Tool for Checking Corporate Revenue Accounts Frauds

Corporate revenue account fraud and account manipulation are serious issues for businesses in many parts of the world today. Although legislations such as Sarbanes Oxley have been passed with the intention of making corporates more accountable; corporate accounting is still vulnerable to manipulation and fraud. A company’s financial statement is a primary area in which a fraud can happen.

A financial statement is the elementary piece of documentation which reflects a company’s financial stature. It mirrors the company’s financial health, and is the document that is taken up as reference for discussion and clarification during shareholders’ and board members’ meetings. Since they contain information about cash flows, balance sheets and income statements; financial statements are the reference point for judging the financial situation of a company.

Why does fraud take place in financial statements?

Financial statement fraud can happen for a number of reasons:

  • It can be carried out to deflate figures, so that shareholders may be paid lesser dividends than they deserve
  • Financial statement fraud can also be to report lesser incomes, so that the company pays lesser tax
  • They can also be inflated to raise more funding and capital

Financial ratios as a means of detecting financial statement fraud

Among the many mechanisms used for detecting financial statement frauds; financial ratios are an important one. They can be used to analyze and interpret the numbers in financial statements to arrive at an understanding of important aspects such as the following among others:

  • Is the company holding excess inventory unnecessarily?
  • Is it running a heavier debt than is necessary or manageable?
  • Are the payments from customers coming rightly, fully and on time?
  • Is the company spending a lot more on production than is necessary, i.e. is its operating expense on the higher side?
  • How is the company utilizing its resources and assets to generate revenues?

Ways of using financial ratios to detect frauds

A financial analyst, or anyone connected with the company’s financial statements, such as a chartered accountant, auditor, stakeholders, and board members and so on, can use financial ratios to quickly analyze the situation. Whenever there is a change in the allocation or revenues from each source, the extent to which the changes happened needs to be explained. Unless there is a reasonable or convincing reason for which the values change from one year to another; it becomes a potential red flag that is worth investigating into.

And the percentage or extent to which the ratio changes in relation to the industry average can also be used as a reference. If the industry average for a certain item is say, 15% of the expense, and if there is a perceptible change in it from one year to another in a company’s financial statement, then that is something that needs to be looked into.

These are just a couple of examples of how ratios can potentially show up mismatches and anomalies in the financial statement.
