  • Proactive technical involvement can be provided before concluding complex transactions (for example, BEE transactions and structured finance deals).
  • Reviewing of clients’ financial statements to ensure that these comply with relevant disclosure requirements of IFRS, IFRS for SMEs, SA GAAP, GRAP and US GAAP.
  • Publishing a periodic accounting newsletter focusing on accounting and other financial reporting matters and the latest KPMG publications.
  • Commenting on Exposure Drafts (EDs) of International Accounting and Auditing Standards to the relevant local and international standard-setting bodies, based on our knowledge of our clients’ industries and how any potential changes to the Standards will impact our clients.
  • Assisting with the explanation of new financial reporting developments and complex accounting treatments at audit committee meetings and directors meetings.
  • Assisting with accounting conversions and adoption of IFRS, the conversions of public sector entities to GRAP and advising on differences in accounting under IFRS and US GAAP.
