The skills of the forensic accountant apply mostly in criminal investigations into fraud or money laundering cases. Since the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and the setting up of the Assets Recovery Agency forensic accounting experts working to Civil Procedure Rules have an increasingly important role to play in criminal matters.
We can assist with:
- preparation of expert reports for the prosecution or defence teams
- detailed investigation work in fraud and other financial crimes
- investigation work for the Proceeds of Crime Act including asset tracing
- advice on the approach to fiscal investigations in criminal cases.
