No accident?

TS has heard on the wind that the Big Four are a little more sympathetic to each other’s plight than you may initially think.

Despite joint liquidator Begbies’ success in gaining ‘unfettered’ access to KPMG’s audit files on claims company The Accident Group, fellow joint liquidator PricewaterhouseCoopers was a bit more ‘reticent’ in fighting for exposure, according to those in the know. Apparently PwC, also known to work on an audit or two, baulked at pushing for another auditor to be ‘laid bare’.

Nice to know the big boys (and girls) can be friendly to each other sometimes?
