Small Business is Hurt by Employee Embezzlement

Almost weekly, we read in the paper or hear on the news about another Maine business being hurt by employee theft. Sometimes the losses are well over $50,000.

No business can make themselves exempt from such losses, but there are steps that can be taken and controls put into place that will reduce your exposure to loss and help you discover such loss sooner, while the amounts may still be small.

If you are interested in tightening your internal controls, we can help. We can come to your business, review your procedures and controls and make recommendations to improve them. This won’t guarantee that you will never have employee theft, but it will show your employees that you are in control and reduce the likelihood of it happening. Investing hundreds of dollars now could save you several thousand dollars in the future.
