Buying a business is a major commitment and can be a daunting process. Due diligence is a process of discovery that can help you ensure that the business is what you want before buying it. Both buyers and sellers can benefit from the process before acquisition and should take the time to learn what risks are involved.

You will learn the importance of due diligence for both parties and will consider the risks involved in buying or selling a business, and what you can do to minimise these.
