As described in the company’s Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2020, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP has now been appointed as the auditor of Bupa Finance plc, and KPMG LLP (“KPMG”) has ceased to hold office.
Bupa Finance plc has received a statement from KPMG in accordance with section 519 of the Companies Act 2006, which confirms that KPMG ceased to hold office following completion of a competitive tender process for the audit of the Bupa Group, in which KPMG did not participate due to mandatory auditor rotation requirements.
A copy of the statement received from KPMG has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism where it will be available for inspection shortly at: https://data.fca.org.uk/artefacts/NSM/Portal/NI-000026656/NI-000026656.pdf
