Learning Objectives
  • Recognize professional responsibilities and practice management. As in all engagements, CPAs need to be cognizant of the professional standards applicable to forensic matters.
  • Apply fundamental forensic knowledge. The CPA's understanding of the applicable civil and criminal justice systems (or alternative dispute resolution process) is essential to the planning, performance and reporting of a forensic engagement. While not every forensic engagement will result in litigation, each one should be approached as if it will be presented in court.
  • Apply specialized forensic knowledge. Since each forensic accounting engagement is unique, the forensic accountant must use appropriate specialized forensic knowledge. Topics covered include bankruptcy, insolvency and reorganization; electronic data analysis; damages calculations; family law; financial statement misrepresentation; fraud prevention, detection and response; and valuation.
