- Big Four in China | China Accounting Blog | Paul Gillis – The Big Four firms have a number of foreign partners (including Hong Kong and Taiwan partners) who have worked in China for many years. Granting a Chinese CPA license to some of these long serving partners based on recognizing their foreign credentials might offer a solution that meets everyone’s objectives. Such a plan could allow the Hong Kong partners to retain control of the firms for a few more years. This would allow the Hong Kong partners to finish out their careers, and also allow local partners to gain further experience to prepare them for the future leadership of the firms. From the perspective of Chinese regulators, this is a pragmatic solution. This approach puts in place a structure that assures there will be a transfer of control of the Big Four into local hands in a reasonable period of time.
The Big Four have been close-mouthed about their plans. They argue that they are a private business and that the public has no right to know what they will do. I disagree. The Big Four play a key role in the integrity of our financial markets. They play that role because society has given them a near monopoly on auditing public companies. The price of that monopoly is transparency.
