So BDO Isn’t That Good at Auditing Either, But Still Better Than Grant Thornton

Now this is just getting funny. And by funny I mean sad.

The PCAOB has released its 2012 inspection report on BDO and the news isn't nearly as bad as it was for Grant Thornton so, well, there's that. Which really isn't much when you think about it but… hey… gotta take what you can get, I suppose.

If you're playing along at home, here are the 2012 inspection report failure rates released so far:

  • Grant Thornton 65%
  • BDO 55%
  • EY 48%
  • PwC 39%
  • KPMG 34%
  • Deloitte 25%

Crowe Horwath and McGladrey are still outstanding.

Congratulations, BDO, for not being the suckiest at audits! Close one, eh?
