BDO History


People Who Know, Know BDO


The story of our development is a perfect example of the rapid response to changing market conditions and customer needs.

BDO organization was founded in Europe in 1963, when progressive-minded accounting firms in Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, the United States and Canada came together to share and expand your knowledge, and to support cross-national operations and customers. We were known as the Binder Seidman International Group, and since 1973 changed the name to Binder Dijker Otte & Co - BDO.

The beginning of the modern world structure of the organization began in 1988 when it was decided to use the acronym in front of the names of local BDO member firms.
This, along with the introduction of a new logo and a global brand, clearly demonstrated that the local experience of our member firms has been merged with the international experience and the strength of our international network.

Since then, our network has continued to evolve in response to customer needs, which led to a change in our name in 2009 to just BDO. Such transition to a single global name demonstrates our commitment to serve customers on a seamless high level and compete successfully in the international arena.

Today, BDO is number five in the world of international auditing and consulting network.
