We have made it our goal to provide the best possible quality of service and support in matters relating to auditing and consulting. By offering reliable facts and figures, premium services and feasible solutions, we allow you to weigh up the possible courses of action and take measures in order to secure and build upon your position. Regardless of the size of your company, its legal form or industry, you can always count on our intensive, personal support. A regular, central contact is responsible for every aspect of client care and coordinates the exchange of information with specialists from our various departments. This BDO client service partner is responsible for coordinating the exchange of information with specialists from our wide range of specialist areas and ensures that the processes of coordination and reaching agreements are swift, smooth and binding.

Every industry is subject to its own rules, and each market has its own special features. Our staff at the BDO Industry Expertise Centres are at home in your respective areas; they are familiar with the industries and markets. With interdisciplinary teams of experts, we offer full service across all industries. Our portfolio includes all branches of industry, including regulated industries such as banking and financial services or insurance, and it extends to municipal operators, institutions in the public sector and non-profit organisations.

We specifically focus on international growth markets. For example, the intercultural team of German and Chinese employees from our China desk offers German companies individual and personal advice on founding and establishing new businesses in China. And it advises Chinese companies on investment projects in Germany.

1 It should be noted that the revenue figures shown here are not equal to the figures in the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with German commercial law but instead show the figures of the BDO Group incl. the following companies.
Unitesta Revisions- und Treuhandgesellschaft mbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Oldenburg, UNIVERSA Prüfungs- und Treuhandgesellschaft mbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Hamburg und BDO Legal Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, Hamburg

The global BDO Network uniformly reports its financial figures for the duration of Oct. 1 until Sept. 30. of the following year. The figures shown here for 2023 are therefore valid for the time period ranging from Oct. 1 2022 until Sept. 30, 2023 and are therefore not entirely comparable to those made in the consolidated financial statements of the BDO AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft as per June 30th, 2023..
