Forensic Accounting Services

As your business grows, the risk of fraud grows. Barnes Wendling CPAs is a reliable partner to conduct forensic accounting investigations if you suspect fraudulent or unlawful activity. Our forensic accounting team offers a tactical and multidisciplinary approach which may include a review, analysis of financial data, or testimony in negotiations, debates, or dispute resolution in a court of law.

Impact of Fraud on Your Business

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) has estimated anywhere between five to seven percent of gross revenues are lost annually to fraud. This loss can ultimately decrease the value of a business, but effective fraud prevention and detection can reduce potential losses and increase the value of your business.
