South Korea has one of the world’s fastest growing economies and ranks among the top in the world by nominal gross domestic product (GDP) and by purchasing power parity (PPP). The country is one of the largest importers and exporters in the world, particularly in the automotive and consumer electronics industries.
As part of KPMG’s U.S. International Corridors network of local and in-country professionals, our Korean Practice in the U.S. was first established more than 38 years ago. Since then, KPMG has had the largest Korean Practice in the U. S. among the Big 4 accounting firms, with more than 200 experienced bilingual professionals who are serving Korean companies. Currently, our practice presence includes Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta, and we have developed a staff of highly qualified bilingual professionals that deliver quality professional services including audit, tax, and advisory, which are all supported by local, national and global resources within KPMG's network of member firms. Many years of experience and know-how, along with the abundance of resources through KPMG’s network within the U.S. and around the world, allow us to understand the unique needs of Korean companies doing business in the U.S. and facilitate clear communication in a timely manner with parent companies in Korea.
