Investigations include civil and criminal fraud and proceeds of crime
Our forensic accountancy team are regularly instructed to assist with fraud investigations, including civil fraud, criminal fraud and proceeds of crime. In cases of civil fraud, KTS Forensic can investigate the possibility of a business suffering a loss due to a fraud being perpetuated by one or more of its employees. Once instructed as forensic accountants, all our investigations are conducted in a confidential and prudent manner given the sensitivity of allegations.
We often find that fraud is larger than originally thought. Our forensic accountancy reports focus on the extent of civil fraud and weaknesses in the system that allowed the fraud to take place. In cases of criminal fraud, we are instructed on behalf of defendants, CPS and other bodies. Our reports examine and analyse the evidence, to ensure that no relevant details are overlooked.
Proceeds of Crime (POCA) is a separate hearing which determines how much of a criminal’s assets are proceeds of crime and can therefore be confiscated. The rules are complex and have been described by some professionals as leading to inequitable results. We assist with the interpretations of the rules.
