A high-quality, independent audit is the cornerstone of investor and regulator confidence. Changing your auditor is an appropriate way to solve a quality problem, but not to solve a perception problem. KPMG encourages Board and Audit Committees to actively assess the quality of their external auditor.
Our Guide to audit quality and the external auditor can help identify areas of concern and act as conversation starters with the external auditors.
