Just like our clients, KPMG is having to adapt to the current environment.

We need to stay in touch in a manner which is considerate of the challenges faced.

We are delighted to introduce our new #askKPMG Webinar Series which will run from Thursday 26 March 2020.

A weekly, 60 minute, practical and insightful digital presentation from our Tax, Advisory and Audit experts on the areas of business we think you need to know about most.

This digital environment gives us the opportunity to share our knowledge with you, and you the chance to comment and raise questions throughout which will then be discussed at the end of the presentation. You can then go on to arrange a more in-depth session for your team or one-to-one digital call.

Originally launched as a series of six webinars starting 26 March, we are delighted to continue our #askKPMG webinar series with further sessions from 7 May. Continuing with the Covid-19 focused theme, we look forward to welcoming guest presenters from both the KPMG Global network and key representatives from the local business community. Full details of topics and presenters will be released prior to each session via our social media channels.
