Defining Fraud, Forensic Audits, And Forensic Accounting

Fraud is generally defined as the intentional false representation or concealment of facts for the purpose of inducing another to act upon it to his or her injury.

A fraud audit is a detailed examination of the financial records of a business, with the intent of finding instances of fraud. A forensic audit is an examination and evaluation of an organization's or individual's financial records and information to derive evidence which can be used in a court of law or legal proceeding. A forensic audit is often conducted to prosecute an individual or organization for fraud, embezzlement, or other financial claims.

A Forensic Accountant combines his or her accounting knowledge with investigative skills in various litigation support and investigative accounting settings. Forensic Accountants, also known as Forensic Auditors or Investigative Auditors, often have to give "expert" evidence at a trial to help determine guilt or innocence.

About Our Available Forensic Accounting Courses

A forensic accountant has all the standard accounting training along with specialized training that qualifies the individual to be able to discover and root out fraud. To become a forensic accountant, you will need to prove to potential employers that you have the necessary skills. The best way to do this is by earning the Forensic CPA designation. This forensic accounting certification is undeniable proof that you have the accounting, auditing and investigative skills necessary to do this job.

To earn this certification, you will require proper training. Because forensic accountants may need to be able to present evidence in court, there is a very high standard when it comes to who is qualified to perform this work.

To begin with, you must already be a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or Chartered Accountant (CA) as indicated by having already earned one of these designations. You then must complete forensic accountant training and pass a five-part certification test. You must show mastery by receiving a score of 70 percent or greater on each section of the test. Each section consists of 100 multiple-choice questions. You do not need to take all five parts at once, but you must complete all five within one year.
