Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) supports professional accountants with education, publications and resources to be leaders in forensic accounting.
Forensic accounting engagements require the application of professional accounting skills, investigative skills, and an investigative mindset, and involve disputes or anticipated disputes, or engagements where there are risks, concerns or allegations of fraud or other illegal or unethical conduct. CPA Canada also supports professional accountants with regard to anti-money laundering reporting requirements.
The Forensic & Valuation Reporter published by American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)'s Forensic and Valuation Services Section recently included an article by Ken Tysiac, Senior Editor of Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) Magazine and Journal of Accountancy. In the article, Ken discusses the expected increase in demand for forensic accounting services in the United States over the next five years.
