Professional Practice Network

Essential support for smaller accounting, legal, and wealth management firms

The BDO Professional Practice Network helps accountants and other professionals satisfy the changing needs of their clients.

By joining the Network, firms can gain access to BDO’s specialist advice and information across a range of areas, including:

  • Tax & Advisory
  • Superannuation & SMSFs
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Audit
  • Forensic Services
  • Consulting
  • Corporate Finance / Valuations
  • Risk Advisory
  • Growth Services.

Network members also have access to BDO specialists and resources in BDO’s global network.

We work closely with our Network 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:

  • Advice from our technical staff (calls between 5 – 10 minutes duration are free of charge)
  • Invitations to technical seminars
  • Regular newsletters with the latest information and updates on accounting, tax, self-managed superannuation and other technical issues likely to impact your clients
  • Copies of regular publications including A-REIT Survey, Business Recovery Watch, and Technical Updates.

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 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.
