BDO History

Five accounting firms from Canada, Germany, Netherlands, UK and the USA came together in 1963 to form the Binder Seidman International Group, which became the foundation for the current day BDO Global.  Ten years on, in 1973, the British, Dutch and German member firms adopted the common name Binder Dijker & Otte Co – the acronym of the firm’s name gave life to the BDO of today.   

Celebrating its 50th year in 2013, BDO’s global network is now in more than 162 countries, with more than  73,854 people working out of over 1,500 offices generating a worldwide fee income exceeding US$ 8.1 billion.
