Essential Services

This service provides consulting support for your company in the course of an audit.


  • This service is provided as a supplement to KPMG’s ‘Quick Accounting Gap Analysis’ or ‘In-depth support transitioning to IFRS’.

    • analyse the need to involve external experts, including actuaries, appraisers, etc.,
    • analyse and provide recommendations on internal control systems, accounting and reporting processes, IT systems, etc.
