Course Description: Chartered Business Valuators (CBVs) and other professionals are often retained on a variety of matters that require reliance on financial disclosure provided by the parties.  A common example includes family law matters, where CBVs may be retained by their clients to perform analysis, such as calculating income for child and/or spousal support and valuing assets for purposes of facilitating equalization payments.  In many cases, financial information provided is unaudited or has never been scrutinized by an independent third party, and therefore, may be subject to intentional manipulation; this can have a significant financial impact for the client.At the conclusion of this one-hour fraud awareness training webinar, participants will take away the following:

  • An understanding of what is fraud and the indicators or “red flags” to look out for
  • How financial statements, income and assets are typically manipulated, particularly in the context of family law matters
