Back in 1895, two companies, Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co, as well as Aiken & Carter, had the idea to merge under one firm and establish what is now called KPMG. The company, responsible for providing services within the audit, tax, and advisory departments, is an international powerhouse that has several independent firms working under its name. With a diverse set of clientele, spanning from governments, to non-profit organisations, from your typical business corporations and pubic agencies, KPMG is able to accommodate to them all, especially since they have firms in at least 155 countries and a total working staff of 162,200 employees.
