Celebrating 100 years of trusted service

Isla Lipana & Co./PwC Philippines

Isla Lipana & Co., the Philippine member firm of the PwC network, celebrates its 100th year, marking a century of delivering quality in assurance, advisory and tax services in the Philippines.


On 22 June 1922, Scottish accountants Charles P. White and Percival S. Page established White, Page & Co., one of the earliest accounting firms in the country. The firm had undergone several name changes since Flipinos took the helm at the end of the second World War. From 1964, Joaquin Cunanan & Co. became a brand associated with quality and integrity for over 40 years. The legacy remains with Isla Lipana & Co., the name we adopted in 2005.

The firm became the first local accounting firm to have international affiliation when it was designated as the official Price Waterhouse correspondent in the Philippines in 1958. On 1 July 1998, the merger of two venerable firms — Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand — created PwC.
