PwC Australia gave clients other than Google
PwC Australia gave multiple clients confidential information leaked from Australian government tax briefings, the company said on Wednesday, the first admission that clients other than Google received leaked government tax plans.
A former partner at the "big four" firm in 2015 gave two clients confidential information about the start date of a new tax law targeting multinational companies, PwC Australia said on Wednesday.
"Various other updates we can chat about if you get a moment," the former partner wrote in an email to an unnamed multinational client.
Reuters in July revealed one of the clients PwC Australia shared confidential information with was Google but the company declined to name any clients in the report, citing confidentiality. The firm says clients were not told the information was confidential.
