“During the past accounting period, we have been particularly successful in achieving our objectives to create an inspiring atmosphere with respect to the digital transformation, learning and helping customers through the use of modern and efficient approaches. The growth in revenues is driven by our motivated and enthusiastic professionals. By working together and helping each other, we establish an environment that also creates value for our clients,” says Taneli Mustonen, Managing Director of BDO Finland.
The number of professionals at BDO Finland increased by 16.7%, to 216 people, during the accounting period. In addition to the steady growth in the number of permanent personnel, we provided trainee positions to about 30 experts in the early stages of their careers during the accounting period.
We serve our clients throughout Finland. After the end of the accounting period, we opened a new regional office in Vaasa, which is our 15th office in Finland.

By helping each other, we also help our clients in the best possible manner.
