Fraud Can Be a Catastrophic Risk To Your Organization
Fraud cannot be ignored, but steps can be taken now to mitigate your risk. Fraud examination or Forensic Accounting is the integration of accounting, auditing and investigative skills to identify areas susceptible to potential fraud activity, uncover and prove actual fraud that has occurred, and provide the documentation and expert witness needed for litigation support.
Bowers & Company's Fraud Examination Group helps companies and not-for-profit entities to prepare themselves with the internal controls to reduce the possibility of fraud, or investigating when actual fraud is suspected or has occurred.
It is never too soon, nor is a company too small, to take steps to prevent fraud. Our philosophy centers around prevention, rather than waiting to take action after fraud occurs. Bowers & Company's Fraud Check-Up Service will show you how to take pro-active steps to protect your business by:
Development of an Ethics Policy
