Frequently Asked Questions

When facing a specific legal challenge and the possibility of going to court, it’s crucial that you engage the services of an independent and objective accountant that has no prior relationship with any of the parties involved. Also, not every accountant is highly specialised in providing evidence to resolve legal disputes or conducting in-depth analysis as a financial investigator. All of these factors increase the chances that you will receive a fair and reasonable outcome.

As a full-service department, we have experience across a broad range of areas, including valuations, Proceeds of Crime Act (“POCA”) matters, civil litigation expert witness appointments, single joint expert appointments in family disputes and divorce matters, fraud investigations, trend analysis and more.

The purpose of an audit is not to detect fraud, but to ensure that financial statements are free of material misstatements. As a forensic accountant, our purpose is to investigate specific matters, often including suspected fraud and to analyse financial information for use in disputes or legal proceedings. In our field, any irregularity or suspicious transaction relevant to the scope of work is considered material.
