KPMG: 28 years in Kazakhstan

The date - February 22, 2024 - marks 28 years since KPMG came to Kazakhstan and became its first office in Central Asia.

Over these almost thirty years, KPMG Kazakhstan has made great efforts to improve the business environment in our country and attract investments. We have become a talent forge, investing in the education and professional development of our employees, who today work in various sectors of the economy, helping to develop new enterprises in our country.

Given geopolitical changes, KPMG in Kazakhstan is not just a separate practice, but an integral part of the larger KPMG Caucasus and Central Asia family. Together with Kazakhstan, our cluster includes Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. And at the same time, we are deeply integrated and closely interact with KPMG offices in the Middle East and South Asia. Our common goal is to jointly create value for our clients and ensure sustainable development of the region.

Today, the company employs more than 900 professionals, 89% of whom are proud to be a part of KPMG. The company has become a leading employer and one of the major consultants in the Central Asian market. We provide a full range of professional services, including:

  • Audit
  • Tax and legal advice
  • Management consulting
  • Investments and capital markets
  • Risk management consulting
  • Strategic and operational consulting
