Deeper Dive — Renal Failure: A Crisis in Audit Culture?

We are excited to announce the release of “Renal Failure: A Crisis in Audit Culture?,” the third in our Deeper Dive series of reports. Just as the kidneys flush out toxins in the human body, the accounting profession, and audit firms specifically, are responsible for catching and challenging inaccurate or potentially misrepresentational data in financial statements. When either fails, the results can be ruinous.

We discuss this in light of recent misconduct scandals that have impacted all major accountancies and in most global markets. In addition to the immediate costs, such scandals threaten to erode trust in the audit function more broadly.
