KPMG Enterprise is continuing to grow in Québec by acquiring RDQ, a firm specializing in SR&ED tax credits as well as tax credits for the development of e-business. RDQ serves companies of all sizes and, more specifically, supports Québec entrepreneurs and private companies as they endeavour to innovate and develop the appropriate strategies.

"Companies need to continue to adapt and innovate. We are extremely proud to welcome RDQ's team of professionals into our tax group and to provide locally based services to all Québec entrepreneurs so as to support them throughout their innovation process," says Benoit Lacoste Bienvenue, Québec Managing Partner. "Québec's innovation sector is booming. KPMG's acquisition of RDQ represents a new opportunity to continue to improve our client services by drawing on seasoned professionals with recognized market expertise while building our presence in regional markets with our KPMG Enterprise services so that we can support entrepreneurs no matter where they are."

KPMG is recognized for its exceptional Québec and Canadian tax expertise, providing a comprehensive suite of services, including tax observation and specialized advisory services in the areas of Canadian taxation, U.S. and international corporate taxes, indirect taxes, mergers and acquisitions and corporate reorganizations.

"We are thrilled at the idea of joining KPMG's Québec team. We have a common desire to grow and support Québec entrepreneurs and private companies. Our shared values, which include professional excellence and the ability to adapt and optimize our service offerings, will be leveraged to fully benefit from the expertise of both our organizations," said RDQ's Guy Gauthier and Annie Bellehumeur.

KPMG has the wind in its sales, announcing its fourth acquisition in Québec within the last year, after welcoming Allard Matte, Lacroix Allaire Heroux Beaudry and Stein Jacobs Krolik into the great KPMG Enterprise family.
