PwC, Deloitte, EY and KPMGAustralian Federal Police

Australian government now run by the corrupt Big 4 Consulting firms – PwC, Deloitte, EY and KPMG. How many $billions have they stolen and helped others steal?

The big four accounting / consulting firms PwC, Deloitte, EY and KPMG have likely cost Australia $billions of dollars via over charging state and federal governments and aiding abetting national and foreign companies with tax avoidance which is stealing from the Australian public.

Video below shows the contempt that 2 of those companies’ management have for the government and accountability.

The corruption by the big four accounting / consulting firms PwC, Deloitte, EY and KPMG was exposed recently, at least in part, with the PWC tax scam where they were paid to help the federal government draft tax laws to make foreign companies pay more tax while at the same time PWC was advising those same companies on how to avoid the tax.

The Australian Senate set up the “Inquiry into management and assurance of integrity by consulting services (Consulting services)” which is in effect an inquiry into corruption by EY, Deloitte, KPMG and PwC. The inquiry is due to publish it’s final report by the 30th of November 2023.

On Monday and Tuesday, the Senate Inquiry had public hearings and the below video is a must watch as it shows Deloitte Chairperson Tom Imbesi and Ernst and Young CEO David Larocca showing total contempt for the Senate Inquiry which is ultimately showing total contempt for the Australian public.

In the video Deloitte Chairperson Tom Imbesi insists he must first “check with the Department” to see if they agree to be named at the Senate Inquiry regarding suspected corruption and Ernst and Young CEO David Larocca refuses to give the Senate Inquiry important information regarding EY partner’s pay.

In some ways it is easy to understand why Deloitte Chairperson Tom Imbesi and Ernst and Young CEO David Larocca are so arrogant, think they run the show and are above accountability. They know the AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw in up to his neck in the corruption at PWC, so he is unlikely to take any real action.

I published an article on the 28th of May 2023 titled “AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw and former NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller set to cover-up the PwC tax dodging scandal” which starts off:

AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw and former NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller, who now works for PwC, have already had private communication about the PwC tax dodging scandal that is now being investigated by the federal police.

Kershaw and Fuller have a history of working together to cover-up government corruption, but more on that in a minute.

Mick Fuller is his role as a partner at PwC is currently doing work reviewing ACT Policing which is a branch of the AFP. PwC has current contracts with the AFP such as a $5.9 million contract with PwC for software and support services. (Click here to read more)

In the below video (28/5/23) Senator David Shoebridge asks Reece Kershaw about his friendship with Mick Fuller and if he had declared the conflict. Reece Kershaw’s arrogant response is disturbing. Also, there is video of Reece Kershaw refusing to answer questions in March 2020 about the Angus Taylor document fraud.

On the 22nd on June I published the below video titled “AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw’s secret meetings with PwC Partner Mick Fuller over $750k contract”. In the video Senator David Shoebridge reveals more secret meetings between AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw and his friend and former NSW Police Commissioner and now PwC Partner Mick Fuller over a $750,000 taxpayer funded contract.

The SMH reported (22/6/23):

Greens senator David Shoebridge has raised conflict-of-interest concerns about the dealings between Australian Federal Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw and former NSW police commissioner Mick Fuller, alleging that their personal relationship could jeopardise the criminal investigation into the PwC tax scandal.

Shoebridge said documents he received in response to a Senate order seeking all communications between the AFP commissioner and Fuller since July last year highlighted that Kershaw had five meetings with Fuller over a lucrative contract handed to PwC.

Fuller, a friend of Kershaw, joined PwC as a partner in March 2022. The documents, cited by Shoebridge, reveal a text message between Fuller and Kershaw before their first meeting on July 28 to scope out the work and determine whether PwC could deliver on the contract, an ACT policing review.

“I think I’m booked in to see you with PwC in a few weeks. Will call you before if [sic] okay,” Fuller said in a text sent to Kershaw on July 14.

“Good plan,” Kershaw replied. (Click here to read more)

The Greens have apparently referred the PWC scandal to the National Anti-Corruption Commission which could and should include the dealings between AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw and Mick Fuller.

For AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw, Deloitte Chairperson Tom Imbesi and Ernst and Young CEO David Larocca to act in the ignorant, contemptuous and arrogant manner at Senate hearings in the above videos shows they don’t care about or respect the Senators or accountability and that they believe they are the ones running the government.

As I said in the first video, only a Royal Commission might hold them to account at least to some degree because at the moment they see themselves as untouchable.

  1. Hi
    Can you please enable sharing your articles to Threads?
    This piece is a particularly interesting though worrying article.

    • Hi, because Threads is new there is not a Threads sharing button to add. Just copy the article link and paste it on Threads and you can copy and paste the title as well if you want. That’s what I have been doing. When there is a Threads sharing button I will add it.

  2. Nothing surprising here, reason Australia is in list of 20 most corrupt countries in the world…must be a challenge to reach top 5, we’re certainly heading in that direction which started off with king of rorts, the most Honourable Johhny Howard, who was once described by his own AG, most Honourable Senator Brandis as ‘the lying rodent”, ever since both sides of Parliament have continued along the same corrupt path, full credit to Greens Senator Shoebridge for exposing these grubs, pity Senator Rex was not returned to the Senate, about the only two worth their positions.

  3. Exploitation (Piracy)

    A culture of exploitation rewards an environment where the pirate thrives, where the society is fixated upon speculation, gambling and the exploitation of its natural resources in order to maximise profit, without reference to sustainability or to the negative impacts upon the families and communities who live within its realm.

    Creation (Social Development)

    A culture of creation rewards a world where the artisan thrives, where the society directs its energies towards the activities of making and creating (Manufacturing). A creative culture ensures that its laws respect family and community as the essential ingredient required to grow and maintain a healthy society.

    The Australian Judicial, a construct of Piracy:

    A culture of Piracy has no respect for family or community, a culture of Piracy has no need for a treaty with the first peoples of the land as this would impede the process of exploitation.

    “A pirate ship on land exploits the environment and the citizens that make a nation. It can be viewed as the Judicial structure where the pirates who run the ship are the lawyers; when the ship is run in the interest of plunder and piracy. As it is they who constructed the ship, without respect for family and community. With the intent to commit acts of piracy that necessitates genocide. So of course the captain of the pirate ship The High Court of Australia can never admit to the intent; as the devil is a liar!”

  4. The trouble is this has been going on for years and I am sure ( no evidence) that Morrison has opened a lot of doors for these crooks, would not be surprised if he still gets some sort of payment from these lot. All of those that were serving Morrison is now time to stand up and say something, they all know just how things were set up and still set up. This and much more is why most people do not trust anyone in office… We really are a mini America with a sleepy Joe running this country. Corruption is ripe here! But you have to be someone with power the hard working small guy stands no chance.

  5. I`ve always suspected that the accountants and lawyers in the public service who draft new tax bills always make sure there are loopholes for their outside fellow professionals to exploit. Either that, or they are as dumb as can be and should never have been hired in the first place. Neither major party has ever shown any real attempt to close the holes.
