Financial statement audit services

The financial statement audit evolved for your changing business needs. That's Tomorrow's audit, today.

The new equation of people + technology

Quality first, purpose always. That’s what drives us today and it’s how we’re bringing audit into the future. Blending industry leading technologies, innovative thinking and focused knowledge, we design, build and implement an evolved audit with the power to build trust in a changing world. We lead the profession in digitizing the audit, recognizing the important balance between human + tech to bring deeper business insights.

Quality is the bedrock of building trust- and we are leading the profession

Audit quality is foundational to establishing trust in the capital markets. Building on our exemplary record from last year, PwC has delivered sustained, profession-leading audit quality results in the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s (PCAOB) annual inspection.* Driven by a quality-first, independence-minded focus, your diverse PwC team delivers an audit experience that aligns simplification, standardization, specialization and automation to enhance audit quality. 

*Only two 2020 audit engagements of the 56 that were subject to inspection is included in Part I.A. of our 2021 PCAOB inspection report, dated Nov. 4, 2022.

Audit insights that generate new ways of thinking

Having built the largest Trust Solutions practice in the world, we will bring you holistic, seamless, and coordinated perspectives — through and beyond the audit — covering your key priorities. That means unique audit leadership and access to specialists in areas including, but not limited to, ESG, human capital, cybersecurity, cloud, AI, valuation, and tax.
