Independent, quality financial statement audits

Financial statement audits give assurance over information used by investors and the capital markets – a responsibility to the public interest our KPMG Audit professionals take very seriously, applying powerful D&A routines to create better audit evidence and gain deeper insights, and exploring the role auditors can and should play by engaging stakeholders to better understand their views through KPMG’s ‘Value of Audit’ forum. Our professionals – innovating to better serve the capital markets and society as a whole.

In this economic climate businesses, shareholders and stakeholders are looking for high levels of assurance. The objective of our auditors is to perform with integrity and provide a robust and independent opinion.

We base our audit on six key principles to help ensure optimal service for  our clients in the listed, private and public sector. These are:

  • Technical experience: providing transparent, credible, timely and decisive judgements 
  • Focus: a prioritised approach, concentrating on mutually agreed key risks 
  • Involvement: frequent communication and substantial partner involvement supports the early identification and discussion of emerging risks 
  • Insight: sharing our views and observations on business performance, based on company and sector  knowledge 
  • Integrated: tax, forensic and technology professionals, for example, are all part of our multi-disciplinary team 
  • Consistency: strong central direction bring cohesion and co-ordination of our audit team across all subsidiaries and territories.
