Bailey, Carr CPAs P.C. is tough on occupational fraud and abuse because we understand the cost it inflicts on organizations. And the organizations that can least afford the problem are bearing a disproportionate share of the cost. Small businesses (those with under 100 employees) are the most common targets of workplace fraud.
Our Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) have consulted with a broad cross-section of organizations and provided cost-effective ideas on how to combat fraud before it occurs. We help implement measures that are designed to deter and detect fraud.
If fraud does occur, we back you with expertise in forensic accounting. Our CFEs have testified on grand juries, provided depositions, and assisted with numerous occupational fraud cases. Our work in fraud prevention and detection has earned us a distinguished record of excellence among clients and colleagues.
Start by taking proactive steps that will help prevent fraud in your workplace. The first step is admitting it can happen to your business, because it can. Given the wrong opportunity, your employees, managers, and vendors could abuse the trust you place in them. And that misplaced trust could place your business in great financial peril.
Fraud deterrence begins at the top. You and your management team must embrace a zero-tolerance policy against fraud. That means you must be willing to take appropriate action agains those who cheat you.
