Abstract

Current research has verified the hypotheses of identifying the risks of financial statement manipulation in a case study of five accounting periods using the CFEBT model within the Czech Accounting Standards for different options of using creative accounting methods. Furthermore, the results CFEBT models in each case study are compared with results of the Beneish mode.  The model of CFEBT confirmed positive results of  the Beneish model  for the used technique of windows dressing in terms of the Czech Accounting Standards.

The following paper further analyzes and evaluates techniques and tools to identify risks of manipulated financial statements using the most important methods of creative accounting and accounting fraud in the CFEBT mode, the Beneish model, the Jones model of  Nondiscretionary Accruals in comparison with the results of the Altman's model of financial health.
