Audit & Assurance
Accounting firms offer a wide range of professional services to their clients, including audit, review, other assurance, and related services. These services are regulated, with many jurisdictions requiring compliance with international standards or national requirements that have been based on international ones. High-quality international standards increase the comparability, consistency, clarity, credibility, and transparency of financial information. And, high-quality financial information, in turn, increases the stability of the global financial infrastructure. See the full overview.
