More on Financial Fraud and Internal Control Systems
Since 2005, licensed CPA’s in California have had specific education requirements directly related to fraud in financial statement reporting. There are several reasons for this; the most obvious being that fraud does exists. Unfortunately, in any business or organization, there is a chance that fraud is occurring in your workplace.
The statistics are startling. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners released the 2012 Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse. This study points out many eye-opening findings related to fraud in the workplace. To that end, organizations should consider:
- Implementing a “whistleblower” policy which allows there to be a platform for tips to come in.
- Implementing or strengthening internal controls within the business in order to prevent and detect fraud.
Organizations should consult with their Certified Public Accountant to assist them with developing effective internal controls.
