This is the companion lecture to RVACFES 144 – Investigating the Balance Sheet & Income Statement. The lecture presents a range of tests to use in probing a wide range of expenditure categories in a real world environment. Often practitioners are unfamiliar with specific investigative techniques they can use to find misstatement or fraud because they haven’t confronted fraud in a given expenditure category within a certain business type before. By deploying a fairly wide range of examples, this lecture provides an overview of the issues in building a case from the expenditure categories most associated with fraud and misstatement. You will learn how to use the accounts themselves to support a case for proving the payment of personal expenses and for other types of looting from the business itself. The lecture will help you differentiate, as a practitioner, between legitimate expenditures (with or without tax implications) and expense transactions indicative of fraud or abuse.
100 minutes of self study plus 10 minutes to answer 10 questions for a total of 110 minutes.
