SME Advisory

Why choose specialized SME-Advisory?

As a small- and medium sized enterprise (SME) you are special. You have a personal connection with your social and business community, and you deeply care about your business and your employees. While you often have similar compliance burdens as large businesses, you have less leverage to comply with the increasing administrative requirements and to respond to challenging business situations. Efficiency gains and business insights can therefore make a difference for you.

At KPMG, we have a long history of advising micro, small and medium sized businesses and have built up extensive experience in all facets of their operations. Our accountants are proud to be the trusted advisors of SMEs and family owned businesses at all times. You can always take advantage of our services:
