Due diligence is the verification of all information given to a company by any prospective business associate. Many companies today recognize that confirming the integrity of potential business partners, associates, and clients is similar to buying an insurance policy for liability—it is a necessity. This is a key component in any business venture. If you do not know the company’s history, executives and employees, or their current and previous financial status, then you should not be doing business them.
The due diligence process includes many steps such as:
- A complete and comprehensive credibility assessment of the company and its key executives
- A check of all county and federal records including but not limited to civil, criminal, bankruptcy, and liens and judgements records
- Database searches for any information printed publicly, (e.g., books, magazines, newspapers, congressional hearings, crime commission reports, online reviews, etc.), about the company and its executives
- Asset checks to determine if the company is being complete and honest as to their current and future worth
