About BDO in Australia

About us

BDO is a trusted adviser to clients seeking Audit, Tax and Advisory services. As one of the world’s leading audit and accounting organisations, we have clients of all types and sizes, from large corporate organisations to private businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals across an array of industry sectors. 

From a global beginning in 1963 with five original member firms in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, the USA and Canada, the name BDO stands for Binder Dijker Otte. In 1973, the British, German and Dutch member firms adopted a common name whose acronym has endured for the entire global network: Binder Hamlyn (UK) Dijker & Co (Holland) Otte & Co (Germany). Today, BDO now extends across 164 countries and territories. 

BDO in Australia was established as an association of firms in 1975, and is now one of the country's largest associations of independently owned accounting practices with offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Hobart, McLaren Vale, Melbourne, Parramatta, Perth, Sydney, the Sunshine Coast and Townsville.

We’re working towards a strong future as a global organisation built on local relationships. Our focus is on delivering ideas and advice that create value, nurturing quality-driven people and being trusted by our clients to get the job done.
