Get the whole story with consulting firm KPMG (http://www.kpmg.ca) Canada's article "An Overview to Acquisitions and Due Diligence." KPMG consultants command big bucks in the marketplace--usually far more than most entrepreneurial businesses can afford--but at this well-organized site, you'll get the full benefit of KPMG's experience about the how-to of due diligence, from when to start the process (the earlier the better, say experts at KPMG) to how much due diligence is enough. And you'll even get to see KPMG's four-stage model for acquisition due diligence.
