Shared values, strong relationships

At BDO we understand the huge contribution that the Not-for-Profit sector and charitable organisations contribute to the New Zealand economy.  We know that Not-for-Profit organisations are founded upon strong relations – a value that BDO shares and is known for.

Our people understand the importance of Not-for-Profits and Charities and we have empowered all of our offices to be the local leading experts in this sector. We have spent a considerable amount of resources training our people to understand the characteristics of the Not-for-Profit sector including its unique accounting requirements.

We are acknowledged as leading experts in auditing Not-for-Profits and Charities and have developed templates for Tier 1 and Tier 2 Charities, as well as Statements on a Page (SOAP’s) which are used throughout the sector to demystify accounting standards.

At BDO we recognise that Not-for-Profit is for the benefit of communities and does not mean that they can receive second rate services.  Our Not-for-Profits and Charities clients advocate for us on a regular basis due to the exceptional client service which they receive.

Throughout New Zealand and internationally through the BDO network, we represent a large number of Not-for-Profit organisations. This gives us a genuine appreciation of the issues you face. We can help you with:

What our clients think...

"The Fred Hollows Foundation carries on the work of a legendary New Zealander, the late Professor Fred Hollows. Sharing Professor Fred Hollows’ vision of a world where no one is needlessly blind, we work to restore sight and train local eye health specialists across Asia, Africa and the Pacific.

BDO provide us with external audit, tax advisory and IT consultancy services for our group consolidation. We engaged BDO IT Services to build a spreadsheet using a consolidation app which catered for our multiple entities across multiple currencies. The Group consolidation is now performed within a matter of minutes versus the several hours it previously took and is much more reliable.

BDO Audit Partner, Wayne Monteith is pragmatic and collaborative and has been instrumental in achieving a successful outcome for us. Having just completed another year’s audit, it was an absolute pleasure to have the team here and the previous year’s two weeks onsite was reduced to four days and sign off achieved much earlier than in the past.”
