How long is a typical time for due diligence to take place once an offer has been accepted?

  1. Again size matters - For small, single location businesses with straightforward accounting and uncomplicated inventory, due diligence can last anywhere from thirty to forty-five days. If the business has multiple locations and multiple sets of financial records, due diligence can run forty-five to sixty days. For medium-sized companies with dozens of employees due diligence can run anywhere from forty-five to ninety days.
