EU Services 

Welcome to our KPMG page dedicated to EU

In this page, you will be guided to better understand in which areas KPMG is engaged with the EU institutions, from the European Commission to European Parliament and EU agencies; which areas we monitor closely and finally how we are actively involved in helping the EU institutions in delivering in alignment with the objectives set in Agenda 2020.

EU Services

The KPMG EU Office is the central point of contact with the EU institutions. Based in Brussels in the EU area, our team is:

  • conducting engagements that are outsourced by EU institutions where we have competences to deliver;
  • following / monitoring ‘hot’ issues across many sectors that can have an impact on our work, and vice-versa
  • issuing studies and though leadership that might also impact EU policies ( ie ageing population, structural funding absorption report)
  • involved in monitoring regulatory developments (i.e. financial services) and take part in selected consultations;
  • is playing as an active stakeholder (i.e. participating in CSR Europe on a voluntary basis);

We have been able to mobilse KPMG across its EU-28 practices in a network dedicated to service the EU institutions. We provide to the EU institutions services  principally with our audit, tax and advisory expertise.
