Audit & Assurance

The business environment in Greece is facing unprecedented challenges over the last few months. The global financial crisis, the local economic recession and the recent downgrades of the Greek State have increased the risks faced by companies operating in this market and have led to significant Government intervention and the introduction of new legislation and regulations. As the leading audit and assurance firm, PwC closely monitors these developments, provides critical information to investors and other stakeholders and a timely and constructive input to management. Our services are backed by our local knowledge and expertise derived from 30 years in the Greek market as well as our global experience in dealing with financial and business issues in the international environment.
