BDO and Moore Stephens LLP become one firm

February 2019

BDO has completed its merger with Moore Stephens LLP, creating the largest UK accountancy and business advisory firm focused on mid-sized, entrepreneurially-spirited businesses.
 
From today, the merged firm will operate under the BDO brand and as part of BDO’s international network, which has 80,000 people and revenues of $9bn across 162 countries. 

In the UK, BDO LLP now has a combined workforce of 5,000 people across 17 locations, delivering revenues of £590m.  

The merger, which relates to the London, Birmingham, Reading, Bristol and Watford offices of Moore Stephens LLP, will make BDO the third biggest auditor of listed companies, strengthening its position as calls to improve quality and competition at the upper end of the audit market continue.
