Quality is at the heart of what we do. Combining passionate people with leading technology, we work together to build trust in society. We put the team first and solve important problems by challenging the organisations we audit and being open to challenge ourselves. We take pride in our work and the profession, recognising audit as a deep specialism.

About our team
PwC’s XBRL team has a strong track record of launching innovative services to help companies address the ever changing regulatory and financial reporting environment.
Digital reporting has become a key feature in the regulatory landscape. Having easy access to machine-readable financial data makes it easier for regulators and other stakeholders to make comparisons across peers and sectors.
Our team is well known and established in this market. The team’s HMRC managed tagging service has delivered thousands of sets of financial statements tagged in machine readable format.
From 2021, UK listed companies have had to publish their annual reports in a machine-readable format (iXBRL) commonly known as the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF). The XBRL team has launched a suite of market leading services from training, blueprinting, review and vendor selection services for our non-audit clients and assurance services for our audit clients as they navigate the requirements of this mandate.
The team are recruiting senior associates to join our growing and high performing team to support our ambitious growth plans.
