Foreign investors doing business in Singapore use due diligence procedures on the companies they are about to conclude different transactions with. Company due diligence implies the process of evaluating a business from various points of view. Considering the expansion of the mergers and acquisitions market and the number of Singapore companies buying other businesses, company due diligence in the city-state has started to become a necessity for entrepreneurs.
With a vast experience in due diligence procedures, our specialists in company formation in Singapore can help clients with the company verification proceedings.
Depending on the client’s needs our local experts can conduct the following company due diligence proceedings:
The verification of a Singapore company usually begins with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) which will provide information about the shareholders and the company’s financial situation. Inquiries with ACRA can be performed by specialists or by the interested party.
Company due diligence can imply an extensive search on a business which means a longer period of time will be required. Also, when it comes to complex transactions, the procedure will require more resources and complicated searches. Our Singapore representatives can provide clients with customized company due diligence services in order to cover all aspects such procedures imply.
With respect to financial due diligence, our agents can verify a company’s records, accounting system and its audited financial statements. Legal due diligence, on the other hand, implies a thorough verification of the company’s situation with respect to liabilities towards thirds parties or if the entity is involved in any litigation. Commercial due diligence will focus on the products and services the company offers.
