Business Due Diligence in Brazil

due diligence in brazil

When you invest in a business, before you actually make your purchase, the seller will give you a time of due diligence. This is the time in which you get complete access to their business, so you can investigate their finances, sales, employees, and whatever else you need to find out in order to verify your purchase would be a good one. Having a Brazilian broker to help you examine the various assets of the company will help you make the most of your time. They can save you from excess travel expenses by gathering the information for you and delivering it all as one easy to understand package.

Decision making cannot simply be done off the cuff, it needs to have in-depth information behind it, in order to back up every single thought process heading into the final decision. This kind of thinking needs to be adapted to every single decision that has a weight of importance about it, not only in terms of individual decisions, but also where business is concerned also.

In the business world, if you make one wrong move, you run the risk of causing irreparable damage, or at least making a costly decision in the best case scenario. It is for this reason that if you are considering making a business decision, especially one that involves a large sum of money, or any information sharing, that you employ the skills and knowledge of a specialized due diligence service, to give you access to the information you need in Brazil.

What is Due Diligence?

You’ve probably heard the saying ‘working with due diligence’ and it basically means being careful, and gathering all the information you need before you make a move. When it comes to business, especially if you are considering merging or doing business with another company, you need to look into acquisition due diligence, to protect every single part of your daily work. Working without the expertise of a due diligence service in Brazil means that you are working in the dark, literally with your eyes closed, and if you are making big decisions, you could run the risk of losing big money doing business in Brazil.

Put simply, due diligence is a form of check that is done before employment with an individual, or before working with another company in Brazil, to check out details about their history and the work they have done. This can cover a range of different areas in Brazil, but it gives you the information you need to check that you are making a sensible decision for your business future in Brazil.

Any joint venture in Brazil should include a due diligence report before jumping into the fire, because this is some kind of peace of mind, insurance in many ways. A due diligence report can also be used to bring to the fore details about the way a company manages its finances or employment, about its performance in the past, and also about its history and clients, to inform your final decision in a much more thorough way.

We can negotiate the due diligence period

For obvious reasons, business owners normally try to keep the due diligence period as short as possible. They would rather be done with the deal as sooner rather than later in order to prevent you from finding any reason to lower your offering price or walking away altogether. An experienced broker or business attorney in Brazil can help you negotiate a longer period, so that your evaluation will be thorough and you won’t miss any important problems. Our brokers can make sure:

  • Due Diligence is an Appropriate Length
  • Access to All Aspects of the Business are Granted
  • Both Owner and Staff Cooperate

With so many important aspects to investigate during your period of due diligence, it makes sense to have more than one person going through details. Our brokers can make sure you don’t miss a detail and that you focus on what’s most important during this time. When traveling from the US to Brazil and back, it is easy to lose track of crucial information and to miss details you will need to study. We will make sure you consider aspects that:

  • Affect Value
  • Cause Doubt
  • Deserve a Second Look
  • Impact the Future of the Business
