“I have worked with BDO from the start up of SolveIT Software through its growth phase of becoming the 3rd-fastest growing company in Australia, to its large-scale sale to Schneider Electric. BDO helped the company through the entire journey, providing critical advice, guidance, and value-add services for each and every stage. Without reserve or hesitation, I recommend BDO for all matters related to finance, tax, legal structures, grants, and more. I use BDO and highly recommend you do as well.”

Cuesta Coal Limited
“The Natural Resources team provided excellent support for Cuesta Coal throughout our successful IPO. The knowledge and experience in the Industry was demonstrated by their Corporate Finance, Audit and Taxation teams through the quality of their advice, participation and assistance at all levels of the IPO process. As a result we have developed a strong working relationship and will continue to work closely as we implement our business plans in the future.”
Director & Chief Operating Officer, Cuesta Coal Limited
“BDO was always there to help us. I had a true sense from early on that our success was their success. To this day, they’re in this business at the highest possible level.”
“We’ve worked very closely together from the start and always with respect. BDO has built a really sound knowledge base of our industry and the way our team prefers to operate, from senior partner level down.”
Founder, JF Hull
“Quite frankly, I don’t move without BDO being involved. They have the breadth and depth of resources that a business like ours requires. There are real synergies between the two firms.
We share the same values of trust, integrity, transparency and commitment to always add value. The key for me is their understanding and reliability. BDO understands me and my senior executive team - what motivates us. They understand our business drivers and the business environment and multiplicity of markets we operate in, at both a micro and macro level.
BDO has never failed us, never. That’s a big statement when you consider they help us with general accounting and taxation matters, financial planning, business strategy, overseas market advice (drawing on the BDO network), corporate finance, and more.
BDO is my closest and most valued business adviser.”
Buderim Ginger Limited
“BDO efficiently replaced Ernst & Young and have continued to provide the level of professionalism and breadth of skill and expertise required. I have found each member of BDO’s audit team to be highly professional, with the appropriate level of knowledge on applicable accounting standards and our company’s accounting practices. All interactions with my staff have been extremely pleasant and productive with due consideration for individuals’ workloads. BDO’s team members’ strong understanding and interest in our business and industry ensures that they are exceptionally thorough in their assessment.
In short, BDO employ people who demonstrate integrity, respect and teamwork. I have availed myself of their consistent, high-quality client services, including auditing services, accounting and strategic policy-setting advice, and have always been appreciative of their timely response to any query. BDO’s partners’ and managers’ interaction with our Audit and Compliance Committee has been extremely professional and productive for all concerned. The move from the big four to a mid-tier auditing firm has proven to be a wise choice for our particular circumstances.”

“We have used BDO as an auditor for the past eight years. BDO complete the audit in a timely fashion and we are very happy with the provision of service and the efficiency of both the staff and the audit system.
BDO serve as a great business partner for St Andrews, by continuing to add value through delivering service in a timely fashion, always being there to answer queries and operating with clear communication channels.
I feel that BDO knows St Andrews. This comes back to the continuity of staff, especially the senior people who have been there during the engagement. We feel comfortable with the senior people who have taken the time to know our business.”

Seymour Whyte Limited
“BDO’s Corporate Finance team provided a flexible and focused approach to the work they undertook for us, which clearly demonstrated their understanding of our objectives and their grasp of the commercial issues.

U&U Executive Recruitment
“From our first meeting with Sharon Houghton, we knew that BDO were right for us. Sharon talked us through every aspect of setting up our business and also referred us to our branding firm (who came up with the u&u concept we love), our structuring and IP lawyers, and our bookkeeper.
At every stage Sharon has shown a genuine interest and enthusiasm in our business and the significant success and growth we've enjoyed in our first six months of operation. She has invited us to BDO-sponsored networking events and kept us up to date with industry developments. As well as meeting an integral part of our business needs, we think of Sharon as a friend, and look forward to working with her and BDO as our business continues to develop and grow.”

“For more than a decade BDO has worked with me in building a long term relationship and whatever the service offering their responsiveness to the personal needs and objectives of the client is the primary objective. That understanding together with a proactive, practical and commercial approach to developing solutions are the solid foundation upon which they have developed each and every strategy for me over the years. The other thing that strikes me about this approach is the bringing together of several disciplines to provide a holistic solution. When I was introduced to the concept of Strategic Wealth Management I saw that as a point of differentiation that has remained intact to this day. I can and would recommend the services of BDO without reservation.”
