EY picks up Share audit from Deloitte

EY has picked up the audit of retail stockbrokers Share from Deloitte following a tender process.

Deloitte received £22,104 for the audit of the company’s 2014 annual accounts, according to Share’s latest financial statement.

“The company would again like to thank Deloitte, its previous auditors, for the high quality audit services provided over the years,” Share said in a statement.

Share, formerly The Share Centre, was established in February 1994 as the parent company for a number of subsidiaries engaged in stockbroking related activities.

EY’s assurance revenues grew 6.4% to £585m for the year ending 3 July 2015, which included new audit clients such as the BBC, Co-operative Bank, Sainsbury’s and Royal Dutch Shell. Financial accounting and forensic services also drove growth in the division.

Audit was static for Deloitte in the last financial year, up just 0.3% to £708m.
