BDO History

A global Beginning

In 1963 alliances were created with like-minded firms in the US, UK Canada, Germany and the Netherlands with an unfailing commitment to exceptional client service. In 1973, the British, German and Dutch member firms adopted a common name whose acronym has endured for the entire global network.

BDO stands for Binder Dijker Otte.

By the 1980s, the global network had been established – and the firm was renamed BDO Seidman. The firm quickly expanded both its services and geographic reach.


Growth in Mauritius

BDO emanated from DCDM, a firm founded in Mauritius in 1952. BDO is a firm of Chartered Accountants, registered with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. 

DCDM joined the BDO network in 2007 as BDO DCDM and as of 2010, became known as BDO Mauritius.
