$50,000 insurance cost: working with a service provider that does not have enough insurance or their insurance has lapsed and you didn’t know or follow up. A big hit to your deductible of $50,000 or more.

$250,000 stolen: bogus suppliers and invoices are set up by one department and automatically paid by another. Expected loss of could be as high as $1,200,000.

$130,000 extra cost: Working with a supplier that goes bankrupt and you have the wrong HST on file with an incorrect company legal name. Payment due to the government 13% of paid transactions.
