Not a single business stream but a whole set, our seven national advisory streams deliver more than 25 distinct services between them, to a broad range of clients and markets.
As businesses grow, so do the challenges they face. BDO’s advisory services help our clients to meet these challenges at every stage of their life cycle. Such key events might include buying a new business, or exiting one in order to extract maximum value. A business might run into financial difficulties – we can help there too, stepping in to stabilise and restructure the organisation. We have other advisers who specialise in resolving legal disputes with a financial dimension (this is called forensic accounting) or in fighting fraud. A company may wish to expand internationally, float on a stock exchange, manage its risk or achieve specific long-term objectives – our advisory streams provide expert support in all these areas and more.
While retaining their own unique identities, the streams work together internally to make the most of everyone’s talents and maximise the available opportunities. Business areas include Business Restructuring, Forensic services, Global Outsourcing, Management Consulting, Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), Transaction Services, and Risk and Advisory Services.
Currently there is a fast-growing appetite among corporates for the services that we offer, so this is an area of real opportunity.
Ours is one of the most successful forensic practices in the UK.
