Fraud is a delibrate act done by a cunning person to mislead people about the truth and seriously hurt the intended person or organisation, which if caught, could end up in jail. 

Eg : Embezzlement / Misappropriation of cash, stealing from the company resources and showing that the stock was not received or damaged due to unknown reasons etc...

Errors (either major or minor) are made unknowingly (also called mistakes) by anyone who lacks knowledge or due to oversight on the part of the individual, which if caught, can be corrected by taking appropriate measures to prevent it from happening again. 

Eg : Typing errors, Missing out on the formula in excel etc....

Errors are just the mistake or misstatement or unintentional deviation from the truth. An act or condition of ignorant or imprudent deviation from a code of behavior. Errors aren’t deliberate. An error represents an unintentional misstatement of the financial statement. It may be material or immaterial.

Fraud can be defined as: Any illegal acts characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust. These acts are not dependent upon the application of threat or of physical force. Frauds are perpetrated by parties and organizations to obtain money, property, or services; to avoid payment or loss of services; or to secure personal or business advantage. Fraud represents an intentional misstatement of the financial statement which can be material or immaterial. Fraud takes place when you find evidence of intent to mislead. Fraud occurs when someone purposefully produces deceptive data.

What is the difference between fraud and error? The distinguishing factor between fraud and error is whether the underlying action that results in the misstatement in the financial statements is intentional or unintentional. Unlike error, fraud is intentional and usually involves deliberate concealment of the facts. Error refers to an unintentional misstatement in the financial statements, including the omission of an amount or disclosure.
