Congress is enacting the biggest tax reform law in thirty years, one that, if signed into law, will make fundamental changes in the way you, your family and your business calculate your federal income tax bill, and the amount of federal tax you will pay. Since most of the changes will go into effect next year, there’s still a narrow window of time before year-end to soften or avoid the impact of crackdowns and to best position yourself for the tax breaks that may be heading your way. Here’s a quick rundown of last-minute moves you should think about making.

The standard financial due diligence process focuses on providing potential investors with an understanding of a company’s sustainable EBITDA, historical operating trends, working capital needs, and accounting policies and procedures.

However, access to the C-suite during fieldwork allows a financial diligence provider to gain valuable insight into other aspects of a company’s operations that may be just as important when evaluating a deal. In particular, financial diligence teams may uncover significant issues affecting post-acquisition integration and the investor’s ability to effectively monitor and effect change post-transaction.
