Forensic accounting has been described as an “art and science” that investigates people and money. Forensic accountants are known for tracing funds (following the money), uncovering hidden assets and educating involved parties as to potential damages. In simple words, a forensic accountant will hunt until the money is found, make sure that money is applied to the right place, discover if money and/or assets have been hidden, or if funds or assets have landed in the lap of unintended recipients.
