Deloitte Surpassed $43 Billion in Global Revenue in Fiscal Year 2018

The numbers are in, the press release is out, and the words “exceptional,” “unrelenting,” and “quality and distinction” were used by Deloitte’s No. 1 cheerleader, Global CEO Punit Renjen, to describe the firm’s 2018 fiscal year.

EY Reports FY14 Revenues, Makes It Rain on New Audit Toys

Fresh off Deloitte's announcement, EY reported FY14 revenues and — shock! — everything is looking good. Not quite Deloitte-level good but they've still got a few more years before 2020, which is the year they plan to take over professional services.

Did you wake up this morning and think "gee, I really would love to know how much Big 4 firms make from consulting as share of overall revenue!" Boy, are you in luck. A recent report called Cheques and the City by the non-partisan but totally hater-y High Pay Centre looks at the top accounting […]

If you recall, Chez Salzberg put up a good number, $32.4 billion in global revenues to be precise. PwC, as we mentioned this morning, came in at $32.1 billion so yes, that puts Deloitte on top of the Big 4 heap again after it's one-year wonder back in FY10.  In such a tight race, every […]

KPMG’s Audit Business Is Back on Life Support

Last night we finally learned KPMG's revenue results for FY 2012 and they were…UGH. Leave it to my former employer to set me up and allow me to make a prediction that was DOOMED to be wrong.

KPMG Will Probably Jump Ernst & Young in Revenues This Year
