LONDON (Reuters) – KPMG’s audits of banks needed improvements for the third year running and the accounting firm will be closely monitored, Britain’s auditing watchdog said on Friday in its annual check of leading accountants.
“Inspection results at KPMG did not improve and it is unacceptable that, for the third year running, the FRC found improvements were required to KPMG’s audits of banks and similar entities,” the Financial Reporting Council said in a statement.
“KPMG has agreed additional improvement activities to be delivered this year over and above its existing audit quality improvement plan.”
