Forensic accounting with KBG
Forensic accounting comprises the use of auditing, accounting and investigative skills to interpret and analyse financial and commercial information.
Financial investigations can include a range of assignments during which the forensic accountant is engaged to find out why financial results or behaviour has deviated from the expected outcome and to quantify the impact of such results.
Because the reputations of individuals and companies are at stake, forensic accountants must be very discreet when conducting their investigations. They must be independent and impartial, taking into account both the financial records and the conduct of employees. Unlike other accountants, when forensic accountants conduct audits, they are actively looking for signs of fraud. In addition to examining financial statements to determine whether they are accurate and complete, they may seek out internal databases and court records. Because people committing fraud have hidden the evidence of their crimes, forensic accountants must look beyond the numbers and anticipate criminal actions.
