Hey Pooja congrats :), well coming to your question, it totally depends on your interests. If you want to get a diverse exposure you can go for statuory audit as you will be exposed to certain areas of company law, taxation also under it. While transfer pricing is a very promising specialisation, it is an exclusive area rather than inclusive... so evaluate your interests and aptitude towards the two offers and then decide.

Go for Transfer pricing.. as in the training period itself  its better to get a specialised knowledge. And brand name of PWC is much bigger than KPMG

All the Best

I will suggest you to go for Statutory Audit in KPMG. You will not find much work in T.P particularly during the articleship period.

See both these are among big4s so it hardly matters whether you work in KPMG or in PWC. So now what matters is your work profile. In my opinion it would be better to go for statutory audits as it will give u diverse exposure of every field be it auditing or corporate laws or be it tax laws. Here you will get vast areas to explore. On the other hand if you go for transfer pricing at PWC your work will be very concentrated to only one specific area of taxation i.e Transfer pricing. Good Luck.

Hey Pooja

Congrats on the offers received. The question you have to ask yourself is where your interest lies. As mentioned earlier, both KPMG and PWC are top firms but what is important is your inclination. Both these fields no doubt have equal importance, with Transfer Pricing being more niche area. If it was me, I would still prefer Transfer Pricing as there are not many players in this field and it definitely interests me.

I would suggest to go with "PWC" for Transfer pricing.

i suggest you go in a mid sized or smaller CA firm for your articleship......cos in big fours theres lot of specialization in every filed like in auditing comes many types like stat financial etc....n there too come sub levels like pharmaceuticals fmcg etc industry wise.....they just put you in one field and you dont get to learn different fields.....i had a frnd from a big four who had only done auditing and never prepared a tax computation in her life....plus articles have to slog like anything in big fours.....its their work culture to sit  late....also be prepared cos they wont give u any leaves for ur class or lesser leaves for youe exams....u can go for a join in big fours can opt for specialisaton after CA but for articleship u have to learn everything....all the best...

See this is my personal experience after qualifying as a CA.
The demand for Statutory audits is huge in the market.If you have done articleship from Big 4, then you will get the job easily in the market.

At the same time trf pricing is also a niche market.
But what i have personally seen is a lessor opportunities for a Trf pricing positions.
Thouhg there are vacancies for them but not as much as you have for stat audits.

Rest, just learn to go ahead with your work which you do anywhere.
It will be beneficial for you only.

Have a bright future :))
