Thank you for your post. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns. I do apologize, I am unclear as to your question. Are you asking if it is generally a good thing or bad if assets are found, or did I misunderstand your question?

Any forensic accountant has ability to find hidden assets ?
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 2 years ago.
Hi, That is really tough to answer with certainty. That very much depends on the skill of the accountant and the sophistication of how the assets were hidden. It is true that forensic accountants are far better at finding such assets, but there is no guarantee that they will. Even then, the accountant can usually show where the money went but not the next step, so if the funds were transferred out and went elsewhere, the step after the transfer is not always able to be found.

According to firensic accountant, they check hidden assets by looking computer acces and smart phone. Still some assets are no tabke to find it?
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 2 years ago.
That is correct, Keiko, not everything can be found. But yes, they generally can at least find what is missing, and possibly the last place where it went. So for example if $10,000 was shunted to a new account, they might not be able to know where the money went after it hit that account, but they can show that the funds went there.
