Accountancy and business advisory firm, BDO LLP, is continuing to expand its office space at Temple Square in Liverpool.
The move sees the firm’s premises treble in size from 5,500 sq ft to 17,085 sq ft in a move that reinforces BDO’s ongoing commitment to the city.
The firm is scheduled to make the move in March this year, taking a 10-year lease. The new facility sees the 100-strong team take occupancy across three floors with space for up to 250 staff.
Over the next three years, BDO aims to enhance the capabilities of the Liverpool office through a partnership with various institutions across the city.
Mark Sykes, partner in Liverpool and head of BDODrive in the UK, said: “Liverpool has proved itself a real success story as a city and for BDO in recent years. With access to some of the best universities in the country and a business community boasting some of the most vibrant start-ups and globally renowned businesses, we look forward to the future success of this office”.
BDODrive - which is a blend of BDO’s advisory services, expert teams and technology platforms – was founded and developed from the Liverpool office before it was rolled out across the UK.
It was brought to market to help predominantly SME businesses take a more proactive approach to address any concerns in their business and remove barriers that could be holding these ambitious companies back.
Sykes added: “The way people work is changing and our workplaces must reflect this. Our entrepreneurial clients need us to be connected in every sense – to wider expertise within our firm, to other countries within our network and to our local business partners- to be able to help them succeed. The new office along with our on-going investment in our team and technology will allow us to evolve with our growing and ambitious clients as their business needs evolve.”
The investment in the Liverpool office will not only support the local market, but also fits with BDO’s strategy to make Liverpool the home of its Shared Services Centre.
