Due Diligence and Audit Preparation
There’s no question that due diligence reviews and audits are critical processes. They are also intimidating. So much is riding on them!
If the information you provide isn’t correct or complete you might lose a potential investor. You might be slapped with a negative audit opinion. That’s not good for fundraising.
At the same time, due diligence processes are the worst, and audits are a close second. They’re stressful, time consuming and involve endless lists of questions and demands. It isn’t unusual to not even understand what you’re being asked for. You might discover that documents and schedules are missing. Replacing or creating them can take hours, days or weeks.
Naturally, you’re doing all this while also trying to run your actual business.
