This publication, KPMG’s Transparency Report for the financial year ended 30 September 2021, focuses on how we drive audit quality, our systems of quality control, and the initiatives we are continuously pursuing to improve it. We see audit quality as fundamental to maintaining public trust in the capital markets and the financial reports issued by audited organisations. We aim to lead the profession in audit quality.

This report also aligns with our Global KPMG Quality framework. The new framework describes how our commitment to integrity lies at the heart of everything we do at KPMG.
