Gathering Evidence


Forensic Data Collection Process

Forensic accountancy can only be successful if every step in the investigative process is given sufficient priority. That said, it could be argued that nothing matters more than of an effective forensic data collection process. Regardless of the nature or extent of the financial crime, the outcome will be determined by what takes place during this crucial stage. Forensic accountants must have comprehensive knowledge of evidence gathering techniques, along with the confidence to put them into practice. The investigator needs to know where, when and how to both search for and gather evidence, following the detection of suspected fraud. Unless the right evidence is collected and presented in a timely manner, the rest of the fraud prevention process is rendered redundant.

This advanced tutorial is suitable for existing and prospective forensic accountants alike. Learn how to approach the forensic data collection process strategically and effectively, along with the importance of evidence created by the forensic accountant. Explore the types of evidence that need to be gathered, document collection and organisation, sources of information and how to begin preparing a convincing case.
