The origins of Ernst & Young dates back to the founding of Harding & Pullein in England in 1845. Through a series of mergers the firm rose to prominence and established its contemporary image. The name Ernst & Young first came into use in 1989 with the merging of the two firms Arthur Young and Ernst & Whinney. In 2013, the organization underwent a rebranding, changing its company logo and adopting the abbreviation EY as its brand name. Today the company is headquartered in London, England and is a privately owned organization.

EY has four main service lines - assurance, tax, advisory and transaction advisory services. Year on year, assurance has consistently generated the most revenue for the company, followed by tax and advisory services, with transaction advisory services grossing the least revenue.
