Advantages of investigative auditing

Early detection of a threat of a criminal act may allow to prevent it. This issue is closely related to the subject of compliance, which also remains in the sphere of BTLA practice. It is particularly important in connection with the planned amendments to the Act on Liability of Collective Entities for Criminal Offences. The planned changes are revolutionary in nature, consisting, among other things, in increasing the scope of liability of collective entities and criminal sanctions connected with such liability.

Investigative audit – why choose us?

BTLA cooperates with many qualified specialists, whose knowledge and experience allow to conduct an effective investigative audit, which in turn will allow to implement a system to prevent corruption, embezzlement, fraud and conflicts of interest. In addition, some BTLA attorneys also hold the title of tax advisor, which also influences effectiveness of such an audit. If you suspect that fraud (or worse, prohibited acts) may be taking place in your organization, it is worth considering such an investigative audit. BTLA provides both preventive (before fraud is detected) and reactive (after fraud is detected) audit services. As mentioned at the beginning, it is worthwhile to prevent negative actions, rather than having to face their – often long-term – consequences, which often cannot even be foreseen.u.
