What do we do in Audit?
As auditors at KPMG, we don’t just look at figures – we also consider information and security requirements. We support companies with specific services that go well beyond the actual audit of their financial statements. KPMG’s audit practice assists clients to fulfill their strategic and operational objectives through the provision of audit and assurance services. We provide independent opinions, which support the integrity and accuracy of client information and also enhance its credibility when issued in the public domain. Additionally we help our clients identify errors and incidences of non-compliance in internal information and controls and opportunities to improve their systems and processes.
Our auditors’ commitment to quality, service, and integrity is key to their success, and ours.
