"Deloitte" is the brand under which tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in independent firms throughout the world collaborate to provide audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management and tax services to selected clients. These firms are members of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu (‘DTT’), a Swiss Verein. Each member firm provides services in a particular geographic area and is subject to the laws and professional regulations of the particular country or countries in which it operates. DTT helps coordinate the activities of the member firms but does not itself provide services to clients. DTT and the member firms are separate and distinct legal entities, which cannot obligate the other entities. DTT and each DTT member firm are only liable for their own acts or omissions, and not those of each other. Each DTT Member Firm is structured differently in accordance with national laws, regulations, customary practice and other factors, and may secure the provision of professional services in their territories through subsidiaries, affiliates and/or other entities.
Deloitte LLP is the United Kingdom member firm of DTT (including Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man).
With 12,000 exceptional people across the UK (including Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man) and Switzerland, Deloitte has the broadest and deepest range of skills of any business advisory organisation, and we have a straightforward goal: to be recognised as the pre-eminent and most trusted professional services firm, famous for the calibre of our people and respected for the exceptional quality of our work.
The relentless pursuit of the highest quality in our professional work remains one of the cornerstones in our firm’s continuing success. Our focus on quality in everything we do encompasses the values of our people. Nowhere is this more important than in our work on audit assignments where we recognise the public interest in maintaining standards and objectivity. We do not take for granted the trust placed in Deloitte by clients and the wider business community, and sustaining this trust rests with every individual – at every level – within our firm.
At Deloitte we foster a collaborative culture where talented individuals can produce their best work. We value innovative thinking, diverse insights and we strive to offer an exceptional level of customer service through our expertise and professionalism
Our people continue to contribute extensively to the wider community and through the Deloitte Foundation we are leading two new community initiatives that will support the disabled in sport and build employability skills for young people.
We believe that a key factor in our continued success is structuring our services to match the key challenges faced by our clients.
Today our clients’ key challenges are: Financial reporting and delivering shareholder value; Governance, security and risk, regulation and compliance; Globalisation; Demographic challenge and the talent agenda; Industry consolidation and Performance optimisation through alternative business models. We recognise the need to innovate constantly to respond to rapidly changing issues. Our deep industry skills combine with service line specialists to meet our clients’ needs.
We also seek to innovate in how our clients can access our expertise. This year we launched the Deloitte Academy, which is designed to provide support and guidance to Boards and individual directors. The Deloitte Academy is in direct response to the demands, challenges and increased accountability for those who manage and govern. Deloitte draws on its expert teams to give public company directors and other senior figures in business and the public sector access to a wide-ranging programme of technical briefing, education and training.
In May 2006 John Connolly was elected to lead the firm for a third term and our leadship has been reshaped to meet the market challenges ahead and our continued investment in quality and people.
