Also known as investigative accounting, forensic accounting is a detailed examination and analysis of financial documents and records for use as evidence in a court of law. The term “forensic accounting” can refer to anything from the execution of a fraud analysis to the recreation of “true” accounting records after the discovery that they have been manipulated.
IT IS NOT “accounting for dead people” (yes, we’ve been asked this… many times).
IT IS the application of a wide range of accounting, auditing, and investigative skills to measure and verify economic damages and resolve financial disputes.
IT IS the application of an otherwise criminal mentality for the forces of good.
While many of our engagements are performed in the arena of litigation, forensic accounting services are also useful by those who don’t have law degrees. If you’re searching for an objective expert witness, a mediator, a trustee, or a consultant, Sage Forensic Accounting may be able to help.
