Forensic Accounting

Whether it’s as a preventative measure or because the worst-case scenario has played out, our forensic accounting team can get to the bottom of it – and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

We have an enviable mix of forensic accountants, retired police detectives, and forensic scientists who specialise in investigating key areas of corporate fraud and financial investigations – issues such as internal audits, IT audits, tax fraud, VAT fraud, and insolvency.

How our fraud and forensic accounting services can help you

  • Fraud investigations: We find evidence to show what (and how it) happened, advise on what corrective action you can take, and help you reduce the chances of it happening again.
  • Asset recovery: We assess the net worth of individuals and organisations; this can help the legal process of freezing perpetrators’ assets to maximise recovery of money lost in fraud cases.
  • Loss of Profit claims: Our forensic accountants can produce Loss of Profit claims for businesses who have suffered interruptions – be it from fire, flood or other problems.
  • Systems assessments: Our forensic accountants, often in tandem with fraud investigators, review and report on system weaknesses. We can also help you to prepare all necessary fraud, bribery and anti-money laundering policies.
  • Defence against employee loss of earnings claims: We can combine the investigation of employees’ claims with work to reduce the compensation being claimed for loss of earnings or damages. We’ll provide the surveillance teams and equipment.
  • Training: We can train your staff on all aspects of fraud awareness and anti-money laundering. We provide a comprehensive training package on many enforcement subjects, including court room skills and investigative interviewing.
  • Project management: We have great experience project-managing fraud enquiries, combining the skills of in-house and external HR, legal and accounting teams. 

We have depth of knowledge and experience in counter-fraud

Our services are:

  • Comprehensive, providing a one-stop shop for everything you need to handle your fraud problem
  • Integrated, ensuring maximum impact from everything that we do
  • Professional, using only the highest-quality staff with a real track record
  • Focussed on reducing the economic and financial impact of fraud
  • Designed to enhance the reputation and credibility of your organisation

Our counter-fraud division allows organisations not only to respond to problems, but also to take a preventative approach. We work with you to develop an anti-fraud culture in your business, creating strong deterrent cultures and preventative systems, and implementing effective detection processes.

We still do the reactive service, too, and it includes everything that might be needed concerning the conducting of fraud investigations, recovery of losses, and provision of advice concerning legal, disciplinary or regulatory sanctions.
