What is Business Fraud?

In business law, fraud is typically understood as dishonest and illegal activity that adversely impacts someone or their company. The motivation is often to achieve a result that offers a favorable financial outcome for the person or people committing fraud.

Examples of business fraud include:

  • Personal Purchases: Buying unapproved goods or services for personal use with company funds.
  • Skimming: Intercepting incoming funds before they can be accounted for and diverting them into personal accounts or as cash.
  • Asset Theft: Stealing cash or fixed assets from a business.
  • Falsifying Financial Records: Forging exceptional financial statements is a criminal way of obtaining loans or selling stock.
  • Tax Avoidance: Tax returns can be forged to reduce a company’s tax liability by showing less than actual income gained.

Whether you’re responding to an accusation involving business fraud or intending to formally accuse someone of it, understand that this is a serious matter. Depending upon the scope of this situation and facts at hand, the consequences of a successful accusation of fraud can involve penalties including severe fines, restitution orders, and even jail or prison time.
