Launch of market study

9 October 2018: The CMA has launched a market study into the statutory audit market in the UK. We are focusing on 3 sets of issues:

  • choice and switching
  • the long-term resilience of the sector
  • the incentives between audited companies, audit firms and investors

We are inviting comments on the issues raised in the invitation to comment, including from interested parties such as audit firms, audited companies and shareholders and investors.
