Why a National Crime Check is important
From bookkeeping to booksneaking… Why you can always trust your ABBS team
Police checks and clearances are some of the most important things that should be at the top of your list when choosing a bookkeeper. After all, you are placing your livelihood into their trusted hands.
But how do you know you can really trust them?
There have been countless stories over the years of how accountants, bookkeepers and even administration officers have ripped off their employer’s funds and disappeared into the wild blue yonder.
"They have direct access to money and I think that’s where there is a lot of trust in that area."
Research by Warfield and Associates reports on theft by employees, the worst offenders being accountants and bookkeepers. The most common method of theft is through electronic funds transfer, where funds are simply transferred into the perpetrator’s account.
“They have direct access to money and I think that’s where there is a lot of trust in that area,” Mr Warfield reported. “In one case, a woman stole $45 million from her employer to fund a lavish lifestyle.”
There are many other known offences. A 53-year-old mother in Sydney’s West was charged with 98 offences of fraud and managed to steal $3.5 million from a cruise ship company.
