BDO loses blur audit to KPMG

KPMG has wrested control of blur group’s audit account from BDO.

The Exeter-based services-commerce company said the change in auditor would happen with immediate effect.

Robert Brooksbank, chairman of blur’s audit committee, said: “We thank BDO for their contribution as blur’s auditors and we look forward to working with KPMG going forward.”

KPMG will now be responsible for the statutory audit for the year ended 31 December 2014.

Last year’s audit fees were worth £129,000, while non-audit fees came in at £34,000.

Blur’s s-commerce platform, the Global Services Exchange, streamlines and automates the buying, delivery and payment of services. Its customers include Amazon, Danone, the Financial Times, and Butlins.
