Drawing on its unsurpassed capabilities in financial reporting and auditing, PwC has developed a comprehensive service to assist clients report and assure non-financial information.
PwC helps both first-time and experienced reporters to define their aims, audiences and the information needs of readers in communicating non-financial information, internally and externally. We advise on the planning and development of a reporting framework and on the selection and development of key performance indicators to ensure that our clients effectively address stakeholder expectations in terms of transparency and accountability.
PwC helps companies to review and establish optimal governance structures, appropriate management systems and formalised information-collection mechanisms and processes in order to facilitate the preparation, compilation and reporting of high-quality, non-financial data and information. Our services also include the assessment of system and process readiness and effectiveness.
PwC boasts a solid reputation as an assurance provider with strong skills in applying assurance standards, developing assurance methodologies and applying non-financial content and industry-specific knowledge. In addition to reinforcing the credibility of the subject matter in question, our approach covers the performance of existing management systems and controls. As a result, we can recommend improvements to reporting systems and processes, based on both proven knowledge and best practice, and we can reduce the risk of reporting material mis-statements.
Analysis and feedback from different parties play an important part in the continuous evolution of reporting. Yet organisations are often disappointed in the amount and quality of feedback they receive from stakeholders on their reporting efforts. Combining our global reach with our experience in working with companies in the reporting of non-financial information, we offer reviews of reports and disclosures against peer-group and leading-practice reporting, which reflects current stakeholder concerns, and recommend short- and long-term improvements.
