Description:

Audit professionals must be able to identify the telling signs and methods of financial statement fraud to uncover and respond to such situations when performing an audit. This is true whether auditing one of the largest SEC reporting companies or small closely held businesses.

By learning approaches based on real world experiences from veteran advisors to analyze financial statements, audit professionals can arm themselves with critical techniques to ferret out any instances of financial fraud.

Our panel will explain the differences between fraud and errors and identify common but easy to miss financial statement fraud schemes, including improperly recording certain transactions as sales, underreporting expenses, and improper disclosures.

Listen as our panel of experienced audit advisors discusses what signs to look for in financial statements that signal potential fraud and outlines their experiences and best practices to uncover fraud and mitigate risk.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.
