Deloitte has developed new audit software labeled Auvenir. They will begin offering this audit software to smaller audit firms in order to help them audit.

KPMG's trouble in South Africa have gotten worse if you can believe that. They are losing more clients and incurring more investigations. 

First the independent regulatory board for auditors has started an investigation into KPMG. 

The audit by the IRBA in south Africa isn’t he only investigation she is dealing. She also has to deal with an investigation by KPMG international and an investigation from the south African institute of charted accountants.

In addition to multiple investigations KPMG South Africa’s new CEO will also have to deal with the loss of more clients. KPMG has lost additional clients in south Africa over the past week.

Munich Re dropped KPMG in Africa as their auditor. This was just announced on October 2, 2017. Munich RE is one of the largest reinsurance companies in the world. This comes after many other firms in south Africa have already fired KPMG as their auditors. The reserve bank in Africa has cautioned companies from firing KPMG as they are one of only 4 large audit firms remaining in the world.

Additionally, the south African parliament said that they are cutting ties with KPMG as well. KPMG audited the governments medical plans. This isn’t the only thing they might lose from the parliament. Parliament said they are reviewing other work performed by KPMG as well.

Listen to our past podcast about KPMG South Africa's troubles.

What would the world look like without the big 4 accounting firms - PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, and EY. KPMG recently had a huge scandal in South Africa that is threatening their existence. They are losing clients and are looking at losing their ability to perform any work at all in South Africa. What if more countries treated the big 4 the way that South Africa is treating KPMG?

All eyes were on EY after what happened at the 2017 Oscars. As you may or may not remember Pricewaterhousecoopers botched the 2017 Oscars. The two partners Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan got the envelope for best picture mixed up. They awarded the Oscar to La La Land when it should have gone to moonlight. They ended up correcting the matter but not before PwC’s reputation was permanently damaged. There was also some worry as to whether PwC would lose the engagement, but PwC leadership got involved and they were able to retain the engagements.

 So entering the 2017 Emmy’s there was so much spotlight on the EY accountants, but it appears like the night went off without a hitch. There was a lot of joking around and reference to EY though. That isn’t a bad thing. Having focus on you for the entirety of the show was free advertising for Ernst and Young. They can thank PwC for that.
