1MDB: The Audit Firms’ Questions

Azham Md. Ali

Abstract


The 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) has had three auditors since it started its operation several years ago. The issues of interest are related to the subject matter of auditor switching and the audit failure allegations made against its two latter auditors: KPMG and Deloitte. When it concerns Deloitte, it was accused of hiding 1MDB’s insolvency.

As for the auditor switching from KPMG to Deloitte, questions arose on the reasons for and its timing.
