About Us

It is the mindset of a forensic accountant to find and prevent errors and irregularities.
We want individuals to learn Forensic Accounting – ABFA.


The American Board of Accounting® (ABFA) was established in 1993 and is currently located in Central California. The ABFA was the first broad based forensic accounting board and credentialing organization established in the United States. The ABFA is an independent accounting body.

Our Certified Forensic Accountant® certification was recently perceived as one of the most valuable forensic accounting certifications by a group of Independent Experts.


The ABFA believes that forensic accounting principles and practices yield a preemptive approach towards identifying waste and inefficiencies, proactively addressing fraudulent activity, and providing extensive forensic reporting.

The ABFA was established to promote forensic accounting through education, testing, analysis, and evaluation of the knowledge, skills, and abilities of applicants and to provide certification of applicants in the field of forensic accounting.


Members are from large accounting firms, government entities, educational institutions, and individual practitioners.

The benefits of membership include:

  • Networking and referral opportunities through the Board
  • Continuing education credits
  • Special pricing
  • Exclusive opportunity to have articles published
  • Speaker bureau and conferencing network
  • Mentoring and researching selected topics for members
  • Greater sense of personal accomplishment as a member of a professional organization
