BDO HAS WELCOMED Barbados-based Ward, Patel & Co Chartered Accountants into its arms as a member firm.

BDO’s International network has 101 member firms (since 30 September 2011), operates in 135 countries, employs about 48,767, and has about 1,118 offices.

The Barbados firm was originally set up by the two current managing partners, who will both join the BDO network. They take with them two senior managers and nine professional staff.

Martin van Roekel, CEO of BDO International, said “Our new firm in Barbados joins a vibrant BDO region with an already significant international client base and a reputation for strong local market knowledge, broad industry expertise and excellent technical skills.

BDO will certainly provide the firm with the opportunity to develop and grow their business, and I look forward to seeing commensurate growth in the region as a whole”.

Currently the Barbados firm accounts for 73% of its revenues from audit work, but also provides consulting and tax services.
