In recent times club staff have become much more sophisticated in the manner in which they defraud their clubs. It is our forensic expertise that allows us to identify these more sophisticated suspects.
Barringtons is assisted police with their enquiries concerning a club manager who is before the court for eighteen fraud offences.
Barringtons prepared a Brief of Evidence which was submitted to the police and as a consequence the manager was arrested and charged with fraud. This is a timely reminder to club managers that the integrity of all cash handling areas should be taken seriously.
Sound procedures should be in place and regular audits should be undertaken to ensure there is a continuity of compliance.
If there are no cash handling procedures and no regular audits then clubs not only expose themselves to fraud, but it is also unlikely that a successful prosecution can be undertaken either industrially or criminally.
