Forensic Accounting Services
Accountants look at the numbers. Forensic accountants look behind the numbers.
If you’re concerned about financial discrepancies and financial fraud, you need more than an accountant. You need a forensic accountant who specialises in forensic accounting. If you want to know why your numbers don’t match, call on getsix® for an in-depth financial investigation.
In today’s business environment, fraud and financial irregularities are becoming more common and more complex.
Our getsix® team of forensic accountants, certified public accountants, investigators and researchers are thoroughly trained and will not only find financial discrepancies-they’ll find out who, what, where, why, when and how-all during the course of our forensic accounting financial investigation. More importantly, we’ll help you put together, implement systems and controls, to prevent internal or external fraud from happening again.
Forensic accountants become involved in an array of investigations.
This may involve:
- Criminal Investigations – where a forensic accountant may be required to prepare a report with the objective of presenting evidence in a professional and concise manner;
- Shareholders’ and Partnership Disputes – involving assignments that require a detailed analysis of numerous years of accounting records in order to resolve, for example, compensation and benefits disputes of shareholders or partners;
- Personal Injury Claims – when a forensic accountant is asked to quantify economic losses resulting from an accident, often calculating resulting economic damage in cases of medical malpractice and wrongful dismissal;
- Business Interruption – reviewing the details of an insurance policy, for example, to investigate coverage issues and the appropriate method of calculating the loss of areas such as business interruptions, property losses and employee dishonesty (fidelity) claims;
- Fraud Investigations – which involves a forensic accountant’s work in determining funds tracing, asset identification, and recovery, most commonly performed with employee fraud cases;
- Matrimonial Disputes – which require a forensic accountant to trace, locate and evaluate assets, including businesses, properties and other personal assets;
- Business Economic Losses – that of which includes areas such as contract disputes, construction claims, expropriations, product liability, trademark or patent infringements and losses occurring from a breach of a non-competition agreement;
- Professional Negligence – either through a technical perspective, where the forensic accountant will investigate a breach in an agreement, or through a loss quantification;
- Mediation and Arbitration – where a forensic accountant may be hired to become involved in an alternative dispute resolution, so that individuals and businesses may resolve disputes with minimal disruption and with a minimal amount of time.
