BDO History

Five accounting firms from Canada, Germany, Netherlands, UK and the USA came together in 1963 to form the Binder Seidman International Group, which became the foundation for the current day BDO Global.  Ten years on, in 1973, the British, Dutch and German member firms adopted the common name Binder Dijker & Otte Co – the acronym of the firm’s name gave life to the BDO of today.   

Celebrating its 50th year in 2013, BDO’s global network is now in more than 150 countries, with more than 64,000 people working out of over 1,400 offices generating a worldwide fee income exceeding US$7 billion.

BDO Malaysia’s legacy is closely intertwined with our global history.  Established in 1964, with a staff force of 6 in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan; BDO Malaysia now service our clients with a well-qualified and experienced team of individuals from our offices in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Bahru in Malaysia as well as through our regional operations in Brunei, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam.

Today, our drive to assist businesses remains as strong as ever.  With our eye on opportunities available both in Malaysia, the ASEAN region and beyond, we look forward to moving on strong with our clients, through our people, collectively.
