Fines for audit failures may be increasing with PwC landed  a record £5.1m fine for the RSM Tenon audit, and another £5m for failures over Connaught, while Deloitte was given a £4m fine for Aero Inventory audit failures and Grant Thornton a £2.2m fine for AssetCo but there are serious questions about the scale and size of penalties, how they are dished out and the rationale for how the audit regulator, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) sets them.
