KPMG's Trade & Customs Practice is specifically structured to assist in addressing complexities of international trade in Southern Africa and Africa.


In a world full of turmoil and supply chain uncertainty, wars, trade wars, and grain wars, the international trade environment is getting increasingly complex and difficult to navigate. Businesses with many years of experience in the world of cross-border trade are facing unusual and unprecedented risks that need to be managed, and increased competition dictates that more efficient supply chains and logistics practices need to be developed and maintained.

At the same time, the tax and regulatory environment governing cross-border transactions is evolving rapidly, with automation and data management a keen focus area for tax authorities in both developed and developing countries. All this in a time when customs formalities and import regulations are keenly policed and enforced, with the threat of severe penalties should mistakes occur.
