DUE DILIGENCE PROTECTS YOU AND YOUR INVESTMENTS
Due diligence is a method to inspect companies and perhaps the most important tool if you are considering buying or investing in a company, or if you want to understand how a competing business is run and whether there are deficiencies in the business.
Due diligence should always precede the important decision of buying, cooperation or an investment. Due diligence ensures that both parties know what to expect before entering into any kind of agreement, which reduces the risk of unforeseen events and the consequences of dishonest intent.
The service means that we collect information about a company’s background and history. We can, among other things, look at the board and its members – both present and former – and we identify any problems and so-called “red flags” that you should be aware of before an important decision is taken.
We do thorough background checks and take a closer look at the physical persons behind the company, and we look at both company members and the board. We then deliver a thorough report to you about our findings, where we report any risks with the company, for example, that the representatives of the company have been subject to a tax investigation, police investigation or if there may be contacts with criminal persons or organizations that might expose you to unnecessary and unexpected risks from a potential partnership.
FINANCIAL & LEGAL AUDIT
Due Diligence also includes a financial audit where we analyze the company’s accounts and verify that everything is in order. When we do a legal inspection, we review any ongoing litigation as well as any important agreements that the company may have entered into. We also check that the company pays tax, how the tax is paid, and that everything works as it should be regarding income tax, VAT and excise taxes. Here we also do a thorough examination of the company’s registered intellectual property rights.
ACCESS TO DIFFICULTY INFORMATION
Due diligence also gives you a deeper understanding of the company, its owners and board members. We provide you with information from among official and unofficial databases and other sources of information. We use this information in our risk analysis which we then present to you in a rapport.
Our professionally designed reports provide a very clear overview of a company’s history and background, which may serve as an important decision basis for future business and partnerships. Our resources are technically advanced and we can easily and quickly conduct an in-depth investigation with Due Diligence.

KNOW YOUR CLIENT (KYC)
Know your client (KYC) is a way of assessing and monitoring the customer risk. It is a way of establishing the customer’s identity, understanding the customer and assessing potential risks with a business relationship, such as the risk of money laundering. We have the experience and resources to perform a detailed KYC.
Another tool we have available to use is Worldcheck, a service linked to Thomson Reuters, where we quickly determine whether a person, company or organization is flagged for sanctions or appear in money laundering cases.
