About Me

Exceptional Service

Practical Forensic Accounting Services You Can Count on

Professional and personable forensic accounting analysis - Australia-wide.

Often I get called in to give opinions on specialist forensic accounting matters, and in  the majority of cases, significant time could have been saved by involving me earlier.

It is preferable to involve me early, as my opinion is factual , unbiased and also available for presentation to Court.  Whilst you may feel that you can manage it yourself, the end result might not be the standard that a Court demands, and neither can it be used by me to form an opinion since I did not prepare it. It is also not independent.

It seems prudent therefore to involve me early. So why not consider saving yourself some time and money, and to focus your time and efforts on running your business and leave the analysis to me?

Together we can create a case that is substance based and factual.

independent expert reports
Forensic Accounting Services

Concise and clear independent expert reports that are well reasoned and replicable are your ally

My approach to explain,  for example,  income,  could involve the detailed analysis of  bank statements, credit cards, loan repayments, unexplained transfers; looking at not only for what is obvious but what might be missing or unknown. Whatever the task, my approach is similar, with reports written in plain language, referenced as required and with full explanation as to how and why my conclusions have been drawn.
