Who we work with
Our Partners have become the trusted advisers to a broad range of clients within construction, including those in:
- Commercial construction
- Residential construction
- Civil construction
- Property developers
- Property professionals (including architects, engineers and property managers)
Construction in New Zealand has seen huge growth in the past two decades. Commercial construction remains strong, with large pipelines of ongoing work, and infrastructure will continue to be a key focus for the government for an extended period of time. Residential construction, however, is experiencing challenges, yet there is still a housing shortage. With the sector relying on alternative means of financing, it's important to seek guidance from someone who understands these trends and knows where to move next.
We offer the full range of business advisory services, including accounting, tax, advisory, corporate finance and insolvency services, and we tailor our services to meet the needs of the varying cycles of activity and profitability that the industry goes through. Our years of experience and knowledge in construction means we'll guide you through these issues with the nuances and peculiarities of the sector in mind.
Our specialist services:
- Strategic advice
- Risk management
- Succession planning and exit planning
- Setting up appropriate managing accounting and reporting systems
- Advice on IT and technological innovation
- Financial and cashflow forecasting and management
Our specialist knowledge means that, for many, BDO is the main port of call for the industry advice they need. For example, one of the construction industry's main software providers had worked with a broad range of accountants in the past, but found that only BDO had the in-depth sector knowledge required to truly be able to help. Similarly, after helping one of our clients to sell their construction business, we ended up being appointed by the business' new purchaser as their accountant because of our industry expertise. We helped the purchaser to set up an employee share scheme and gave them a broad range of strategic and risk management advice.
