Frequently asked questions: Search 

The KPMG website is expanding all the time as new content is added. The most important information is given prominence on our pages. However, there is also a great deal of additional material which you can find through our search function.
How is information distributed across the KPMG website?

The website is divided into sections, each of which is concerned with specific areas of our business. These are 'Who we are', 'What we do', 'Issues & insights' and 'Join us'. Within these sections, information is further divided. For example, within 'What we do' you will find 'Audit', 'Tax', 'Advisory' and 'Industry'. By navigating through these various parts of the site, you will find 'top level' information; that is, the material we judge to be most important and timely.

 

How can I search for specific information?

The KPMG website has an inbuilt search engine. In the upper right corner of each page you will find a search field. Write you keywords in this and click the button to search. If you are looking for a specific phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, if you search for structured finance derivatives the engine will look for any documents that contain any of those words anywhere within its text. However, if you search for “structured finance derivatives” (note the quotation marks), the search engine will only look for documents that contain all three words in that order.

 

How should I choose search terms?

Select words that are most relevant to the subject matter you are searching for. Try to be as specific as possible and use more than a single word if you can. Search engines are not case sensitive, so you don't need to bother with capitalizing, for example, proper names; the results will be the same whether you do or not. Common words, such as 'and', 'where', 'how' and 'if' are similarly ignored. So rather than typing how can I find the latest news about European tax legislation? you need only type latest news european tax legislation . In fact, because search results are ordered with the most recent material first, you would probably get the same outcome by simply typing european tax legislation into the search field.
