What I do
Forensic Accounting Services
Why get me involved early?
I am independent and design my analysis and reporting in stages to minimise cost and maximise efficiency.
Fresh unbiased eyes often provide clarity and can lead closer to mediation or even provide the foundations for moving in a different and focussed direction.
Compilations of huge amounts of data from disparate sources saves you time
I often build large cross referenced Excel tables which provide me verification with source documents and you summaries of what can be thousands of lines of data.
Small Business Valuation Services
We are very familiar with small business, having operated several, and prepared accounts for many more. We offer valuations for businesses turning over up to around $3m.
Depending on what clients require, a quick appraisal often suffices which could be a 1-2 page document. A more detailed document may not change the value, but will provide the methodology in detail.
We do not value real estate.
Loss of earnings Calcuations
If your clients are involved in an accident ,we can provide detailed and well reasoned loss of earnings calculations in either short or long form to suit. These reports are able to be spoken to in Court if required.
Damages claims can arise from many different causes. We are able to assess likely claims based on historical and contemporary data. Our reports contain the workings of the amounts which lead to quality discussions in mediation.
Independent Expert Reports
I am an independent person you can rely on to produce an unbiased report. If there are conflicts in your firm, then I can fill that gap as required.
Aim and Approach
My aim in producing these reports is to provide all of the logic required such that another professional could either arrive at a similar result or adjust the parameters used to arrive at a different result based on the same logic.
The reasoning behind this is that it gets opposing experts on the same page from which agreement is more likely.
Chances are your business or company is suffering from fraud.
Fraud is very widespread and often not reported. Having up to date policies is just good governance. When is the last time yours were reviewed?
We can help.
We can assist you in the following ways:
Investigation: We can investigate suspected fraud by reviewing financial records, interviewing employees, and using various forensic techniques to detect fraud.
Evidence collection: We can collect and preserve evidence that may be used in court or other legal proceedings.
Analysis: We can analyze financial records and other data to identify patterns, trends, or anomalies that may indicate fraud.
Expert testimony: If a case goes to court, we can provide expert testimony to explain our findings and assist the court in understanding the financial aspects of the case.
