BDO has bolstered its audit, tax and advisory divisions across the country with the introduction of 22 partners in its Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Cairns offices.

The announcement brings BDO’s Australian partner numbers to 166 across 10 offices, cementing itself as the country’s fifth largest full service accounting and advisory firm.

BDO Chairman, Helen Argiris, said the new appointments are strategically focused to provide additional expertise and capability in both traditional and new areas of business. 

“We’ve made appointments across a number of service lines including audit, tax, and advisory and with specialisations such as Transfer Pricing, and China and Asian Advisory Services.

“And as technology enables clients to automate more of their compliance activities, we are focusing on our business advisory services and better leveraging the expertise of our experienced corporate finance, risk assurance and consulting teams,” Ms Argiris said.

“All partners bring with them years of experience and a commitment to exceptional client service.”
