Abstract

Jeanette Van Akkeren, Sherrena Buckby, Kim MacKenzie -A Metamorphosis of the Traditional Accountant: An Insight into Forensic Accounting Services in Australia- argue that there remains some confusion on what constitutes the role of a forensic professional.


It is very well the case that clarity of the definition of what constitutes the role of a forensic professional is crucial to determining how effectively such a role can be harnessed.
As well as exploring the various roles undertaken by forensic accountants based in the US and other selected common law jurisdictions, this publication aims to contribute to the extant literature on how the role of a forensic professional can be effectively utilized and applied, both from common law and comparative based perspectives - which involve selected jurisdictions that constitute the focus of this study.


In so doing it also highlights how a greater degree of accountability and transparency can be introduced into the financial reporting, as well as legal process.
