Forensic Accountant Jobs

Forensic Accountant Overview


Forensic Accountants are called in when there is suspicious activity on a personal or company bank account. The Forensic Accountant then analyzes and interprets the data, summarizing the complex information into a format that others can understand. Forensic Accountants can be called on to testify in legal proceedings and present their findings to the court; they also work alongside government and police officials quite often.

Forensic Accountant Educational Requirements


At least a bachelor's degree is required to become a Forensic Accountant although there are many who hold a master's degree in accounting, financial forensics, computer science or a related field. Experience is the most important teacher in this job. Very little on-the-job training is given as Forensic Accountants are expected to already possess the analytical skills necessary. An eye for detail and the ability to easily calculate mathematics is essential as is the ability to speak clearly and concisely to large audiences. Working with others in this job is common, so conversational skills and a professional personality are good traits to have.

Forensic Accountant Job Market


There are currently more than 1 million accountants employed across the United States, but only a portion of these are Forensic Accountants. Exact numbers are difficult to pinpoint, but the accounting field is projected to grow by 13 percent by 2022, from 1,275,400 to 1,442,200 total employed accountants in the country. The amount of stress involved in this field is considerable, which results in an uncommonly high turnover rate when compared to other occupations. Similar positions include Public Accounting Forensic Accounting jobs.

Forensic Accountant Salary


Due to the delicate and secretive nature of the work, Forensic Accountants have the ability to make quite a bit of money. With an average wage of $32 an hour, Forensic Accountants earn an average of $66,000 annually. However, certain firms offer much higher salaries to skilled Forensic Accountants; depending on the company and its geographic location, a Forensic Accountant can earn as much as $171,000 to $189,000 annually.
