Preparing your Dealership for Financial & Tax Due Diligence

This event has already occurred. View Recording Download Slides

Event Overview

As dealer consolidation continues, chances are many dealers will become a buyer or seller in the near future. When purchasing a dealership, whether an asset or stock transaction, buyers will need to administer a thorough review of the company to ensure they know exactly what they are buying – this process is commonly referred to as “due diligence.” Likewise, many sellers of automotive assets are small owner-operators not typically experienced with a transaction process. So that buyers and sellers may navigate such complexities with ease, DHG offers financial and tax due diligence services to help clients overcome the common issues associated with any given transaction.

Join DHG Dealerships on April 22nd for an encompassing session covering several key areas in relation to how to prepare your dealership for financial and tax due diligence.

Topics covered include:

  • Current Accounting Classifications
  • People and Pay Plans
  • Facilities and Rent
  • Historical Balance Sheet Analysis
  • Stock Purchase Agreement
  • And more!
