Due Diligence Advisory Services

A holistic view of true business value

A Tailored Approach to Due Diligence Advisory

Whether you are the buyer or the seller, a successful transaction relies on an accurate, holistic view of the business and its value. Going far beyond the scope of a traditional Quality of Earnings analysis, our approach to due diligence is built on an analytical view of the entire business, comprising the full spectrum of financial, tax, accounting, operational, IT, HR and insurance considerations. 

The resulting view helps to understand the true value of the business more accurately, while our deal analytics portal gives you full visibility into our analysis and its implications. This clarity helps you move faster and with greater confidence over the full transaction lifecycle. 

In delivering our analysis, we focus on:

  • Holistic vision. Synthesizing due diligence and execution workstreams for a cohesive, comprehensive view of the target business (buy-side or sell-side).
  • Speed to insight. Advanced analytics flag data trends or outliers that may indicate hidden value or areas of risk.
  • Data in context. With analytics-trained teams, nothing is lost in translation: easy-to-understand data visualizations help make a case to key stakeholders — whether you’re demonstrating uncovered value or planning for integration challenges. 
  • Deal perspective. BDO’s deal advisors bring technical knowledge of due diligence and execution, deep M&A experience, and sector-specific insights to provide you with intelligence that’s anchored in analytics and spans the entire deal lifecycle. 


When approaching financial due diligence, we assess working capital components and identify risks, disclosures and other negotiation points that affect purchase price.

With our due diligence tax and financial services, BDO helps optimize your tax position and manages compliance obligations through professional advice across all tax areas delivered via one team.

We conduct a holistic HR-focused due diligence assessment to incorporate HR elements in the purchase price and sale agreement while reducing integration surprises.

In our Operation Due Diligence Consulting, we assess synergy and value creation opportunities, as well as operational and integration risks across the enterprise – including go-to-market, operations, supply chain, back-office and culture – to help validate the deal thesis, support the valuation model and prepare for post-diligence integration and value creation planning and execution.

BDO evaluates the resilience, reliability, scalability and security of the current IT platform, assesses if it will support the future business, and identifies remediation needs.
