In recent times,  the need for forensic accounting has grown exponentially due to increased fraud rates that are present both locally and globally. This is a professional field which is being shaped by the rise of information and regulatory  technology. Forensic Accountants basically apply special skills in accounting, auditing, finance, quantitative methods, certain areas of the law, research, and investigative skills to collect, analyze and evaluate evidential matter and to interpret and communicate findings.

The Forensic Accountant investigates a wide range of different activities related to fraud that can take place within different types of organizations. However, Forensic Accountants do not only work for fraud investigations and law enforcement agencies but also render their professional services in the compliance departments of business entities, at law firms, banks, other financial institutes, and government agencies. With expertise in detection, prevention and deterrence of fraud, the Forensic Accountant adds value to organizations and the economy.
