BDO’s response to COVID-19

In line with the Government’s current guidance, we are encouraging BDO employees to work from home and our offices will remain open for those who have a personal need to work from the office. Our offices will continue to follow the Government’s ‘Working Safely’ guidelines. Whether our staff are office-based or working from home, we are fully equipped and have the technology in place to access our systems securely. 

Please do not visit our offices unless you have a confirmed appointment with a BDO employee.

We are doing everything we can to help you in meeting your objectives and priorities, and are following the advice from the UK Government to ensure both safety for our people and business continuity for our clients.

  • We have taken steps to make sure we can continue to deliver the level of quality, excellence and timeliness you are accustomed to from us during these unique circumstances.
  • BDO is in regular contact with the Department of International Trade (DIT) and other Government departments. For an overview of the help the Government is offering then visit:
  • BDO has long been committed to a flexible work place, and we have the technological and operational infrastructure for the organisation to work virtually, should the need arise. As a result, you may find that some of our employees alternate with others to work away from the office where of course they are fully equipped to access all our systems securely, including taking your calls.
  • Additionally, we have put into place policies that require all guests at BDO offices and events to confirm that they do not pose a risk to others, based on certain criteria.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops, and will take the appropriate action as necessary. 

We want you to know how much we appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this time. Should you have any queries whatsoever, please speak with your key contact(s) at BDO as soon as possible.

Your approach to managing the impact of COVID-19

While uncertainty can be hard to manage, robust contingency planning can help mitigate some of the strongest impacts. Knowing the questions to ask, or where to find information, can make all the difference.
