Who is the Big 4 Public Accounting Winner?
Is it PwC, Deloitte, E&Y, or KPMG?
Ernst & Young LLP has been Apple Inc.'s independent auditors since 2009. Previously they used KPMG. I was surprised when I saw that E&Y also audits Google! It looks like Ernst & Young has been auditing Google for quite sometime now - at least since 2007.
What about Facebook? Who audits Facebook? Take a wild guess. If you guessed Ernst & Young, you guessed correctly.
What about Microsoft and Linkedin? Deloitte audits both after Microsoft bought Linkedin.
Out of the four companies we looked at, three of them are audited by Ernst & Young. While only one was audited by Deloitte. None by KPMG or PwC.
