Forensic Accounting, Fraud Engagements & Expert Testimony
Fraud can come in many forms: employee, corporate, financial, e-commerce, and others. Unfortunately fraud can happen anywhere, and no one is immune.
Reports of fraud losses are estimated in the billions of dollars and companies increasingly are tuning to forensic accountants for help in identifying fraud and determining it’s extent.
A forensic accountants’ professional training includes the principle of skepticism which helps us identify fraud indicators, gather and maintain sufficient relevant data, and communicate our findings.
There has long been a misunderstanding surrounding the accounting profession as to the degree an accountant is responsible for detecting and reporting fraud. In many cases, the perception is that this responsibility is part of an accountant’s standard service. But performing standard accounting services – audits, reviews and compilations – does not guarantee fraud detection because these services are not necessarily designed to discover fraud. Thus, to ensure that fraud is thoroughly considered throughout the course of an assignment, you will need to engage an accountant specifically for that type of investigation.
