What is “Tomorrow's audit, today?”

The new equation of people + technology

PwC's bold vision for the future of audit is built around an innovative approach that combines digital know-how and human ingenuity, powered by the best tech in the business. We are leading the profession in digitizing the audit, recognizing the importance of the balance between human and machine. We designed our approach to keep pace as your organization evolves, delivering profession-leading quality you can trust.

Who makes up the audit team?

Our auditors will bring much more than a propensity for numbers and an aptitude for innovation. They create authentic relationships with you through balanced perspectives, straight-talk and a transparent approach. Your audit team delivers quality with deep technical accounting and audit acumen and is digitally upskilled to develop and deploy automations that drive innovation customized to your audit. Our values help define PwC and guide us to make a meaningful difference with our clients — and in the world at large. And we do it every day: through the choices we make and the actions we take.

What technology is used in the audit?

Trust in audit quality — a profession-leading achievement

We just earned the best results ever reported for any firm in the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s (PCAOB) annual inspection — an amazing achievement of 98% of audits without deficiencies.* Driven by a quality-first, independence-oriented mindset, your PwC team delivers an audit experience that focuses on simplification, standardization, specialization and automation to enhance audit quality —  through our new equation of people + tech.

*Only one 2019 audit engagement of the 58 that were subject to inspection is included in Part I.A. of our 2020 PCAOB inspection report, dated Sept. 30, 2021.
