Professional Practices Network

The BDO Professional Practices Network (PPN) offers essential support to colleagues from the accounting, legal, financial planning and banking industries. Through the network, we provide specialist services and educational updates across a range of areas, including:

  • Audit
  • Tax
  • Advisory
  • Corporate finance
  • Business restructuring
  • Debt advisory
  • Superannuation and SMSF services
  • Forensic services
  • Private wealth.

We work closely with our PPN members and have an in-depth understanding of the unique needs of smaller practices. PPN members can expect direct access to BDO’s specialist teams - and we have access to the specialists and resources of the global BDO network, which means we can help you satisfy the changing needs of your clients, no matter where they are.

Members can also receive the following benefits:

  • Technical information
  • Topic-based educational updates
  • Invitations to seminars and other events.

Fee policy

There is no joining fee or annual subscription fee for PPN members.

For member phone enquiries that are five to ten minutes in duration, there is no charge. With more complex issues, requiring in-depth tailored business advice, BDO offers access to the complete range of advisory services, based on an agreed consultation fee. For requests that require our written advice or our active involvement, we supply an engagement letter with information on our services plus our estimated fee, which can be rendered to either the member firm directly or the member’s client as you prefer.

BDO undertakes not to directly contact any client referred by you in respect of other services and will not attempt to attract such clients away from our members. We will not knowingly initiate contact with any of your other clients. Should we be approached to undertake work for any of your other clients we will contact you and discuss the circumstances.
