Forensic accounting is a science dealing with the application of accounting facts gathered through auditing methods and procedures to resolve legal problems. It is a specialty requiring the integration of investigative, accounting and auditing skills. The forensic accountant looks at documents and financial and other data in a critical manner in order to:
- draw conclusions and calculate values and to
- identify irregular patterns and/or suspicious transactions.
A forensic accountant does not merely look at the numbers but rather behind the numbers. (Barron’s Accounting Dictionary)
