Anti Fraud and Forensic

 

White-collar criminals don’t use violence or threats to break the law. Opportunity, deception, concealment and the violation of trust are the tools of their trade.

 

To fight back against this type of thief, a background in auditing, accounting, criminology, law and business/financial investigation and analysis is required. Forensic accounting not only draws upon these necessary skills but also demands creativity. It takes the ability to develop fresh approaches, look beyond the numbers, find underlying facts and fill in the blanks when the figures are missing.

 

The Certified Anti-Corruption Managers (CACMs), the Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) and the Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) of Birzeit Consulting offer a broad range of fraud and forensic services to help you deal with these times of adversity. If a fraud, corruption or theft has been committed, it is important for you to know the extent of it, how it was perpetrated, who the involved parties are, opportunities for recovery and how to prevent a recurrence in the future.

 

Even if there is no suspicion that any wrongdoing has occurred, Birzeit Consulting can help your organization conduct a proactive, operational review in order to determine that the existing policies, procedures and internal controls are functioning properly and, for the most part, are adequate to control the risks and concerns of your organization.

Internal Control

 

The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) defines internal control as follows:

 

"Internal control is broadly defined as a process, effected by an entity's board of directors, management and other personnel, designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of objectives in the following categories:

 

1- Effectiveness and efficiency of operations

2-Reliability of financial reporting

3- Compliance with applicable laws and regulations"

 

What Internal Control Can Do

 

Internal control can help an entity achieve its performance and profitability targets, and prevent loss of resources. It can help ensure reliable financial reporting. And it can help ensure that the enterprise complies with laws and regulations, avoiding damage to its reputation and other consequences. In sum, it can help an entity get to where it wants to go, and avoid pitfalls and surprises along the way.

 

What Makes Us Market Leaders

 

It is our belief that internal control must differ from one entity to another since people, who are the major player of any internal control system, and organizational cultures differ. Thus, the DNA of an entity is its internal control systems. It is impossible to have two identical internal control systems in two different entities. Management is always responsible to establishing, implement and maintain adequate internal control systems. However, as change happens every day in any entity’s operations, management is responsible for keeping up with trends both within their organizations and in relation to global best practices.

 

Based on the internal control principles of the COSO, the relevant literature of the business schools of Harvard, Princeton, and other reputable research centers in the USA, we developed our own toolkits to address each aspect of the internal control systems of any entity; for-profit; non-profit and government. In addition, we integrated the information theory and information technology in our approach.

 

Internal Control

 

We use a principle-based, risk-based, and a process-based approach and we deliver our consulting services in accordance to the following categories:

 

1- Evaluate and assess the design and operation of internal control systems

2- Design Internal control systems

3- Oversea the implementation of internal control systems

4- Maintain (audit) the internal control systems

 

 

 

Due Diligence

 

In today’s business climate, it is important to have the best, most accurate information at your fingertips. Information that will help guide you in making the best decisions as you move forward.

 

When you are dealing with delicate business matters, the data you can glean from the traditional sources, as well as the information overload that is the Internet, may not be enough.

 

Sometimes things go awry and it becomes essential to find assets that may be lost or hidden. It requires a deft touch to locate assets that may be anywhere in this or other countries. We have the touch. Business is conducted on a global scale these days and the people and companies you do business with may not be as transparent and straightforward as they should be. It is important to understand all aspects of any business relationship. Increasingly, thorough due diligence is a necessary requirement of every business deal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We empower those charged with governance, management, and personnel to be in control
