BDO has added a new member firm in the Palestinian territories.

Formerly Harvard for Accounting, Auditing & Tax Services, the new BDO firm will be known as BDO Accounting, Audit & Tax Services.

Based in Ramallah the firm has three partners and six staff focused on providing audit & accounting, tax, advisory and corporate finance services to banks and international NGOs.

BDO EMEA chief executive Anders Heede said the firm’s three partners, "have the vision and the ability to succeed in a relatively under-developed market and I’m certain that their collaboration with BDO member firms across the world will be mutually beneficial".
