CPA Firms Offering of Forensic Services Surprisingly Consistent over Time: Are Cpa's Missing out on a Forensic Accounting Gold Rush?(Certified Public Accountant) Academy of Accounting and Financial Studies Journal read online review & book description:

ABSTRACT This paper presents data generally indicating that, over the seven-year period 1998 through 2004, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) firms' offering of forensic accounting services didn't change very much at all. While a few fluctuations (up and down) of the percentages of firms offering forensic services between years were noted, overall it appears that (1) about the same percentage of CPA firms offered such services in 2004 compared with 1998 and (2) no meaningful changes have occurred during the seven-year period in the types of firms offering such services, for example, in 2004, as in 1998, only around 10 percent of the smallest CPA firms offered forensic services compared with around 42 percent of the largest CPA firms. The apparent lack of growth in forensic services provided by CPA firms is quite surprising considering that demand for such services has likely increased in recent years. Possible implications: If there really is more forensic business out there now than a few years ago, then it appears, based on the survey data, that professionals other that CPAs are capturing much or most of the new business. If this is the case, perhaps it is because many CPA's don't find such work profitable; or, perhaps many CPAs do not seek such work because of inadequate training/education in forensic techniques; or, perhaps, "forensic specialists" are sought after by the market to a greater extent than 'traditional' CPA's that offer forensic accounting as one of many public accounting services. This paper presents the results of national surveys of CPA firms over a seven year period indicating the extent to which such firms offer forensic services and also discusses several possible implications of the data.
