BDO Australia acquires PKF tax team

BDO Perth has acquired PKF Australia’s Perth tax team.

The acquisition includes five tax partners, 50 staff and annual revenue of A$12m ($10.9m). This boosts BDO’s Perth tax division staff to 110 and total staff to about 230.

The partners are Mark Pollock, Craig Melville, John Murray, Marc Loftus and Joe Evangelista.

BDO national chairman Tony Schiffmann said the addition of the PKF tax experts is part of the firm’s broader national strategy.

“BDO is enhancing its specialist services to meet soaring client demand. This reinforces BDO’s focus on expanding its key sectors, including natural resources,” Schiffmann said.

“BDO believes that every client has distinctively different needs. We are proactive in anticipating the changing needs of our clients by ensuring we can provide the right expertise in the most appropriate places.”

Big Four firm Deloitte has also acquired three audit partners from PKF Perth.

Schiffmann said PKF no longer has a presence in Perth, which is Australia’s fourth largest city and the largest city in the state of Western Australia.
