• About BDO


BDO is a global accountancy and business advisory firm. We operate in 154 countries with 64,500 people working out of 1,400 offices worldwide. Globally, BDO generates revenues of $7.3bn

In the UK, our focus is providing market leading exceptional client service delivered by empowered people. Independent research by Mid-Market Monitor shows that BDO has been the market leader for client satisfaction for the last four years running – outperforming all our major competitors.

Our heartland is the UK’s mid-sized and ambitious businesses – a segment of the economy known as the UK mid-market, or “Brittelstand”.

The Brittelstand accounts for less than 1% of all firms by number but delivers a third of UK corporate revenues and accounts for one in four jobs. In the last five years, medium-sized businesses have grown turnover by 55% and profits by 110%. BDO’s New Economy research (www.bdo.co.uk/neweconomy) calls for the government to put the UK mid-market at the heart of its plans to rebalance the economy and help this already successful segment of businesses expand further.

In the UK, we operate from 18 offices, covering all major business centres, across the country, employing 3,500 people offering tax, audit and assurance, and a wide range of consulting and advisory services.
