The Business Profile and Due Diligence Package

Usually comprised of 60-120 pages, and presented in an email-friendly PDF format, your Business Profile Document and Due Diligence Package contains every piece of information a potential buyer, bank, or accountant, would like to know including:

•Legal documents
•Balanced financials
•ROI analysis
•Marketplace review
•High-resolution photos
•Professional layout and design

Insight from Rod Nuttall
Former National Executive Manager
Commonwealth Bank of Australia
“Gaining finance approval in business purchase proposals has its challenges. It is essential that full financial disclosure is provided otherwise financiers do not feel confident that they hold a true position. Generally this means a lack of forthcoming finance approval. Hence a full and clearly articulated performance of the business is essential. In my experience I can suggest that Finn Business Sales provide business profiles that are not only essential information memorandum to provide disclosure suitable for the buyer to present to their proposed financier. Without these business profiles, the process of gaining finance approval can be very restrictive and therefore present the prospect with an experience that may discourage them fulfilling their purchase. Hence to provide your existing business with the best possible chance of sale then I recommend a discussion with Finn Business Sales to ascertain your business profile.”
