What is Forensic Accounting?

“Forensic Accounting” is a specialized form of accounting, also known as Investigative Accounting. It is used to detect and quantify fraud, theft, kickbacks and other inappropriate financial transactions. With the increase in white-collar crime like Ponzi schemes, money laundering, online fraud, securities fraud, financial reporting irregularities, and identity theft, the number of individuals and organizations requiring Forensic / Investigative Accounting and Litigation Support services is growing.

Forensic /Investigative Accounting is also used in civil matters to quantify financial amounts in civil and other disputes.
