Unfortunately, for many business owners, the possibility of fraud or misconduct within their organization is a known reality. *According to a 2016 survey conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, a typical organization loses 5% of revenues in a given year to fraud. Fraud or misconduct may include employee theft, misappropriated funds, outside business kickbacks to employees and fraud related to insurance or securities. When this happens, you will want trained, knowledgeable and experienced forensic accountants and expert witnesses at your side.

Investigative Accounting

Without keen accounting expertise, even the most skilled attorneys find it difficult to fully uncover the finer points of a case that includes complex financial matters.  Whether your case involves estate fraud, business valuation, tax issues, divorce, damage calculations, death, breach of contract, lost business profits, personal injury, wrongful death, or a shareholder dispute, TDT CPAs and Advisors offers the professional expertise to make a difference.

The forensic accounting team at TDT CPAs and Advisors can uncover the hard numbers you need to objectively present and prove your case.
