Course Description

Revenue and cash receipts are two critical areas that require strong controls to prevent intentional fraud or unintentional misstatements. While there is well-publicized fraud in these areas in larger companies, it also occurs, and can even be more likely to occur, in smaller businesses and not-for-profit entities. A sound system of internal control is needed to help prevent fraudulent activities and reporting related to the revenue and cash receipts cycle. 

According to the 2020 Report to the Nations, published by the ACFE, three of the five asset misappropriation schemes presenting the greatest risk involve the misappropriation of cash.  They are:

  • Check and payment tampering
  • Cash larceny
  • Payroll

A deficiency in internal control that prevents an entity from protecting its cash is putting that entity’s existence into jeopardy.  It is management’s responsibility to develop, implement, and maintain controls to protect the entity’s assets from misappropriation as well as to otherwise achieve management objectives.  In addition, regardless of the actual relationship or the  service performed by a CPA for a client, in many cases a client will hold the CPA responsible for the detection of fraud and many even hold the CPA liable for fraud subsequently detected by others.

This course describes the most common types of fraud schemes used to misappropriate cash, including 

  • How Frauds are committed
  • The conditions under which frauds will be successful
  • The impact on various financial statement components  
  • Identifying the signs that may be indicators of fraud, and the controls that may be effective for prevention.
