Audit and Assurance 

In recent years the financial risks businesses face have become far more complex.

Even some non-financial risks can now result in serious financial consequences. As a result, the need for broader and more relevant assurance has never been greater. A robust and independent opinion can enable businesses to know exactly where they stand so they can move forward with knowledge and, hopefully, confidence.

Our innovative auditing approach goes beyond minimum requirements and is shaping the future of corporate reporting.

Every KPMG audit is designed to exceed national and international standards. Our experienced audit teams aim to challenge assumptions and provide deep insights based on a thorough understanding of the business and sector.


Going beyond requirements in the UK, we have adopted a bold new policy for our audit reports: we will include findings in our long-form audit reports, where companies engage us to do so before the final audit commences. In implementing this approach, we aim to improve openness and transparency for shareholders and ultimately help restore trust in corporate reporting. Our public statement "Sharing audit insights - our approach to reporting our findings" (PDF 338KB) explains our approach further and why we have adopted it.

All of our professionals are guided by the same methodology, processes and documentation.

In addition, all our audit staff undergo regular training to keep their knowledge up to date. As one of the leading professional auditors we put integrity and insight at the heart of our work. It’s an award-winning approach.

Creating auditors of the future

And we’re thinking ahead. We want to create the world leading professional auditors of the future. We provide an opportunity to develop valuable skills, work towards gaining a professional qualification, start your career and earn a good salary too – all after doing your A-levels.
