BCC says improvements to audit industry are a positive step

19th March 2021

“The focus on making improvements to the audit industry is a positive step, particularly with the issues raised after a number of high-profile company collapses. However, government and regulators must tread carefully to avoid unintended consequences, including adding to the already onerous cost burden on firms and undermining the UK’s global reputation as great place to do business.”
