Grant Thornton International is a global organization of accounting and consulting member firms which provide assurance, tax and specialist advisory services (SAS) to privately held businesses, public interest entities, and public sector entities. Grant Thornton International Ltd is a not-for-profit, non-practicing, international umbrella membership entity organized as a private company limited by guarantee. Grant Thornton is incorporated in London, United Kingdom, and has no share capital.

According to Grant Thornton International, member firms within the global organization operate in over 100 countries. Member firm fee income rose by 14% in 2008 to US$4 billion. There are over 2,600 member firm partners and total member firm personnel of over 30,000, including partners.

Although many of the firms now carry the Grant Thornton name, they are not all members of one international partnership. Each member firm is a separate national entity, and governs itself and manages its administrative matters independently on a local basis.

Grant Thornton is notable for its role in the Parmalat scandal, although claims against Grant Thornton in relation to the scandal were dismissed in 2007.
