About KPMG China
KPMG China has 17 offices, including KPMG Advisory (China) Limited, in Beijing, Beijing Zhongguancun, Chengdu, Chongqing, Foshan, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Qingdao, Shanghai, Shenyang, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Xiamen, Hong Kong and Macau, with around 10,000 professionals.
In 1992, KPMG became the first international accounting firm to be granted a joint venture licence in China, and our Hong Kong SAR operations have been established for over 60 years since 1945. This early commitment to the China market, together with our unwavering focus on quality, has been the foundation for accumulated industry experience, and is reflected in our appointment by some of the China’s most prestigious companies.
As China businesses join the global economy and international companies seek to enter the China market, KPMG’s blend of international experience and local knowledge makes us well-positioned to serve our clients in this increasingly complex, but exciting market.
Our single management structure for all our China offices allows efficient and rapid allocation of experienced professionals wherever the client is located in China. The flexibility of this single structure allows us to effectively serve companies across China, and we have many projects where professionals from different offices work together on a work engagement under the supervision of a single nominated client partner, who has operational control of all resources.
Our business in China has established industry groups, helping enable targeted, industry-specific experience and methodologies to be delivered where needed. For our clients, this focus on industry and country-specific knowledge helps us deliver exceptional people with an intimate knowledge of your specific business issues, as well as an overriding commitment to strive for the highest quality services.
China attracts foreign investors as both a manufacturing base and a marketplace in its own right. Yet despite China’s rapid development and WTO membership, it remains a challenging place in which to do business. We strive to provide foreign investors with reliable, independent professional advice on national and local issues as they establish and expand their business in China.
In addition to growing competition from global leaders in their home market, leading Chinese firms increasingly need to compete internationally. KPMG’s international experience and China marketplace knowledge enable us to help our clients adapt to international standards, raise funds, restructure, and identify overseas partners and opportunities.
KPMG professionals operate in multi-disciplinary groups focusing on clients’ needs and industries. We aim to deliver quality services through dedicated teams operating through lines of business.
We have established industry groups for banking and finance; information, communications and entertainment; property and infrastructure; private equity; consumer markets and industrial products. We also have senior individuals from different countries who can deal with country-specific issues and provide reports under the relevant national form of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
