Fraud and Accounting Investigations

With the potential impact of fraud, accounting irregularities and financial crime on UK business now being measured in tens of billions of pounds, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to call upon a professional investigation resource. Whether investigating a large scale international fraud requiring the tracing of cross border transactions, employee malfeasance, procurement fraud or accounting “black hole” irregularities, our Fraud Advisory & Investigations team has extensive experience in dealing with the increasingly prevalent and complex problem of white collar crime across all industries and sectors.

Who we are

Deloitte’s Fraud Advisory & Investigations team is drawn from professionals with a variety of backgrounds including accounting, law enforcement and corporate who have decades of experience in conducting investigations around the globe.

What we do

Recent assignments have covered issues such as:

An integrated, global approach

Our approach is to assign your case to an experienced partner, who will build a multi-disciplinary team tailored to the requirements of the assignment.

Our teams may include professionals from our forensic technology and business Intelligence services group. As a Deloitte member firm, we have a global network of experienced investigators ready to support you wherever your organisation is affected.

Gathering evidence

We conduct our investigations to evidential standards, consistent with the investigation strategy we will agree with you and your legal advisers. Our investigators are experienced in interviewing suspects and witnesses and are used to working within the parameters of the standards imposed by criminal codes including the Police and Criminal Evidence Act. Our investigators are also able to covertly recover evidence so as to preserve its evidential integrity.

Recovering assets and managing outcomes

Deloitte’s investigations are about more than simply identifying the culprit or cause. We are able to assist in the tracing and retrieval of misappropriated assets and to help you improve your policies, procedures and controls to mitigate the risk of similar incidents reoccurring.

Risk management

In addition to investigation services, Deloitte also provide fraud risk management advisory services and teams to investigate financial crime.
