What is a Due Diligence?
A Due Diligence is a report carried out when there are investors interested in attending investment rounds. Due Diligence is carried out before a purchase process or a change in a company’s management body.
A Due Diligence is an information search process. The purchaser usually carries out a due diligence to assess the performance, risk analysis, contingencies of the company, object of sale and economic and financial situation thoroughly. It is done in order to obtain accurate information to make the purchase of the company, which will vary according to the analysis made, both in its value and contract conditions.
Types of Due Diligence
There are different types of Due Diligence. In UR Global, we explain you the different types and in which countries we carry out them. We offer Due Diligence in Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Portugal and Chile.
Legal Due Diligence is the most common. It is based on research process and data collection of the Company in order to analyze reality of its economic, labor and financial situation.
Financial Due Diligence reviews the past, present and future accounting and taxation by analyzing the non-taking of risks of the past or risky commitments in the future.
In a tax due diligence, we focus on detecting potential tax risks that the parent has in Spain or the subsidiaries in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile or Portugal. We issue opinions for the investor before the closing of the transaction, which reflect relevant information and help the investor in decision-making.
We also carry out audits in the subsidiaries so that the parent knows the accounting, tax and labor reality of the subsidiaries in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile or Portugal.
In a labor Due Diligence, we review all relevant aspects of a company’s work area in detail to determine if this company fulfils its obligations and there are no relevant occupational risks derived from its activity. This is possible due to our knowledge of local regulations in Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Portugal.
Our purpose, as experts in audits and business consultancy, is to detect legal breaches and quantify them. This will make it possible to determine the risks derived from those breaches and advice in the search for solutions.
This kind of labor Due Diligence is very used in corporate sales transactions or business mergers, also on the part of the parent when it wants to know the occupational risks of its subsidiaries.
In a labor Due Diligence, we analyze:
- Fulfilment of the obligations with respect to social security
- Contract modalities
- Legal representation bodies of workers
- Fulfilment of the obligations with respect to occupational risk prevention
- Labor liabilities
Frequently Asked Questions on Due Diligence
Due Diligence could take between 1 or 3 weeks if a specific section is reviewed. Instead, if the business consultancy process were carried out for a sale and purchase transaction, about 1 month would be required to carry out the Due Diligence.
The development of a due Diligence is often essential in purchase transactions or financing rounds. If irregularities are detected, they can affect the amount obtained. In other cases, it is recommended that the parent fulfill the obligations of local regulations in its subsidiaries.
