Acquisition of Baker Tilly Gibraltar

02 August 2018

BDO in Gibraltar is pleased to announce that on 1 August 2018 it acquired the business of Baker Tilly Gibraltar. This results in the addition of one partner and 19 employees to the BDO Gibraltar team.

BDO Gibraltar Managing Director, Desiree McHard, says the development is a key part of BDO’s business strategy, both in Gibraltar and globally, to double the revenue of the organisation by the end of 2018 through the addition of new accounting, advisory, fiduciary and payroll services, as well as an enhanced audit offering.

“The integration of Baker Tilly Gibraltar into BDO will create a larger firm in Gibraltar with complementary services, thus positioning the combined firm as a market leader and a credible alternative to the four largest auditing firms in Gibraltar. This transaction will allow us to develop greater specialist areas and ensure continued focus on the delivery of exceptional client service to our clients. Baker Tilly Gibraltar is a leading provider of its services in Gibraltar, and we are delighted to welcome them to BDO, one of the largest global accounting organisations in the world.”

Ian Collinson, Managing Director of Baker Tilly Gibraltar, said: “BDO’s local firm has a great reputation for quality in its audit offering. Our services are complementary and we very much look forward to leveraging from the strength of the combined operation to support our growing client base.”

The fee income of the member firms in the BDO network, including the members of their exclusive alliances, was US$ 8.1 billion in 2017. These public accounting, tax and advisory firms provide professional services in 162 countries, with 73,854 people working out of 1,500 offices worldwide.
