• Independence

Independent and Proud

  • Our custom-developed web-based tool ensures there are no conflicts of interest throughout the Firm.
  • All our audit engagements come with an independence declaration, which is confirmed by all engagement team members involved in that audit. We also ensure that all staff complete annual independence declarations.
  • Global Independence policies and procedures mitigate the likelihood of conflicts of interest occurring.
  • We pro-actively develop working papers to address issues identified during our internal and external review processes.
  • The firm provides continuous training, to ensure staff are well-equipped and knowledgeable with respect to current and new standards.
  • To ensure compliance with relevant domestic and international standards we adhere to the Global BDO Independence Manual, which sets out our Code of Conduct and ethical requirements, and the BDO International Risk Management Manual, which provides guidance on the design and implementation of risk management and quality control systems.
