At PwC, we understand that as private companies your needs and requirements are different from public entities — audit requirements, stakeholders, and ownership structures are just a few of those differences. As a result, we have our Private Company Services (PCS), a national practice designed to meet your company’s specific needs.
We provide a streamlined approach to audits. We understand how your stakeholders use financial statements and focus our audit based on what is relevant to them. We have developed sophisticated tools that drive efficiencies and work collaboratively with you to identify ways to strengthen business processes and financial effectiveness. Our partners and staff are experienced in working with private companies and their owners and tailoring our services to their unique needs.
Emerging technologies have revolutionized many aspects of business, and the audit is no different.
At PwC, we are tech-enabling the audit, matching emerging technology with the skills of our people to dramatically shift how we work. Our award-winning auditing tools help to shift manual tasks to machines, allowing us to focus more on areas of higher risk and deliver new insights.
Our people and approach are critical to this development. Technology is just the enabler. We call it “human and machine collaboration” - and this combination is far stronger than either one alone.
We're proud to have been recognized for the second year running with the prestigious Audit Innovation of the Year award by the International Accounting Bulletin.

This is particularly true of fast-growth companies; as the size and structure of an organization rapidly changes, management will often be faced with unfamiliar challenges and opportunities. In many situations, the benefit of experience can mean the difference between success and failure.
We understand that the audit requirements are different for private companies. Using a streamlined approach to audits, our sophisticated tools drive efficiencies and create a collaborative working relationship.
