ABOUT FORENSIC ACCOUNTING AND FRAUD EXAMINATION
Forensic accounting and fraud examination are different but related. Forensic accounting work is done by accountants in anticipation of litigation and can include fraud investigation, valuation, bankruptcy, and a host of other professional services. Fraud examinations can be conducted by either accountants or non-accountants and refer only to anti-fraud matters and often assist in fraud prevention and deterrence efforts.
Fraud examinations will generally fall under the category of forensic accounting because the majority of examinations, investigations, and reports regarding fraud are done with “an eye toward litigation.” In other words, Fraud Examiners are taught to conduct their examination with the assumption that the case may end in litigation.
