Payments Advisory

KPMG helps our clients respond to the changing nature of payments and deliver on opportunities.

KPMG helps clients respond to the changing nature of payments.

The Australian Payments landscape continues to evolve with new technologies, changing regulations, the rise of Fintech, and the introduction of a comprehensive new payments solution to Australia – the New Payments Platform (NPP) – which are all contributing to a shift in business and society’s expectations of where and how they can make and receive payments.

This evolution presents opportunities for organisations to attract and retain customers, improve efficiencies and innovate on traditional business models and revenue streams. There is potential to provide a ‘seamless’ customer experience, in which payment is an invisible part of the process.

KPMG supports our clients in responding to the changing nature of payments by helping to anticipate future challenges, capitalise on emerging opportunities, and innovate on product development. We also help our clients deliver on these opportunities.
