Fraud Deterrence and Forensic Accounting
Far too many businesses become the victims of employee fraud, with a cost reported to be in the hundreds of billions of dollars each year. In other situations, there are disputes between business owners involving what actually transpired at a particular company over a period of time.
Our team members Eric Ransick, CPA/CFF, CVA (Certified in Financial Forensics) and Greg Zick, CPA, CVA, MAFF (Master Analyst in Financial Forensics) have expertise in and work in these areas. Eric was also a federal Special Agent - Criminal Investigator for the U.S. Treasury Department for thirteen years before transitioning to work in the CPA firm environment. Greg has fifteen years experience in auditing closely held companies including evaluation of internal controls and fraud risk, and specific training in assessment and mitigation of fraud risk.
Our team can assist business owners in evaluating fraud risk in their companies, and in designing improved internal controls and business processes to reduce this risk.
We also complete forensic accounting engagments, using our accounting, auditing and investigatory skills and experience to provide an analysis of financial and other records in connection with litigation matters, dispute resolutions, fraud and theft investigations, and similar situations when we are engaged for such work.
