Online Business Due Diligence

The purchase of every website business involves the process of due diligence. This process is taken up by the buyer once the price of sale has been negotiated and the Letter Of Intent has been drawn.

Due Diligence refers to a process where the buyer investigates the performance of the business carefully. In this process, the buyer evaluates the performance of the company and its assets put up for purchase. The objective of due diligence is to create a forum where the buyer and the seller can communicate in an organized manner. Any legal, financial or business related information can be exchanged in this forum by the seller and the buyer so the latter can determine the accuracy and authenticity of the business data put forth by the seller. The process of due diligence is said to be complete once the buyer has reviewed all aspects of the business and has signed the purchase agreement.

There are a few facts the online business sellers should keep in mind:

  • Due diligence is an integral part of any sale and it does not imply that the buyer does not trust you or your data.
  • This process is important to ensure the terms and business data put forward by the seller during the purchase process is accurate and credible. Any wrong information documented noted during the process of due diligence may lead to the break of trust between both the parties involved.
  • This is a process that occurs just before the sale is completed. Ensuring all the records and documents are ready well beforehand will reduce the time taken to complete the process of due diligence.
