Commenting on the Government’s consultation paper, Jon Holt, head of audit at KPMG UK said
“This is a once in a generation opportunity to reform the corporate regulatory landscape and positively redefine Britain’s role in a post Brexit world. The proposed reforms will demonstrate we are a fantastic country to invest in – safe, sustainable and trusted to deliver economic growth.
“It is an ambitious package of strategic reform. Prioritising and clarifying the audit reform agenda is an important step to rebuild trust in the profession. Establishing ARGA, with broader responsibilities, is key.
“The introduction of a resilience statement, including Environment, Social and Governance disclosures, is one of the most important innovations in meaningful corporate reporting in decades and is something the broader investor community will also welcome.”
