Audit

Think of the audit as an organisation’s health check. A legal obligation for many companies, an audit also gives vital assurance about the viability of the business.

As auditors, we look to see if the client’s statements about their financial position are true, fair and accurate. We work closely with their finance team and other key people to get to know their business well and understand the risks they face. Then we can identify any weaknesses in their financial statements, business systems or culture, and so advise them on suitable solutions.

Tax

A BDO client will generally have some short-term goals and a long-term vision – but standing in their way will often be a number of tax-related issues. Our job is to act as guides through the complex, ever-changing landscape of tax legislation, to help our clients get where they want to be by the most effective route.

To do this, we must offer many different tax services. These include day-to-day compliance with the tax authorities, advice on employment taxation and international tax, transaction support for deals such as mergers and acquisitions, VAT services, expatriate tax advice and more. Such a diverse offering means we need similar variety in our team. We need specialists who can handle the most technically challenging and sector-specific issues, we need versatile and people-focused individuals who can field a wide range of questions from large owner-managed businesses, and we need brilliant innovators who can work on tailored solutions to address a client’s specific circumstances.

Advisory

Not a single business but a whole set, our seven national Advisory streams deliver more than 25 distinct services between them, to a broad range of clients and markets.

While retaining their own unique identities, the streams work together as a community to make the most of everyone’s talents and maximise the available opportunities. Businesses include Business Restructuring, Forensic Services, Global Outsourcing, Consulting, Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), Transaction Services, and Risk and Advisory Services.

Financial services

The financial services sector is particularly dynamic and specialised, so we maintain a dedicated stream of advisers focused exclusively upon it.

Clients include retail banks, capital markets firms (e.g. investment banks), insurance companies and asset management firms. All of these operate in a landscape of intense competition, economic pressures and ever-evolving regulation, while each will face its own particular challenges too. So our clients need us to understand the technical and commercial aspects of their business, while rapidly responding to new developments to help them stay one step ahead. We have proved that we can meet that need – 96% of our financial services clients would recommend us.
