About Audit & Assurance Private

Deloitte Audit & Assurance Private delivers audit & assurance services tailored for private companies, including family-owned businesses, closely held (non-family) businesses, private equity-backed companies, and venture-capital-backed businesses. We build teams that are proficient in private company matters, have an intimate up-to-date understanding of auditing standards for private companies, and can apply experience from working with private and public companies of various sizes.

Driven to address the opportunities and challenges unique to private businesses Deloitte’s approach for private companies transforms the obligation of an audit into a business opportunity. A Deloitte audit is not a compliance exercise. It focuses on risks—things that matter—and minimizes work on what is less relevant. A high-quality audit has to be transparent, customized, and integrated in order to deliver insights that inform intelligent, real-time decisions. Our Private Company Audit Methodology incorporates workflow automation, artificial intelligence, and data analytic tools that enable us to offer valuable perspectives as we serve you now and as you grow.
