Technical accounting and accounting change

KPMG helps businesses anticipate the impact of accounting changes, including opportunities.


Complex accounting issues impact more than just accounting

A company’s most complicated transactions, such as acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, capital markets transactions and changes in accounting standards can create far-ranging implications across your business. Many companies lack resources with the necessary experience or bandwidth to navigate these accounting challenges or capitalize on the opportunities they can offer.

KPMG Technical Accounting Advisory Services provides on-call advice and project-based support in many areas, including:

  • Accounting advice, interpretation, and transactional support for mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, investments, structured finance, debt and equity offerings, leasing, and derivatives
  • Interpretation of changing standards in both U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)and advice on how to meet new requirements
  • Technical research, including analyses of guidance from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), SEC and International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), and actions taken by public companies as well as those in our extensive client base

Just as the impact of these transactions and changes extends beyond accounting, KPMG does more than help you manage deadlines and rules. We reveal the opportunities a transaction or new standard presents and recommend how to improve efficiency and execution. And we have the global scale and reach through our network of international member firms to align with out clients’ locations and provide a balanced approach of centralized and local resources.

Business and accounting change is an evolving process—one that requires consistently fresh perspectives and insights. KPMG can help.
