Deloitte receives pay rise as RBS auditor

Big Four firm pockets £58.8 million in fees as bank is bailed out

Royal Bank of Scotland paid its auditor Deloitte £58.8 million in fees just
as the UK tax payer stepped in to prevent the ailing lender from collapse, the
Herald has revealed.

Deloitte was handed a £27.4 million pay rise on top of the 31.4 million in
fees it earned in 2007, according to RBS’ most recent annual report.

When Deloitte signed off on the troubled institution’s accounts in 2008, it
did not qualify its audit opinion on any grounds, the report shows.

The firm will be recommended for re-appointment as auditor when the bank’s
shareholders convene for their annual meeting on April 3.

Part of Deloitte’s increased fee revenue is due to RBS expanding in size
after swallowing parts of ABN Amro in 2007. Besides the audit, Deloitte was paid
£20.1 million for other services provided to RBS.
