KPMG opens office in Myanmar

Business advisory firm KPMG is the first of the big four – Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young – to open an office in Myanmar. The company took the step through its office in Bangkok, according to Tara Chanapai , spokeswoman for KPMG in Thailand.

KPMG withdrew from Myanmar in the early 2000s after the US imposed sanctions but is now seeing strong investment interest, particularly from its large base of Thai, Japanese and international clients in neighbouring Thailand and in Singapore.

KPMG said it will offer tax and business consulting first, but will also support customers in their investments in Myanmar, focusing on financial services, healthcare, tourism and infrastructure. Later, KPMG will also offer auditing services, Chanapai says.

She added that the Myanmar office has access to all the capacities of KPMG in Thailand with its more than 1,200 experts and also gets additional support from the KPMG offices in Japan and Singapore.
