Contract Compliance Advisory

KPMG can help organisations better manage their software, channel and vendor-based contracts.

KPMG helps organisations better manage their software, channel & vendor-based contracts.

Making sure business organisations receive what they are entitled to under intellectual property and other commercial arrangements.

Many organisations generate revenues through royalty, licensing and similar commercial arrangements. They can also receive discounts, rebates and incentive payments via preferred customer and volume-linked arrangements.

Under these arrangements, payments and receipts are often based on self-declarations that are difficult to monitor and verify. Exercising financial control over these relationships can be difficult. Organisations can be vulnerable to the poor controls and inappropriate business practices of others.
