Accounting Advisory Services 

KPMG’s Accounting Advisory professionals work with clients to help them achieve accounting compliance, provide advice on how they might organise their financial reporting processes and ensure that accounting operations match the objectives of the business.


Accounting Advisory Services (AAS), in addition, help companies become compliant with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and other accounting standards. This applies to both the private and public sectors. AAS also provide financial advisory services which assist CFO's to run efficient finance functions, drive business performance and influence investors and other stake holders-in short, we help CFOs to become business partners.

Our Accounting Advisory Services practice works with our firms’ clients on a range of important matters possessing significant accounting ramifications, including:


  • improving the speed and quality of financial reporting (Quality Close)
  • improvements in the financial reporting process chain
  • initial public offerings
  • merger and acquisition activity
  • cross-border transactions
  • converting to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).


When extraordinary circumstances create a need for temporary assistance, e.g. during M&A activity or restructuring, we are able to co-source scarce accounting and financial reporting resources.
