Deloitte’s global revenues are up by 8.45% to reach $28.8bn (£18.7bn), the firm’s highest rate of growth in the past three years.
Income from financial advisory work saw a 15.1% rise, compared with 14.9% in consulting. Revenue from tax services grew 5.2%, while audit and enterprise risk services rose 4.7%.
The Asia-Pacific region was the fastest-growing area for a seventh straight year, with growth of more than 25% at member firms in Australia and India, Deloitte said.
