At PwC, our purpose statement is to build trust in society and solve important problems. To us, these are not just words. We are a network of firms in 157 countries with more than 276,000 people who are committed to delivering quality in assurance, advisory and tax services.
We believe that auditing is a noble profession, underpinned by the need for trust in the capital markets and in the quality of our audits. We approach our profession as “One Firm,” enabling us to use the resources and technologies from our non-audit disciplines to benefit audit quality. Our Advisory and Tax lines support our audits in areas such as information systems, cybersecurity threats, valuations, and complex tax matters. As “One Firm,” we bring our full capabilities and insights to our audits when and where they are needed and appropriate. Please see PwC’s Our focus on audit quality report for additional details on our approach and practices related to audit quality.
