As the world moves increasingly online, with financial transactions more likely to be conducted remotely, the opportunity for technological crime has never been greater. Financial investigations which involve mining existing records to uncover or recover lost or deliberately altered transactions, can help protect your business and also your personal position when financial irregularities arise.
When suspicions of financial crime occur, you need an expert who can dedicate the time to scrutinising the minutiae which may be overlooked in a standard financial review. This is where the skills of a forensic accountant can be extremely valuable.
A forensic accountant can provide the valuable insight and crucial evidence you need if you are involved in any of the following types of litigation action:
- Bankruptcy proceedings
- Allegations of fraud
- Shareholder dispute
If you suspect another party of deliberately hiding assets, syphoning off company profits, concealing an asset’s true valuation, or otherwise partaking in financially criminal activities, a forensic accountant could provide the legally binding evidence you need to build a solid case.
The information gathered by an experienced forensic accountant can often be compiled into a fully evidenced report which is admissible in court. Most forensic accountants will also be able to stand in court to provide expert testimony.
