Fraud & Forensics

KPC Chartered Professional Accounting Firm

No business owner wants to imagine that their employees may be stealing from them. Still, statistics show it happens daily and that small businesses are the most vulnerable. It is estimated that 75 percent of all theft goes undetected.

Fraud prevention & detection

One thing is constant ... fraud is always a surprise. Our clients say, “We never saw it happening.” Solid internal controls, implemented and followed correctly, are the best deterrent to fraud.

KPC’s forensic accountants set up controls to help eliminate opportunities and prevent wrongdoing. Fraud services include:

  • Conduct an internal control study
  • Conduct a fraud examination
  • Perform internal audits of high-risk areas
  • Conduct an IT security audit

If fraud is discovered, KPC has the personnel and experience to begin a timely investigation, prevent further loss, determine the full extent of the fraud and prepare for litigation and recovery.
