KPMG launches online platform to support UK’s small and medium businesses
Over £40m invested in KPMG Enterprise which will give users support on accounting and tax issues and access to advice from KPMG experts
Leading auditing and professional services firm KPMG has announced the launch of KPMG Enterprise, a new platform backed by £40m investment which sees it expand its service to privately-owned small and medium UK businesses.
Combining advice and mentoring, the platform includes the firm’s new small business accounting service which gives start-ups access to account preparation, bookkeeping, payroll, VAT and corporate tax returns via the cloud, alongside access to “one-to-one” advice from KPMG experts.
Available from a starting fee of £150 per month, the service marks a change in direction for the company’s usual target audience of mid-market firms with a move into the start-up space preceded by the launch of its $100m tech start-up investment fund at the end last year.
Discussing the launch of its small business offering, KPMG UK chairman; Simon Collins said:
“We want to be the clear choice for all privately-owned businesses – from formation through every stage of their development and growth.
“KPMG Enterprise makes our knowledge and expertise accessible to smaller businesses. The small and medium enterprise sector is the growth engine of the UK economy and we want to support early stage and smaller businesses that previously may have believed our services were out of their reach.”
