There are many reasons why you may be subject to a financial investigation. Navigating this complex and sometimes process can be tricky. At Dains, we have experience of numerous ad-hoc financial investigations and can apply our investigatory skills in a wide and varied set of circumstances. We can offer comfort and assurance over and above your normal accounting or audit procedures.

What is Fraud? “wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain”

Fraud is not a victimless crime and it isn’t just restricted to financial loss and risking reputation. Many organisations overlook the impact of internal fraud. They don’t understand how much senior management time and resource can be taken up, as well as the damaging effect it can have on morale and trust.

In any workplace there can be a need for fraud investigations. Some organisations may simply want comfort and assurance over and above what they get from their normal accounting or audit procedures and this is where we can help. 

Of course, the whole process must keep to civil and where needed, criminal standards and frameworks. Keeping to these will avoid exposing organisations to legal challenges and the possibility of prejudice in future proceedings against individuals.

We have experience of many ad-hoc financial investigations and can apply our skills in a wide and varied set of circumstances.

Whether you need help with: 

  • Fraud regulation and compliance.
  • Potential exposure to fraud and corruption, or
  • Understanding how to remove or reduce fraud and corruption risk from your organisation.

At Dains, our compliance & risk service will respond quickly to any of these concerns and take the time to deliver a service to match your needs. We provide a balanced, strategic and working approach that is suitable for the size and nature of your organisation.

Please note:  since the inception of the Bribery Act (2010) it’s an offence for an organisation to fail to prevent bribery. To provide a statutory defence against the corporate offence, you (or your organisation), must prove that you had adequate procedures in place to prevent bribery.
