PricewaterhouseCoopers, or PwC, is a big company that provides professional services. It is one of the four largest accounting firms in the world, along with Deloitte, EY, and KPMG. PwC has offices in 157 countries and more than 300 000 workers.[3]

PwC was formed in 1998 when two accounting firms, Coopers & Lybrand and Price Waterhouse, joined together. Both of these firms started in the 1800s. In 2010, the company changed its name to PwC.

There is a main office for PwC in London, England. This office helps all the PwC firms around the world work together. It makes sure they follow the same rules and plans, but it doesn't work with clients directly.
