Do you have to sign an independence statement annually? Do you know that such a policy creates more issues than it solves? Ethics in a firm is more than just issues of independence. Ethical dilemmas can appear with client acceptance, client continuation, completing workpapers, time budgets, emails, and even giving tax advice. In 2018, a CPA was convicted of aiding and abetting tax evasion for providing advice on delaying recognition of revenue. Cover the latest issues catching firms in unethical behavior so that you can stay on the right side of ethical decisions.

Financial forensic professionals excel in the analysis of documents and financial data. However, most lack capabilities and training in conducting interviews in a forensic investigation. Topics of discussion include garnering valuable information through interviews; narrowing the scope of the investigation with information gathered in interviews, increasing the probability of success in the engagement, and more. Hypothetical cases and related interviewing tactics will be covered.

Asset misappropriation is by far the most common form of occupational fraud, occurring in more than 89 percent of cases surveyed in the 2018 ACFE Report to the Nation. Expense reports are perhaps the easiest way for employees to access company funds. Most asset misappropriation cases result in small-dollar losses. But expense report fraud can even expand into the millions. Review a case study of how one person was able to defraud a company of over three million dollars, explore how the fraud was discovered, the ways the fraud was carried out, the controls put in place afterward to prevent future frauds, and the outcome of the case.
