In addition, the main methods of corporate fraud are identified. The research methodology was based on the main regulatory legal framework controlling the specified subject area. Based on the results of the study, a refined procedure for detecting fraud and distortion was developed and a model for detecting fraud was developed. A study conducted by the authors revealed that only the regulator and then the law enforcement agencies can give an unambiguous interpretation of actions on fraud and falsification of data in the financial statements of financial sector organizations. But at the same time, the presence of “stop factors” in the organization’s work, signaling signs of fraud and falsification of data in the financial statements, allows to quickly pause the production and business activities of investors and counterparties with this financial institution and avoid larger losses. It is concluded that in the current system of economic control, a number of areas that need significant changes are clearly distinguished.
