Business Services

KPMG supports you on the path to strengthening your fiscal positions and competitiveness. We help you build your sustainable competitive advantage which is critical for continued economic growth. We look ahead and invest in business supporting technologies to ensure sustainable and flexible business functions.

Managing a successful small and medium enterprise (SME) is challenging no matter which industry or environment you operate. Often times this challenge is tackled alone with limited access to quality, value-adding insights to simplify the SME journey. The PNG Government understand the value of SMEs and has the view that growth in this market is the backbone to strengthen the PNG market. Our PNG KPMG Business Advisory Services (BAS) team have the right entrepreneurs who have tested and succeeded in the local and global markets.

KPMG BAS will not let you travel this journey alone. Our team is dedicated to strengthening PNG SMEs and supporting communities. The BAS team lets you focus on your goals and what matters to your business the most. Whether it be strengthening your fiscal position, market competitiveness or working with you to look ahead and identify business supporting technologies to ensure sustainable and flexible business functions. KPMG will travel this journey with you ensuring you have access to the necessary tools to succeed.
