Dominance of Big Four boon for BDO

Dominance of the Big Four firns in traditional accounting brings advantages for BDO

give a boost mid-tier rival BDO
Stoy Hayward
as it secures restructuring work they are unable to take on,
according to Simon Michaels, BDO managing partner.

He told the Financial Times it was more likely the Big Four would
find conflicts with their regular work, such as audit or advisory, for
struggling companies, leaving his group to pick up the pieces.

BDO has taken on the administration of Dawnay Day, the property and financial
services group, and the independent valuation of Northern Rock, the nationalised
bank, which are among its biggest projects.

‘We find ourselves less conflicted than the Big Four so I can only see it
going one way with us getting more of the work,’ he said.
