What is forensic accounting?

Forensic Accounting is an art of investigation over accounting records, financial statements, and other related financial records. The result of the investigation is mostly used for legal support and resolving conflict. Because these kinds of disputes can end up in court, a forensic accountant has to apply legal standards to their work as well as accounting standards.

Forensic accountants in this field of work will typically be engaged to review financial records and information in a post-acquisition dispute, economic damages, calculations bankruptcy and computer forensics. Business valuations, insolvency and fraud issues can also typically require the skills of a forensic accountant.

Difference between forensic accounting and financial audit

Forensic accounting and financial audit have some form of similarities and differences. For example, the purpose of a financial audit statement is to let auditors perform an independent review and then express an opinion. The auditor will only provide reasonable assurance on the financial statements. However, forensic accounting typically investigates the financial statements and quantifies the loss that might happen. They will not issue the opinion.

Also, the main point when it comes to comparing forensic accounting vs financial audit is the process itself. Financial audit will typically have a programme and plan from the start that does not diverge in any shape or form. In contrast, a forensic accountant’s investigation is not linear at all, and may require several pivots or new directions depending on the information that has been uncovered.

Business valuation & corporate valuation disputes

A company may need to be valued for many reasons: the owner wishes to sell, a shareholder wishes to exit the business, there are tax reasons or for the purposes of shareholder dispute and matrimonial proceedings.

Valuing a company is an art rather than a science and a valuation is very much a matter of opinion. At the end of the day a company is worth what will be paid for it on the open market between a willing buyer and a willing seller. The main bases of valuation are:

  • Assets
  • Earnings (capitalised earnings, dividend yield and discounted cash flow)


Bankruptcy fraud is a type of fraud committed by white-collar criminals. It is a legal process by which individuals or other entities that are unable to repay their creditors seek relief from some or all of their debts. An insolvent’s legal position is not limited to bankruptcy.

Concealing an asset, concealing or destroying a document, conflicts of interest, misleading statements, and fraudulent claims are some of the most common criminal offenses under bankruptcy laws.

M&A related lawsuits

It is challenging enough to identify, negotiate and purchase high value assets without having to worry about relying on inaccurate records, deliberate fraud or hidden risks such as exposure to illegal business practices within the target firm. The target management will naturally try to maximize their value as much as possible, perhaps crossing legal lines.

Counterparty relationship risks

Counterparty risk is the probability that the other party in an investment, credit, or trading transaction may not fulfill its part of the deal and may default on the contractual obligations.

If potential counterparty has been tested successfully (existence of registration in the relevant official registers, activities detalis, solvence and reliability, reputation history, etc.) and no significant risks have been revealed, then you can be sure of its reliability and integrity.
