KPMG Netherlands

Using Danish platform Impero, Dutch companies will now be able to simplify and optimize their tax governance, tax risk management and tax compliance (GRC), as KPMG Meijburg & Co (Netherlands), one of the world’s leading tax & legal advisory firms, will provide their clients with the Impero compliance management platform as part of their tax transformation services.

Copenhagen, 4 August 2021.
Today, the Danish software-as-a-service company Impero, which has developed a platform to automate risk and control management, announced a partnership agreement with KPMG Meijburg & Co, a member of the global KPMG network. Through this collaboration with KPMG Meijburg & Co, Dutch companies will gain access to the Impero platform to help automate and optimize their tax compliance management.
For years, Impero has had a relationship with various KPMG member firms affiliated with KPMG International, which comprises one of the world’s leading professional services firms offering audit, tax, and advisory services. The newly minted partnership with KPMG Meijburg & Co follows Impero’s recent announcement of a collaboration with KPMG Canada, the company’s first North American agreement.
Alexander Zegers, Tax Technology & Transformation Leader for Meijburg & Co underpins the importance of offering Dutch clients the intuitiveness and agility
Impero provides: “Offering our clients best-in-class tax transformation services and delivering the optimal solution for often-complex tax governance, process &
compliance needs are critical to us. Adding Impero to our offering of carefully selected technology solutions will allow us to provide the best assistance to our
clients. We look forward to further strengthen our clients’ tax function and the collaboration with Impero is an important technology enabler for us.”
The Dutch market is a strategic milestone for Impero, which continues its international expansion as described in the company’s strategy plan set forth during its successful listing on the Danish stock exchange. Impero’s strategic focus remains on Northwestern Europe and this partnership agreement further solidifies the company’s position in the region.
Expressing her contentment with the successful establishment of yet another partnership, CEO Rikke Stampe Skov says: “Creating valuable and long-lasting partnerships is at the forefront of our business. We have been successful in establishing a close relationship with KPMG in several countries and I am thrilled
that we are now able to assist Dutch companies in their compliance management journeys.”
KPMG Meijburg & Co will add the Impero platform to its offering as a scalable and agile solution to their compliance needs with specific focus on tax and finance compliance. Initially, the professional services firm will include Impero in its tax transformations program in which KPMG Netherlands will help to optimize
companies’ compliance to meet the increasing demands from local and international regulations. Currently, Impero has established collaborations with various KPMG member firms, including Denmark, Germany, Canada and United Kingdom and works closely with several other member firms.
