Counter Fraud

All organisations are continually faced with the threat of fraud and corruption, both from external and internal parties. Our team of accredited counter fraud specialists and highly experienced investigators can provide expert advice to support a proactive approach to tackling fraud, bribery and corruption. Where fraud is identified, we can carry out specialist investigations supporting a range of outcomes from local resolution to criminal prosecution. Our highly specialist team also includes access to accredited financial investigators and a forensic technology team.

Our team has a wealth of experience gained supporting public and private sector organisations, drawing on broad experience gained in UK and overseas police forces, the NHS, military police, the National Crime Agency, Interpol,  the Independent Police Complaints Commission, regulatory bodies, the Department for Work and Pensions and local authorities.

We not only have a proven track record of securing successful prosecutions, but also have a robust financial recovery ethos which has driven positive outcomes through both voluntary repayment and Proceeds of Crime Act recoveries.    

At the heart of our robust tried and tested methodology is our quality assurance regime. Whether we are carrying out a proactive review or prosecuting an individual, our methodology and quality assurance processes ensure the highest standard and consistency of our work.   

AuditOne has developed a wide range of innovative ways to raise the profile of the counter fraud team and the work they do. This includes interactive delegate participation presentations and cartoon videos.
