Financial Due Diligence
When a company is up for sale or selling a part of itself, financial due diligence provides a detailed look into its financial health for potential buyers. This thorough check ensures the consistency of company accounts, giving a clear view of assets, liabilities, and any hidden tax risks. As investments, mergers, and acquisitions offer promising returns, it’s vital to spot any major risks before finalizing the deal.
With our expertise, we can streamline this assessment, offering in-depth financial due diligence to highlight value drivers, refine deal structures, and guard against potential pitfalls, helping you make informed decisions.
Government and Cooperative Audits
Government or cooperative audits demand special licensing by the Ministry of Finance Malaysia. These kinds of audits also require special skills due to the unique audit deliverables and needs.
In other words, an auditor’s role is to ensure no funny business is happening. Because the government wants to make sure cooperative bodies have fair reporting standards. As well as most cooperatives are required to conduct an annual audit.
