Our approach is based on key principles relating to professional integrity, independence and ethical conduct that all partners and team members must present.


It is developed through an established set of standards and technologies for monitoring, analysis and advisory and tools that help teams to access knowledge - including KPMG's exclusive computerized audit techniques - all designed to help teams focus on issues that impact decisions and improve audit effectiveness and efficiency.


Our professionals are in frequent contact with our clients' executives, board members, regulator and academic agencies to understand the changing business environment.


We have the ability to share with our customers the insights of KPMG member firms through the following resource centers:


  • The Audit Committee Institute (ACI)

Designed to create a discussion forum where members of audit committees follow the issues related to governance, audit, accounting and financial reporting. Since its inception in 1999, the member firms of KPMG International have launched ACIs in over 20 countries. 


  • The International Standards Group

Established to assist clients and professionals in the application and interpretation of international accounting standards (IFRS) and international auditing standards in various jurisdictions around the world.


  • The 404 Institute

Established as a forum in which organizations can learn more about the requirements of Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley and discuss ways of dealing with the evolution of effective controls. Since its inception in 2004, the Institute has brought together more than 5,000 members in 50 countries.


Our audit professionals also provide other assurance or review services to meet the needs of clients to address specific issues, assisting in the development or preparation of financial information based on assumptions about events that may occur in the future, as well as part of a process for obtaining financing.


They can also assist clients in many possible configurations in which non-financial assurance is appropriate and the skills and credentials of KPMG are necessary.


KPMG'S professionals in Brazil usually perform these services in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and International Standards on related services or specific standards of each country.
