Core Assurance - Audit: Providing market-leading digitised services to an unrivalled range of clients

Our team’s audit and digital IQ reflects PwC’s continuing investments in the best people and technology to provide an exceptional, high-quality service offering fresh insights for our clients across all major industries and sectors in the Middle East. Our digitally upskilled auditors are continually looking for ways to deliver innovative solutions using AI, machine learning and other new technologies, with the integrity, independence and professional scepticism that clients expect from PwC.

Other Assurance Services:

We help our clients address and solve complex accounting and financial reporting challenges to preserve the value of their businesses. Our regional Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory Services (CMAAS) team brings a wealth of experience to providing objective advice on transaction accounting, accounting change and accounting problem-solving. 

Core professional advisory services in the Middle East include equity advisory, IPOs and debt offerings, accounting conversions and transaction accounting, accounting structuring, treasury accounting, government accounting and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM). 

The world of risk is evolving at unprecedented speed. Organisations in the Middle East, like their global peers, are vulnerable to new and developing strategic, technical, talent and reputational risks, to add to the region’s significant geopolitical and macroeconomic challenges. Our team keeps pace with these changes, advising clients both on how to defend themselves against a widening array of risks and, where possible, how to capitalise on them.

Companies face increasing pressure to promote innovation and develop new growth opportunities by harnessing the power of novel and emerging digital technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, blockchain and cloud computing. At the same time, enterprises must be aware of the potentially destructive risks that accompany digital transformation. 

Our Digital Trust services aim to help companies capture opportunities from digital development, while managing the risks of regulatory compliance, information leakage, asset theft and business interruption in the digital era.

We advise financial services clients throughout the Middle East on key strategic and operational issues such as the impact of risk and regulation, financial crime, innovation in mobile and digital technologies, the disruptive impact of fintech and changing customer needs. 

In recent years, we have invested heavily in building our technology capabilities, using proven methodologies to design and execute business transformation. Our team focuses on areas that bring the most value to our clients, including data and analytics, technology transformation and cyber-security.
