The Business Tax Advisory (BTA) team at KPMG has significant understanding of the commercial, accounting and tax landscape and deep industry knowledge to help our clients. Attitudes to tax and accountng compliance are changing and decisions are in the public eye more than ever. Organizations are becoming increasingly exposed to complex changes in regulation – not just locally but globally.

BTA is part of KPMG’s specialist mid-market division. Every day we work with some of the most exciting, innovative and important businesses in Papua New Guinea. We work with established entrepreneurs, private and family businesses, not-for-profits, mid-size listed companies and emerging and fast-growing companies to build thriving organisations. By bringing our diverse expertise together, we give our clients the confidence to focus on the things that will truly make an impact and help them grow.

 Our focus is on building strong client relationships and being the trusted adviser to our clients. As a result of this, we attract people we can trust and who we can put forward to the market to cultivate those relationships. What that translates to is a mix of enthusiastic and inclusive people who all have a passion for the work that we do.

The team in BTA is really approachable. Whether it is a junior team member or a partner, anyone is willing to spare time to help you if you’re stuck on a problem they can help with.
