Forensic Accounting is a special field of accounting that utilizes accounting, auditing, and investigative skills to identify and resolve legal issues. Forensic Accounting involves looking beyond the numbers, it is more than accounting work or detective work - it is a combination of the two. This paper will focus on the use of Forensic Accounting, the addition of Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 99’s 42 red flags, and the ten Statements on Auditing Standards (SAS) Nos. 102-111 and how they work together to detect fraudulent financial statements.
