KPMG staff go on ‘tax trek

Overseas training scheme kicks off

Sixty-seven young tax professionals from KPMG will leave their home firm next
week on a three month assignment in a different part of the world as part of a
new training scheme called ‘Tax Trek’.

The pilot scheme is aimed at senior associates and junior managers who have
been with KPMG for at least two years and has been designed to give them an
early taste of international work.

Twenty-four countries are taking part in the project. Each can choose where
to send its tax trekkers, but it must accept an equal number from other firms in
return.
The most popular destination are the US, with eight countries opting to send
people there, followed by the UK with seven.

Loughlin Hickey, global head of KPMG’s Tax practice, said, ‘Our Generation Y
professionals are remarkable people. They are smart, very comfortable with
technology and keen to develop their professional skills to raise their market
value. They embrace change and are acutely aware that they are operating in a
global market place.
