Error in systems means KPMG can't pay its staff on payday

BIG FOUR FIRM KPMG is unable to pay all its UK staff today due to an “error” in its systems, Accountancy Age can reveal.

A “glitch” in the system has meant that all UK staff, numbering nearly 11,000, have not been paid today as planned but will receive funds on Monday, said a KPMG spokesman.

Usually KPMG staff are paid on the last Friday of every month however, they will now have to wait until after the weekend.

KPMG has sent an email to its workforce apologising for the inconvenience.

There are currently experts looking at the systems to find the cause of the error with more details likely to be revealed later today.
