Audit services

KPMG AZSA LLC delivers audit services based on a uniform quality control system at three primary offices: Tokyo (our headquarters), Osaka, and Nagoya. We use the latest KPMG Audit Methodology (KAM) uniformly applied by KPMG offices worldwide, to provide audits that meet KPMG International’s strict global standards for quality.

We support our audit teams with a team of specialists who keep abreast of domestic and overseas accounting and auditing practices, enabling us to respond quickly to revisions of accounting systems and laws. Furthermore, in order to enhance the appropriateness of our range of audit services, we have built a rigorous audit opinion review system implemented by review committees independent from the audit teams.

This combination of knowledgeable and experienced professionals and the use of up-to-date, customized knowledge-sharing systems, helps KPMG AZSA LLC maintain strict auditor independence.
