What is forensic accounting?
In the situation in which a foreign investor
entered into a conflict
with another business partner and the case has to be brought to the Italian court
, it is necessary to perform forensic accounting
if the company’s files
are the subject of the case.
Forensic accounting combines accounting and audit techniques with investigative techniques, applicable to the company’s financial statements. After the extensive and detailed analysis is completed, the investor can use the results in the court.
The investigation is usually carried out by a forensic accountant, a person familiar with the accounting and financial systems applicable in Italy.
The forensic investigation
is performed in such a manner that it can offer plausible answers to various issues which were brought in front of the court. This technique can be used for many legal problems, such as fraud or embezzlement
