NA&Co. is a member practice of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, the world’s largest, so far, while P&A is a member of the Grant Thornton International Ltd.
In the current Philippine audit practice, SyCip Gorres Velayo & Co. (EY) leads serving 40% of the market. Coming in next were Manabat Sanagustin & Co. (KPMG) with 10.9% and Isla Lipana (PwC) with 10.6%.
In the global audit practice, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu tops, followed by, in chronological order, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young and KPMG, known as the big Four (Big 4). Continue reading
