Audit and assurance
Our member firms audit many of the world’s best-known industrial manufacturing companies and thousands of other organisations both large and small. Our audit approach, at the leading edge of best practice, is tailored to suit the size and nature of your organisation and draws upon our extensive industry knowledge.
As Industrial Products companies have grown, so has the underlying complexity in their business, often resulting in overly complex legal structures and less efficient operating and tax models with higher global compliance costs and risks. PwC offers industry tailored services in corporate simplification, including simplifying statutory reporting processes, operating/management models, legal entity structures, and business models for tax optimisation.
At PwC we provide a full range of transaction services, assisting on acquisitions, divestitures, carve-outs and many other transactions. Whatever your requirement – be it Strategy, Financial Due Diligence, Private Equity, Corporate Finance, Technical Accounting, Reporting and Auditing, M&A pre- and post–transaction services, international tax planning or risk management – we have a team in place to assist you. We also provide cost effective solutions to help emerging players from the BRIC countries understand new manufacturing markets, barriers and risk of entry, and challenges of doing business in new markets.
Manufacturing organisations engage our Consulting specialists to help design, manage and execute lasting performance improvement. Our Operational Effectiveness experts - many directly from industry - draw on skills in operations, people, technology, finance and risk management to advise and implement lean manufacturing and cost reduction programmes - locally and globally.
People and change
Getting the best from people at every level when there is constant change is the key to sustainable competitive advantage. Solid strategies, processes and technology alone do not deliver results. It takes people to accept, adopt, drive, and sustain the change to realise tangible impact. Success in business hinges on strategic agility and the ability to execute.
