International Accounting

Take a break from your compliance challenges

Wouldn’t it be great to take a break from compliance challenges and let other people handle your statutory financial statements in different countries? PwC’s International Compliance Excellence Service lets you do precisely that. With the world’s leading company for the entire range of international statutory accounting services looking after this side of your business, you can get on with the tasks you do best.

Get us to standardise the way your local financial statements are prepared around the world. We will then harness potential interfaces from your ERP systems to collect the necessary data and reconcile your group GAAP (e.g. IFRS, US GAAP, etc.) to local GAAP history, and make the process of auditing local statutory financial statements more time- and cost-efficient.
