Our private company audit approach

KPMG has made a concerted effort to clearly identify how we approach private company audits. Our team will employ the KPMG Audit Execution Guide (KAEG) for private companies to provide a high-quality audit and thoughtful service. Our ability to deliver a high-quality audit is based on a deep understanding of your business processes, accounting policies, internal controls, and unique financial reporting issues. KPMG will work closely with your management team during transition to understand how you manage and analytically review the business, to help ensure we are applying an effective and efficient audit approach.

Our audit methodology helps ensure that we meet all professional standards through a tailored private company lens. This encourages our engagement teams to draw upon our skills, experience, and judgment to develop a tailored audit approach specific to your situation, and allows us to efficiently complete the audit while still meeting the highest standards of quality.
