BDO, the world’s fifth largest accountancy network, has announced that all its member firms in 110 countries worldwide are adopting the single global trading name of ‘BDO’ and the same applies to its local partner -- BDO Burah Hathy.
Sujeewa Rajapakse, Managing Partner of BDO Burah Hathy, was quoted in a statement by the local firm that from January 1 it would be known as BDO Partners. “Being one BDO is a challenge we share with all member firms worldwide …. a challenge solidly relying on the unique BDO experience, values and relationships. We remain focused on helping our clients navigate the ever-changing economic and market conditions by providing high quality advice and services to all our clients on a consistent basis.
This will help to ensure that we are recognised in the market as a unified global network,” he said.
CEO of BDO Jeremy Newman said, “This is a very exciting change for BDO and is the culmination of many years of strategic and operational investment and engagement. It demonstrates our member firms’ commitment to provide a seamless, integrated service delivering the highest quality advice to all our clients across the world. It confirms our position as a competitor to not only the largest, but all other businesses operating in our marketplace”.
