Fraud costs businesses, charities and other organisations money - lower profit or money for good causes due to theft of cash, stock or other assets; higher costs and taxes due to fraud perpetrated against other businesses and Government. Fraud investigations escalate costs in terms of disruption to your employees and your operations.
For the avoidance of doubt fraud is a crime – there are victims and perpetrators. The perpetrators are criminals and all organisations and all their employees have a vested interest in helping to prevent fraud. We are here to help you mitigate the risk of fraud in your business, your charity or your organisation
The members of our ‘Fraud and Forensic Services’ team, are well placed to help SMEs put in place procedures designed to help to prevent fraud. When invited into a business to conduct an assignment discretion and confidentiality are essential.
Our team are experienced in spotting the ‘red flags’ of fraud in an organisation and will apply that knowledge to help you reduce the risk of fraud in your business, your charity or your organisation.
Fraud, including Cyber Fraud is becoming an increasingly serious threat. The Fraud Health Check was very thorough and provided clear recommendations and staff training to ensure that we have the best procedures and practices in place to protect us from fraud. I would recommend this approach for any charity or company concerned about the potential threat of fraud.
