Every business has something in common. The current generation of management will one day need to be replaced. Every business needs to deal with the reality that they have to plan for succession. Most businesses in Australia are small businesses, generally family operated and need to plan for the future. Systems are required to be implemented as early as possible to facilitate a succession plan whether the business is to pass onto a relative, employees or be sold.


Our team of professionals are dedicated to the cause of providing best possible outcomes for business owners and their intended successor(s). We value people, family, confidentiality and work hard to make this process easy to navigate for our clients.


Due diligence is the analysis of financial information so that a particular set of questions about a business can be understood. Due diligence is usually a process by which we gain an understanding of the financial information presented to us, and use that understanding to prove various aspects of the business.


Due diligence is usually combined with a business valuation. In this combination we use the financial statements, business activity statements, leases, and any other financial information to analyse the correct value for the business.
