The BDO companies collaborate across national boundaries and follow similar principles of operation that were specifically developed for the European business environment.

BDO is the only major global network of audit firms that was established in Europe. The history of BDO reaches back to 1963, when individual audit firms from the UK, the Netherlands and Germany founded a joint chain of audit firms. After a decade, the European member companies adopted the name BDO, which was based on the founders’ names Binder, Dijker and Otte. The current BDO company structure dates from 1988, which is also the year the current logo was created.
