Business Interruption Losses
The most common causes of Business Interruption (BI) claims are from hurricanes, floods, tornados, fires as well as flu pandemics such as COVID-19. After a catastrophic event, adjusters may not have the time or resources to evaluate a BI claim. Our team is strategically positioned to provide forensic accounting support to adjusters and attorneys with their BI claim load. We analyze pre-disaster and post-disaster financial information to quantify the amount of the financial loss.
Every BI claim is unique and therefore requires an in-depth financial analysis and approach to calculating the lost profits. Even though there are some common methodologies, there are some areas that can be challenged such as determination of benchmark revenues, projections, variable costs, and period of restoration.
JDS Forensics can act as your Appraiser in the appraisal process found in some policies or as an expert witness if needed in litigation.
Financial Fraud Losses
Financial fraud may be committed by an individual or group of individuals inside or outside of a company that may result in financial distress or the inability of the company to continue as a going concern.
Corporations, Attorneys, Trustees, Receivers, Corporate Monitors, Insurance Companies, and various Government Entities typically will call upon a forensic accountant to follow the money involving various fraud schemes including Ponzi schemes, bankruptcy fraud, securities fraud, insurance fraud, grant fraud, money laundering, and corporate embezzlements.
Procedures to determine how the fraud occurred and to quantify the damages may include:
Interviews of Key Financial Officers and Accounting Personnel, Board of Directors, as well as Internal & External Auditors.
Analysis of source documentation such as invoices, approved vendor lists, canceled checks, wire transfers, payroll records, deposits records, bank statements, brokerage statements, general ledgers, journal entries, income tax returns, financial statements, trend analysis, market data, net worth analysis, and other data analytics.
Analysis of information including open sources, online public records searches, social media, emails, texts, related parties, conflicts of interest, and shell entities.
Examination of internal controls, including recommendations to the Board or Designated Oversight Entity for noted material deficiencies and recommendations for implementing effective internal controls.
JDS Forensics will follow the money and provide assistance with asset recovery as well as provide ways to prevent & mitigate fraud risk in your organization.
