“BDO completed financial, taxation and commercial due diligence for Reed & Mackay for the acquisition of Concierge Travel Group. The work was of a high quality and delivered to scope.  We performed this transaction largely from London and were very well supported by BDO on the ground in Sydney.  We found the team to be professional, proactive and responsive to our stakeholders here.”
