KPMG has been working in Kazakhstan since 1996, and our essential principle has always been to use the firm's global intellectual capital, combined with the practical experience of our local professionals.
KPMG in Kazakhstan provides audit and advisory services on tax and financial issues to a great number of the banks and financial institutions of the country, as well as to enterprises in the leading sectors of the economy such as mining, oil and gas, telecommunications, and the food industry.
In Kazakhstan, KPMG now has offices in Almaty, Astana and Atyrau employing together approximately 400 people.
In the CIS, KPMG has offices in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Russia, and Ukraine where we employ over 4,000 people. In addition, we provide services in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan using professional staff from different KPMG offices in the CIS, coordinated by KPMG in Kazakhstan.
Our strength in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries is our base of local national KPMG trained professionals augmented by KPMG trained expatriates from around the world. These invaluable human resources are available to all of our offices and project centers throughout the region and we are building for the future by transferring skills possessed by our professionals from elsewhere in the world to our local staff.
KPMG's global experience is thus complemented by the skills of local professionals, an invaluable asset for any client operating in or considering a move into a new and unfamiliar market. Our teams can offer realistic but internationally strategic sophisticated recommendations in line with local market conditions.
