Chicago/Brussels – BDO, one of the world’s leading global networks of independent public accounting firms, has announced that worldwide revenue for all BDO Member Firms (including the exclusive members of Member Firms’ Alliances) for the year ended September 30, 2015, amounted to $7.3 billion. This represents year on year growth of 12.95%, at constant exchange rates.  Revenues from assurance services accounted for 59 percent of combined fee income, with tax and advisory services representing 20.4 percent and 20.6 percent respectively. 
BDO, the IAB 2015 Network of the Year Award winner, now has more than 64,000 total staff operating from 1,408 offices in 154 countries around the globe.  All regions experienced tangible revenue growth, led by the Americas (+22%) and the Asia Pacific (+10%).  The network added new member firms in Greece, Kazakhstan, Rwanda, New Caledonia, Honduras, Nicaragua and the West Bank. 
BDO's growth has been driven by sustained organic growth and 19 strategic expansions taking place in Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa and the United States.  For the second consecutive year, BDO USA led all member firms in both revenue growth and expansions, with the firm adding significant resources from the former UHY in Texas, SS&G in Ohio and Illinois, Stone Carlie in St. Louis and Cross, Fernandez & Riley in Central Florida.
