Grow your future in our BDO whānau

BDO New Zealand has a strong culture, built on the principle that our people form the basis of everything we do. We seek people who are driven and who work towards the best interests of the team and the firm - passionate professionals who are keen to develop richer relationships, both internally and with our clients.

In today's ever-changing business environment, we understand the importance of being able to move with clients and support them in the new ventures and directions that they take. This also means that as the market changes, so do the needs of our people. We are responsive to these changes, ensuring that staff have the skills they need to take them to the next level.

BDO comprises over 111,000 people globally and generated US$11.8 billion last year. However, in New Zealand we are a collection of individually owned small to medium sized organisations, much like our clients. Our unique blend of close partner contact, and access to genuine industry and subject matter experts works well for our 

Our service lines

As businesses grow, so do the challenges they face. Our Advisory team provides personalised services to our clients based on their unique needs and to meet the challenges at every stage of their life cycle. As business owners ourselves, we understand the importance of managing our client’s businesses, family and personal wealth simultaneously.

We take our time to get to know our clients really well, comparing where they are now with where they want to be, and taking a good look at how they are currently doing things so we can offer real value.  One of the best bits about working for BDO is that you work with these clients from day one. This means you get to see and hear first-hand how the work we do helps our clients.


"The main skill that I have learnt is that it is all about people. Whether clients or your team, you need to have the skills that allow you to relate to people from all walks of life. BDO comes to life for me through all the amazing people I meet within the network. We are a National team of passionate individuals who really care about our respective communities."

We have a lower professional staff to partner ratio than our major competitors, enabling more time for partners to be actively involved in the audit. BDO has a focus on the future. This can often be seen as an oxymoron for auditors as we are usually so focused on the past and historic performance. While it is important to report accurate historical performance, we believe that this can be done in a way that is future focused.

BDO’s sweet spot lies in the SME market, backing New Zealand led businesses. Utilising world class audit methodology and a pragmatic approach, our audit teams provide real value to our clients across nearly all industries in the SME and larger sectors in NZ. We service both for-profit and community focussed entities and use our global approach to provide quality services with a NZ context. Our audit teams work collaboratively across NZ.

Our approach of a local firm combined with the skills and expertise of a large and international firm. We offer the best of both worlds – the personal relationship-driven approach of a local firm combined with the skills and expertise of a large and international firm.



“Two things set BDO apart from other accounting firms; the people and the unique market space that BDO operates in. Our clients are all doing big and exciting things and here you get to be a part of it at every stage. All the way from graduate to manager level, you’re getting exposure to both BDO’s clients and the key business issues they present.”  

- Ahmed Shaker, BDO Auckland

Tax touches all aspects of people’s lives. If you are creative and enjoy problem solving, then tax could be right for you. Our team of tax specialists back businesses with practical, innovative and robust solutions.

Our nationwide team of Tax experts take time to understand their client’s goals, before providing practical, jargon-free tax solutions to help them achieve them. We give our clients peace of mind over their tax affairs, so that they can concentrate on growing their business.


“The work is always interesting and challenging and includes compliance work such as tax return preparation, year-end tax calculations and deferred tax and consulting work including structuring advice, mergers and acquisitions and tax due diligence. Every day is different and you never know what is around the corner, that’s what makes tax so interesting.”

- Yavik Solanki, Tax Partner
