Shamila's profile 

Hi, I am Shamila attached to KPMG’s tax practice in Sri Lanka. I started work with KPMG back in 1995 as an audit trainee and moved on to the tax division. In 2001 I left the firm and joined the commercial sector. In May 2008 I rejoined the firm as a Director as KPMG is the best place to be to practice tax.

KPMG in Sri Lanka is the market leader in the field of audit and advisory services and has a client base covering almost all sectors of the economy. The portfolio of clients is so good that I feel it gives me an overall exposure that cannot be found elsewhere. It also provides an opportunity to work in teams across divisions and countries.

I also believe that it is one of the few firms in Sri Lanka that has access to a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge base. My experience with industry and commerce and the knowledge base at KPMG is a great combination for success as a tax professional.

KPMG is staffed with young, enthusiastic and committed people. You would find that most of the staff members are ardent sports enthusiasts and the firm is currently a leader in various fields of sport. The open and friendly office environment also permits me to balance work and personal life, whether one strives to achieve it with family or go for higher studies.

The firm is known to be a workplace which facilitates and encourages the overall development of its staff. This along with the strong ‘values’ orientation I think gives a rewarding opportunity to develop and strive for excellence.
