About the Financial Due Diligence test

Financial due diligence is crucial for organizations planning to undergo mergers and acquisitions, helping companies make informed decisions and avoid potential financial pitfalls. Hiring candidates with strong financial due diligence skills will ensure that your organization is equipped to handle these complex transactions with confidence.

This financial due diligence test evaluates a candidate's ability to determine earnings, assets, liabilities, cash flows, and the overall value of a business after taking into consideration factors including internal controls, associated risks, sensitivity, and future projections. It covers three key skill areas: business valuation; financial health, hygiene, and risk analysis; and verification of individual account heads. Candidates will be tested on their ability to determine the value of a business, identify potential financial risks, and verify the accuracy of financial statements.

Candidates who do well on this test will be able to provide valuable insights into the financial health of businesses and help you make informed decisions regarding mergers and acquisitions. Ultimately, hiring candidates with strong financial due diligence skills will help you navigate complex financial transactions with the expertise you can rely on.

What our customers are saying

TestGorilla helps me to assess engineers rapidly. Creating assessments for different positions is easy due to pre-existing templates. You can create an assessment in less than 2 minutes. The interface is intuitive and it’s easy to visualize results per assessment.

Review from G2

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
