PwC setting up a new PwC Japan May 16, 2006Posted by fukumimi in Japan, law.
PwC has announced that they are setting up a new PwC Japan audit firm, the current PwC Japan audit operations being ChuoAoyama.
They promise a new management structure, but surely we are just going to see the same accountants at the new PwC Japan. So what will really change?
Odds are they'll probably even remain at the same desks at the same offices.
Perhaps they'll use it to do a spot of spring cleaning, and get rid of some of the staff which they would have wanted to get rid of earlier were it not for the strict employment laws in Japan which make it difficult to get rid of people. ChuoAoyama would then be left with the leftovers.
