Woman caught 'red-handed' stuck in red ribbons illustrationForensic accounting is different from regular accounting. Rather than just looking at the numbers and analysing the performance of the business, forensic accounting works to identify a trail of numbers that lead to an employee or business partner who is intending to commit fraud. Forensic accounting does exactly what it says on the tin: it uses specific accounting and auditing procedures to uncover evidence in such a way that it can be used in a court of law. This means that you can pursue litigation if necessary and be equipped with concrete evidence that can highlight the fraud in a concise and indisputable way. And if you catch on to the fraud early, you can work on tools to protect your business from any future fraudulent activity.

In addition to catching fraudsters, forensic accounting can also be used to help you resolve any disputes you may have with other companies or businesses. By looking at your accounts and tracking the numbers, you can have a better idea of where the money is going, and can potentially work on settling the issue before any court action is needed.
