What is Due Diligence?
A Due Diligence is a report that is performed when there are investors interested in participating in investment rounds. Due diligence is performed prior to a purchase process or a change in the management body of a company.
This is done prior to an information search process. It is usually carried out by the buyer to thoroughly evaluate the compliance, risk and contingency analysis of the company, object of sale, and its economic-financial situation. It is carried out with the objective of obtaining the necessary information to make the purchase of the company, which will vary depending on the analysis performed, both in the value of the company and in the conditions of the contract.
Types of Due Diligence
Legal Due Diligence is the most common. It is based on the Company’s research and information gathering process in order to analyze the reality of its economic, labor and financial situation.
Financial Due Diligence reviews accounting and taxation, past, present and future, in order to analyze the risks of the past and risky commitments for the future.
In a Tax Due Diligence we focus on detecting possible tax risks of the parent company in Spain or subsidiaries in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador or Portugal. We prepare opinions for the investor prior to the closing of the transaction, which reflect the relevant information and help the investor in making decisions.
We also perform audits of subsidiaries so that the parent company is aware of the accounting, tax and labor reality of its subsidiary in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador or Portugal.
This tax audit service is requested by Spanish companies with subsidiaries in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Portugal, in order to know the reality of their subsidiaries and their parent company.
In a Labor Due Diligence we review in detail all relevant aspects of the labor area of a company, to determine if it complies with its obligations and if there are no relevant labor risks derived from its activity. This is possible thanks to our knowledge of local regulations in Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Portugal.
Our purpose, as experts in audits and business consulting, is to detect legal non-compliance and quantify it. This will enable us to determine the risks arising from such non-compliance and to advise on the search for solutions.
This type of labor due diligence is widely used in corporate mergers and acquisitions. But also by the parent company when it wants to know the labor risks of its subsidiaries.
In a Labor Due Diligence we analyze:
- Compliance with social security obligations.
- Contracting modalities
- Workers’ legal representative bodies.
- Compliance with occupational risk prevention obligations.
- Labor liabilities
Due Diligence Frequently Asked Questions
The Due Diligence could last from 1 to 3 weeks if a specific section is reviewed. On the other hand, if the business consulting process is carried out for a sale and purchase transaction, it would take about 1 month to carry out the Due Diligence.
Due diligence is often essential in acquisition transactions or financing rounds. If irregularities are detected, they may affect the amount obtained. In other cases, it is advisable for the parent company to be aware of the compliance of its subsidiaries with local regulatory obligations.
