I have been teaching and practicing in the fields of Accounting, Fraud and Ethics for more than 35 years, and I have never seen a resource for small business owners better than Vitalics.
20 years ago, 10 years ago and probably 5 years ago, fraud was not an issue for small businesses. Today is a large issue that must be faced by small business owners if they want to succeed or even survive.
This program is easily used and adapted to all small business. Today with fraud cases being as much of a problem for small businesses as it is for large companies, and the major reason for this problem being lack of internal control, Vitalics is the solution.
When a small business has a small number of employees and segregation of duties is difficult, again Vitalics has the solution.
Vitalics is a must for any small business, it is easy to use, it is based on years of understanding small businesses by the author, and I would highly recommend it based upon everything else I have seen on the market

It was very nice speaking with you yesterday. As I mentioned, your Fraud Prevention Toolkit has been very helpful and has helped me begin to focus on the key areas of our business that require policies and checklists to start building our protection measures. Your workbook noted many of the methods that can be used for fraud and I now want to put together a written policy, preventive procedures and checklists to address these methods in accounting, purchasing, shipping/receiving, etc. I want to start with the obvious and most vulnerable areas first such as Bank Statement Review and approval, Bank Reconciliations, PO Review, wire transfers, etc. Once these procedures are in place, we will begin working on other areas until we have a full prevention system in place in all areas.
