The firm delivers audit, accounting, bookkeeping, tax compliance, HR / Payroll, legal and outsourcing services to a wide range of local and international companies, with a focus on clients in the retail sector, estate and not for profit sectors.

Managing partner Didier De Launay is delighted to be joining the BDO network at this point in the firm’s development: “Our firm enjoys a good reputation for having both a strong client base and excellent service delivery and BDO stands out in this respect because no other network is set up to adapt to individual clients and provide the right service mix for them. At BDO, as in our firm, relationships matter, and we look forward to being part of a collaborative international organisation whose global expertise, common methodologies and IT platforms will ensure an even more effective service delivery to our clients."

“At BDO we are actively increasing our presence in the economies that we know are central to our clients’ growth strategies, and expanding our presence in Africa allows us not only to increase our footprint, but to offer a greater depth of services, combined with essential local expertise. BDO in Réunion has already shown both dedication and a commitment to providing consistently quality professional services and it is a great pleasure to welcome such a firm to BDO,” says Anders Heede, Global head of BDO’s EMEA region.
