Forensic Accounting Services
Forensic accounting involves applying accounting/auditing concepts and theories to investigate situations that involve litigation (or potential litigation) and communicating the findings to appropriate parties.
We investigate situations, probe for details, and work to uncover objective evidence. We provide written reports that communicate the findings and evidence. Expert testimony may follow.
We help investigate and aide in the discovery of Fraud. Whether it be from Misappropriation of Assets (Theft), or Misstatements of Financial Statements.
Additionally, we help advise the client in preventing fraud that normally arises from these three factors:
- Incentives and Pressures
Internal Accounting Staff
For companies that need an accounting manger, Controller, or CFO but only part-time or temporary basis, we provide the needed accounting expertise, without the heavy payroll and benefit expenses. We can assist with special projects, costing, system implementation's, or just grunt work.
There are three levels of attestation services we can provide when evaluating clients internal financial statements.
- An Audit, where we independently verify: by sight, confirmation, discussion with management, assessment of internal controls and analytical procedures, that a company’s financial reports are substantively correct. Audited financial statements will also include a statement of changes in financial data and detailed referenced footnotes outlining the companies accounting methods, policies, and certain financial data.
- A Review principally consists of our assessment of the client’s books and records by performing analytical tests, analytical procedures, and calculation of financial tests and ratios. Reviews are usually requested by banks or insurance companies
- A Compilation is where we simply compile the books and records of a client without performing any substantive procedures, independent verification or confirmation of any of a client's balance. A compilation is solely the representation of a company’s management and owners (because no verifications were preformed).
