for a prospective business purchase looks at:
- Corporate structure;
- Financial statements, profit & loss reports, debts and assets;
- Employment problems and possibilities;
- Intellectual property;
- Real estate and leases;
- Marketing resources
