THE PARTNER VOTE at BDO and PKF on the planned merger of the firms is due to be completed this week, Accountancy Age understands.

Partners are expected to vote on the merger at both firms by Friday this week, with the votes to be counted by early next week.

BDO and PKF are planning to make a public announcement before Christmas as to whether the merger will go ahead, although experts predict it is unlikely there will be any roadblocks.

A merged entity would create a firm with more than £400m in revenues, with 3,500 staff.

BDO managing partner Simon Michaels (pictured) has said the firms "share a closely aligned vision to lead in the mid-market, as well as similar cultures and a commitment to deliver exceptional client service".
