PwC is the leading and largest professional services organisation in Malta, providing industry-focused assurance, tax and advisory services to enhance value to clients. The firm assists clients in planning, selecting, and implementing business solutions. It provides such services as part of business improvement assignments focusing more on the strategic business needs and the realisation of business benefits.
