Fin-tech financial partnering:  It is not possible for a small business to acquire all the latest financial techniques as the cost aspect is involved.  Instead, they can smartly check whether their financial partners are technically advanced.  For example, availing services of a banker who uses blockchain technology for online transactions.

Automated internal controls:  Automating internal controls is a one-time investment.  But it is a very effective way to protect frauds and keep track of processes.  There are good tailor-made solutions offered by third-party vendors.  Those can be easily installed and maintained.  Most of them are user-friendly too.

Using the above 3 ways even a small business can effectively prevent frauds and save money.
