Essential support for smaller accounting and legal firms

BDO offers essential support to smaller accounting and legal firms through its Professional Practices Network. The BDO Professional Practices Network was developed to assist smaller accounting and legal firms to satisfy the changing needs of clients.

By joining the Network, members gain direct access to key BDO partners and senior professional staff across service lines and specialisations including:

  • Audit
  • Business Restructuring
  • Corporate Finance
  • Corporate Secretarial
  • Forensic Services
  • Risk Advisory
  • Tax Consulting
  • Superannuation.

We work closely with our members and have developed an in-depth understanding of the unique needs of smaller practices. Network members can expect direct access to our specialist teams and receive the following key benefits:

  • Regular technical information and newsletters
  • Invitations to training, seminars, webinars and other member events
  • Discounted professional publications
  • Direct contact with seasoned BDO experts
  • Telephone enquiry service for brief technical queries (5 to 10 minutes), excluding Superannuation Support Desk.

Referral policy

BDO undertakes not to directly contact any client referred by a Professional Practices Network (PPN) member in respect to other services and will not attempt to attract such clients away from a PPN member. We will not knowingly initiate contact with any client of a PPN member. Should we be approached to undertake work for any clients of a PPN member, we commit to contact the relevant member to discuss.

Fee policy

There is no joining fee, nor is there an annual subscription fee for network membership. For member phone enquiries that are 5 to 10 minutes in duration, there is no charge, excluding Superannuation Support Desk.

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 active involvement, we supply an engagement letter with the scope of our services and the estimated fee, which can be rendered to either the member firm directly or the member’s client.

For each new business restructuring and corporate finance enquiry, we offer a free initial assessment consultation.
