What is a Due Diligence Investigation

What is a Due Diligence Investigation?

There are a number of different types of investigations. Among them are due diligence investigations. However, that name might be somewhat confusing to those unfamiliar with investigative processes. One of the goals of JPR Investigations is to help you to understand just what this type of investigation entails and when it is appropriate to perform one. If you have a need for one, knowing how it affects your company and how it works is imperative. Here is a breakdown of what this type of investigation and when it should be used.

The simple definition of a due diligence is an extensive analysis of a business in order to establish a credible basis for a legal transaction. What does it mean when it is an investigation though? In very simple terms, it is when an investigation is made into a company’s financial records, management, performance, history, clients, aims and missions; it digs up details that show how the company runs. The investigation is often quite extensive, but there are a number of reasons to carry out such an investigation. This can include common scenarios such as company mergers or purchases, times when transparency and smaller details can make all of the difference. When making such a big decision that often involves large transactions, you want to be sure that you are making the right choice.

The due diligence search process is extensive. It includes a full financial investigation, background checks, surveillance, asset searches, and any other investigative process needed to see and understand how the company runs. In essence, due diligence investigations are not just one single process, but are instead a number of different investigations and processes performed together under one singular goal: to find out the true nature of a company and if there are any hidden liabilities. You can never be too careful when it comes to big company decisions.
