Agreed Upon Procedures Service
Assurance of differing circumstances is provided between companies, as well as for their investors, shareholders and even their stakeholders: these include interim balance sheets for purchase contracts, appropriate profit forecasts in corporate reporting, adequate controls in service centres and sustained development. Non-audit services by PwC Romania experts and the reports they issue signalize and confirm to those concerned the reliability of the other parties involved.
We tailor our special services to suit your needs – depending on the information concerned, the level of reliability you require and the expectations of the recipient for whom you intend or are having to provide this information:
- Verification of financial information (cash flow, EBITDA, borrowing costs, expenses incurred, prices, share options, etc.);
- Verification of compliance with bank covenants;
- Review of management’s financial key performance indicators (KPIs);
- Verification of management accounts;
- Verification of special financial information for regulatory reporting;
- Stock-taking procedures;
- The report will indicate only the factual findings from performing the specified procedures, including exceptions and misstatements found.

European Funds and State Aids
The projects funded through non-reimbursable financing, either from European Union funds or from Government grants, must comply with the applicable legislation in order to ensure the eligibility of the related declared costs. This can be achieved through a rigorous financial project management and through audits designed to specifically address the areas of risks on your projects. It is crucial that a thorough analysis is performed on a timely basis on the costs to be declared to the grantors, in order to avoid the risks of ineligibility.
Our PwC Romania EU Funds team can offer professional audit and consulting services tailored to your particular needs, both private and public sectors.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to assess transactions and their reporting consequences.
The accounting effects of transactions such as acquisitions, divestitures, formation of joint ventures and special purpose vehicles (for instance for leases or factoring) and other forms of collaboration (joint R&D) are challenging. These influence reporting, future results and have an effect on significant indices such as control quantities such as EBITDA, return on sales, or return on capital employed.
However, any assessment of upcoming issues needs to be carried out before the transaction, as these issues may have impact on the transaction as a whole. A transaction’s impact on accounting should be clear before contracts are signed.

Financial and accounting tools
In today's highly digitized world, full or partial IT support is indispensable in many areas. IT solutions are also required for rapid, accurate and efficient execution of accounting tasks and financial statement preparation.
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has issued rules for the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF). The new regulation was published in the Official Journal of the European Union 29 May 2019. EU-regulated listed companies must produce their annual reports in the eXtensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) for reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2020 and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) reporters must use Inline XBRL (iXBRL) to make the consolidated data in the primary financial statements machine-readable.
Companies will need to create tags if they have entity-specific disclosures, for which tags are not available in the ESEF taxonomy. New technical functionality called ‘anchoring’ has been devised to make it easier to understand such XBRL extensions. You can learn more by watching our anchoring webcast. ESEF is already a hot topic for preparers of annual reports and may disrupt the supplier landscape and your current processes.
We are creating new solutions in the public sector using our international experience and long-term knowledge of the Romanian environment.
We work on a wide range of public sector themes. Our clients are most often ministries, state owned companies, organizations, municipalities, research and educational institutions.
1. Public Transportation
Starting with 2019, at national level, the EC Regulation no. 1370/2007 enters into force. This requires both municipalities and local public transportation operators to comply gradually with the new regulation requirements.
PwC Romania can offer services to both Municipalities and public transportation operators designed to address the requirements of the Regulation: a proper settlement between the parties (calculation of cost/kilometre), procedures for ongoing monitoring, both operational and financial, etc.
