BDO contributes to the 8th International Investigations Review

August 2018

BDO’s Forensic Services team are pleased to have once again authored an introductory chapter in the recently published eighth edition of The International Investigations Review.

In the chapter, we analyse the changing role of the forensic accountant. Over recent years, forensic accountants have increasingly been used by companies and their legal counsel to fulfil a wide range of investigative roles outside purely technical financial analysis. A forensic accounting practice will now typically offer forensic technology and e-disclosure services, large-scale document review capability, corporate intelligence skills and the ability to undertake general investigation, including interviewing witnesses and suspects.
