If the COTG is to truly promote the celebration of the gift of life, it is incumbent upon us to provide services to our members that will enable them to be safe and secure. It starts with financial security. One of the services the Church of the Good will offer, therefore, is forensic accounting.
Accounting by God simply means accounting with no agenda other than transparency and illumination. Our forensic service is not intended to make you money, rather it is intended to provide you with a full transparency, accuracy, and assessment of all your financial dealings so that you can make more informed decisions with your advisors.
Our COTG Financial Review will scrupulously examine all of your financial relationships and obligations. We will review the performance and veracity of your accountants, lawyers, financial advisors, insurance providers, and agents; as well as all contracts, investments, holdings, loans, debt, credit, trusts, associations, tax filings, wills, and financial instruments.
The main value of the COTG forensic team is that it has no agenda beyond your financial well-being; whereas, every other advisor has an economic stake in the retention of you as a source of income. This allows us the opportunity to provide you with a clear assessment of your financial health, an assessment that is not prejudiced by any other agenda.
What you don’t know may be undermining years of hard work, wise investments, and good faith. Our forensic review will give you the peace of mind that comes with transparency and accuracy. While our belief in god is based on faith, there is indeed a preponderance of evidence that substantiates god’s existence [not the least of which is his gift of life]. The same holds true for your advisors. Every financial relationship you participate in is based on good faith. And while faith is both uplifting and essential, it is not enough. We are all responsible for the scrupulous examination of all our activities, associations, and investments.
Let the COTG financial review provide you with the requisite examination that your financial health depends on.
Information: Financial forensics is the specialty practice area of accountancy that describes engagements that result from actual or anticipated disputes. ”Forensic” means “suitable for use in a court of law,” and it is to that standard and potential outcome that our forensic accounting works.
Our financial forensic engagements are generally concerned with economic damage, whether suffered through tort or breach of contract. This is, increasingly, an area of great concern. Often advisors not only mislead, but, at times, surreptitiously compromise their clients through outright theft and conspiracy.
Our forensic engagements also review bankruptcy, insolvency, and reorganization. And our review adds transparency and credibility to any business valuation.
Our forensic accountants specialize in professional negligence claims where they are assessing and commenting on the work of other professionals. Our forensic accountants are also engaged in marital and family law of analyzing lifestyle for spousal support purposes, determining income available for child support, and equitable distribution.
The COTG forensic accountants specialize in forensic analytics which is the procurement and analysis of electronic data to reconstruct, detect, or otherwise support a claim of financial fraud. The main steps in forensic analytics are data collection, data preparation, data analysis, and reporting. We are most noted for our computer forensics/e-discovery.
