British Land Co PLC

Change of Auditor

RNS Number : 6310Y
British Land Co PLC
28 January 2014




The British Land Company PLC announces that the Board have recommended the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as Auditor for the financial year commencing 1 April 2014. The appointment is subject to shareholder approval at the 2014 Annual General Meeting to be held in July.


Aubrey Adams, Chairman of the Audit Committee, said:

"We thank Deloitte for their contribution as the Company's Auditor and look forward to working with PwC".







Notes to the Editors

·      In the 2012 Annual Report the Audit Committee indicated that once there was clarity on auditor appointment guidance from the Financial Reporting Council and European Union it would tender the audit and that this was expected to be within the next 2 years.


·      In the 2013 Annual Report the Audit Committee confirmed that it would tender the audit in the coming year for the March 2015 financial year.


·      As part of the tender process a number of firms were approached including mid-tier firms as well as the Big Four and from this a short list was selected by the Audit Committee.  At this stage the decision was taken that Deloitte should not be invited to tender due to the longevity of their appointment having been the Company's Auditors for over 10 years.  The short listed firms then presented to the Audit Committee which resulted in a recommendation to the Board that PwC be selected as the Company Auditors for the year ended 31 March 2015.


·      There are no matters in connection with Deloitte's prospective resignation as auditors which, in the view of the Board, need to be brought to the attention of shareholders.
