PwC ditches audit for Rosslyn partnership, as Grant Thornton steps in

PwC – the UK’s most dominant audit player – has resigned its role of auditor at Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) to avoid any potential conflicts of interests after both parties announced they had begun discussions over a potential joint business arrangement.

Grant Thornton has stepped in to fill the vacuum after being appointed by RDT’s board. GT will act as auditors for the cloud-based enterprise data analytics outfit for the financial year ending 30 April 2015.

Charles Clark, CEO of RDT, said: “Having built a strong and trusted relationship with our PwC audit team over the last two years we will greatly miss their extremely valuable service. However, as we hope that in the future we may be able to work together with PwC as a business partner it makes sense to recognise this potential future conflict now and make the necessary adjustments. I look forward to keeping you up to date on progress.

“Despite these necessary changes we greatly look forward to building an equally strong relationship with Grant Thornton in the months ahead.”
