Our accounting and finance professionals provide a diverse and comprehensive services to our clients that meet the demands of today’s transaction environment.
As the regulatory environment continues to evolve, the need for better and improved control structure becomes ever more imperative. While organizations generally become more control-conscious, there continue to be gaps that need to be addressed through design, testing and documentation.
In addition, a timely review of the existing processes and controls can help ensure the design continues to address an organization’s evolving needs and risks and ensure its efficiency and effectiveness. Most leading companies perform an annual review of their controls and processes across the financial, operational, and compliance areas to ensure that they are working adequately.
Our professionals have decades of internal controls experience working with companies in financial services industries and government agencies. The powerful combination of internal controls experience combined with industry knowledge allows us to effectively identify, mitigate, and remove financial reporting issues, fraud, and other underlying risks in a controlled environment.
Fraud Prevention and Forensic Investigation
Crimes committed against businesses, especially internal fraud, are growing in frequency. It is an issue that every organization, large or small, needs to address. The impact of business crime can include major financial loss, compliance and regulatory violations and even criminal proceedings. In addition to fraud and crime, organizations can also face disputes and negligence claims. These areas are better tackled by experts with experience and qualifications.
Our fraud prevention experts work with clients to design and implement policies and procedures to establish a control environment that mitigates the risk of fraud and minimizes the financial loss. Our fraud investigation and forensic accounting professionals are involved in many aspects of civil and criminal cases. They utilize accounting, auditing, and investigative skills to assist prosecutors and attorneys in quantifying losses. Our forensic accounting team looks beyond the numbers, deals with the reality of business, and delivers highly independent opinions in clear terms.
Internal Audit & Assurance
As companies continue to manage risk and uncertainty, they have come to accept market volatility and complexity along with political and regulatory change. Sometimes in this context of greater risk, many internal audit functions do not keep pace with the changes.
We utilize our proven methodologies and best practices to support our clients who face internal audit challenges. We work with our clients to adopt a risk-based audit approach that takes into account the priorities of various key audit stakeholders.
More specifically, we help our clients establish internal audit functions, develop methodologies and manuals, perform risk assessments, and develop audit plans and programs.

Accounting standards continue to evolve while regulating agencies place greater demand on businesses for tax and accounting transparency.
