BDO has announced the appointment of new partner Mike Smith in the Melbourne transfer pricing team.

Mike has nearly 20 years’ transfer pricing experience from around the world having worked in London, New York and Sydney, and spending his entire career working with large firms including KPMG and PwC.   

Mike will complement the experience of the current partner group nationally, as BDO expands its transfer pricing practice. 

“Complying with transfer pricing obligations and requirements around the globe has never been so complex and the increased attention and focus on transfer pricing has sparked the attention of Directors and Boards of multi-national groups – both large and small.  With this increased attention locally and globally, we are finding our clients require a lot more support to navigate their way through the complexity.” said Zara Ritchie, BDO’s Global Head of Transfer Pricing and Australian Practice Leader.

“BDO’s transfer pricing practice is growing at a fast pace, both globally and nationally. We are excited to welcome Mike to our growing team.”

David Garvey, BDO Melbourne’s Managing Partner said “Mike’s appointment is critical to the continued growth of our Transfer Pricing practice in Melbourne.”

 “Our clients are looking for expertise as well as practical, cross-border advice, to navigate this fast changing transfer pricing environment.”
