In this month’s edition we consider the results of the KPMG 2023 CEO Outlook, with the hot topics being disruptive technology, talent and ESG, which is not unexpected given global trends. We run through the 2023 Supplementary Budget which is driven by better-than-expected tax revenues, and we have updates on IRC's new GST and credit transfers forms and processes.  

KPMG in PNG has dedicated in-house locally based specialists in all of the following areas: cybersecurity and technology advisory, internal audit/risk, visa migration, corporate finance, management consulting, fraud investigation as well as tax, audit readiness,inancial statement preparation, payroll services and assurance. As such we are well placed to provide a truly multi-disciplined approach to business advisory.
