Application Details

The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18:

"KPMG is a global network of professional firms providing Audit, Tax and Advisory services. We operate in 153 countries and have 145,000 people working in member firms around the world. The independent member firms of the KPMG network are affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity. Each KPMG member firm is a legally distinct and separate entity and describes itself as such. We contribute to the effective functioning of international capital markets. We support reforms that strengthen the markets’ credibility and their social responsibility. We believe that similar reform must extend to the professional realm. We aim to respond to the complex business challenges facing clients and adopt a global approach spanning professional disciplines, industry sectors and national borders. Member firmsʹ clients include business corporations, governments and public sector agencies and not-for-profit organizations. They look to KPMG for a consistent standard of service based on high order professional capabilities, industry insight and local knowledge. At KPMG, we try to create sustainable, long-term economic growth, not just for our member firms and their clients but for broader society, too. We seek to be a good corporate citizen, making a real difference to the communities in which we operate. Combined revenues for KPMG member firms totalled US$22.7 billion for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2011, a 10.1 percent increase in U.S. dollars, or 6.2 percent in local currency terms, on the previous year. The .KPMG registry will be a standard, not a community-based, registry.
