by Zabihollah Rezaee; Richard Riley


From the publisher

Practical examples, sample reports, best practices and recommendations to help you deter, detect, and prevent financial statement fraud

Financial statement fraud (FSF) continues to be a major challenge for organizations worldwide. Financial Statement Fraud: Prevention and Detection, Second Edition is a superior reference providing you with an up-to-date understanding of financial statement fraud, including its deterrence, prevention, and early detection.

You will find

  • A clear description of roles and responsibilities of all those involved in corporate governance and the financial reporting process to improve the quality, reliability and transparency of financial information.
  • Sample reports, examples, and documents that promote a real-world understanding of incentives, opportunities, and rationalizations
  • Emerging corporate governance reforms in the post-SOX era, including provisions of the SOX Act, global regulations and best practices, ethical considerations, and corporate governance principles
  • Practical examples and real-world "how did this happen" discussions that provide valuable insight for corporate directors and executives, auditors, managers, supervisory personnel and other professionals saddled with anti-fraud responsibilities
  • Expert advice from the author of Corporate Governance and Ethics and coauthor of the forthcoming Wiley textbook, White Collar Crime, Fraud Examination and Financial Forensics

Financial Statement Fraud, Second Edition contains recommendations from the SEC Advisory Committee to reduce the complexity of the financial reporting process and improving the quality of financial reports.

From the rear cover

In this new century, financial statement fraud has increasingly become a serious problem for business, government, and investors. In fact, the issue threatens to undermine the confidence of capital markets and corporate leaders. Auditors, in particular, have been hit hard for their seeming inability to find fraud on a massive scale. Monetary damages and settlement judgments in the hundreds of millions of dollars against auditing firms have become commonplace, and one of the largest auditing firms, Arthur Andersen, has completely disappeared.

Now fully updated and filled with up-to-date case examples, Financial Statement Fraud, Second Edition not only explains in understandable language how financial schemes are committed, it also offers valuable advice on how to prevent and detect them. The Second Edition is written specifically with publicly held companies in mind--and packed with guidance from standard-setting organizations such as the PCAOB, AICPA, and the SEC, providing theoretical and practical advice ideally suited for you--whether you are a manager or an auditor--to help you recognize and stop financial statement fraud.

The Second Edition continues to focus on the importance of corporate governance in preventing and detecting financial statement fraud, with the latest coverage on:

  • Examinations of real-world frauds and practical tools and techniques for carrying out their antifraud responsibilities
  • Initiatives affecting the financial reporting and corporate governance and auditing functions, such as SOX- and SEC-related implementation rules
  • Recommendations from the SEC Advisory Committee to reduce the complexity of the financial reporting process and improve the quality of financial reports
  • Emerging financial reporting and auditing initiatives, including movement toward IFRS and IAAS and the use of the XBRL reporting platform
  • Corporate governance reforms in the post-SOX era, including provisions of the SOX Act, global regulations and best practices, ethical considerations, and corporate governance principles

Straightforward and clear, this superior reference provides you with an up-to-date understanding of financial statement fraud, including its deterrence, prevention, and detection. Its uncomplicated language illustrates theoretical and practical concepts and procedures to aid comprehension of complex financial reporting processes and exposure to a variety of fraudulent activities.
