BDO: audit quality

In March 2013 BDO LLP completed a merger with PKF (UK) LLP, with the merged firm operating under the BDO brand. The Audit Commission undertook due diligence to satisfy itself that the new merged firm would continue to meet the Commission’s requirements, and that the contract with PKF (UK) LLP could be novated. The Audit Commission Board decided it was appropriate to novate the contract and this process was completed on 28 March 2013.

This page provides information on the quality of work provided by BDO for audits undertaken on behalf of the Audit Commission. The first public versions of the quarterly regime compliance monitoring reports are available from Quarter 3 of 2012/13.
