Third-party assurance

PwC’s Third-Party Assurance services are an objective way to build better, more trusting relationships between your organisation and others.

Improving partnerships the Kiwi way

How many third parties does your business rely on? How many businesses rely on you? Organisations are always exploring new ways to solve complex issues, and one of the most common approaches today is to partner with others towards a common goal.

Suppliers, distributors, outsourced service providers, investors and many others make up a complex web of relationships, meaning your reputation is not always in your hands. 

Third-party assurance is a signal to your partners (and potential partners) that you are operating in a way that protects their reputational value, and investigating whether they’re the right fit for your goals, too.

How PwC can help

PwC’s risk assurance team are highly experienced in managing third-party relationships. As an independent eye, we can attain an impression of the strength of your internal controls and associated business processes and operations, helping you to position above your competitors and signals a commitment to maintaining a sound control environment.

Ultimately, we aim to increase transparency and build better levels of trust between parties – two things that have gotten New Zealand organisations where they are today. When opportunities arise to improve the way parties work together, third-party assurance is designed to bring it to the table.
