Our financial highlights

Warwick Hunt, our Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner - International, presents the financial highlights for the year to June 2017. We have seen good, broadly based growth from a whole range of areas of our business despite the challenges of economic and political uncertainty. Revenues increased to £3.6 billion and our total tax contribution was over £1.16bn. Warwick’s video gives the detail, and you can find the full financial statements in the downloads section.

You can find out more about the highlights from our lines of service here.

Market segment

A major strength of our business is our balanced portfolio. In FY17, 25% of our revenue came from work with private businesses and 27% from inbound clients headquartered overseas, reflecting the benefit of a strong and connected international network.

Industry segment

Despite economic uncertainty, all of our industry groups showed growth this year. In particular, the technology, information and communications sector proved highly resilient, with significant transaction led activity in the hospitality and leisure sectors and in consumer and industrial products, we saw strong demand for business services, supply chain and cost reduction support.

Service analysis

We’ve seen continued demand for services from our non-audit clients and Mandatory Firm Rotation has brought significant opportunities and allowed us to develop new relationships.
