BDO invests in premier office space in Guildford

Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP is poised to move into one of Guildford’s newest premier office locations as part of its continued expansion and long term investment in Surrey.

BDO is set to relocate its Guildford practice to 31 Chertsey Street in the Spring, having signed a ten year lease. It is taking more than 10,000 sq ft of the office space to accommodate its growing team.

The move comes just two years after the successful merger between PKF and BDO and demonstrates the firm’s long term commitment to Guildford, Surrey and the business community.

BDO, which has been based at Park Street for 25 years, has experienced considerable growth in the last two years with headcount almost doubling to 110 people.

UK-wide BDO employs 3,500 people across 21 offices. In the South East, BDO has offices in Guildford, Gatwick, Reading, Southampton and London.

Partner in charge of BDO in Guildford, Richard Faulkner, commented: “We have gone from strength to strength in the last two years and this was the natural next step for us.

“With our 110-strong team soon to be working together all on one floor, we are confident that we will continue to build on our success and provide even more of what our clients are looking for.”

The team at BDO acts for a wide range of mid-market businesses and individuals in Guildford and Surrey.

Richard Faulkner added: “Businesses and entrepreneurs are on a much firmer footing, with 2015 looking set to be filled with growth, investment and prosperity. Although we concentrate on local businesses, our broader national and international reach is a great asset to the majority of those we advise, especially now as the economic recovery takes hold and firms look to expand both in domestic and international markets.”
