ARA Fraud & Forensic Services: Fraud & HR Investigations

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners' survey found that fraud costs small businesses 5% of its revenues.

All businesses regardless of size, annual revenue, number of employees or industry are at risk of fraud. A recent survey by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners found that a business owner could experience a median of an 18-month period where a fraud situation goes undetected costing the business thousands of dollars. The same survey showed that businesses typically lose 5 percent of annual revenue due to fraud. These are staggering numbers. For most business owners, a 5 percent loss in revenue is the difference between staying in business and having to close.
