BDO Malaysia has added the partners and staff of UHY Penang and Grant Thornton Law & Associates (GTLA) in Cambodia.
GTLA staff are all leaving Grant Thornton following the network’s decision to establish a new firm in the country. They will join BDO Malaysia as it fully supports BDO’s Cambodian business.
BDO Cambodia will have more than 30 staff, mainly serving listed companies as the firm is one of three accredited by the Securities Exchange Commission of Cambodia.
UHY Penang will become part of BDO Malaysia’s northern practice office, which now has 70 staff and partners.
Across the country, BDO Malaysia will have close to 600 staff, including 40 partners and directors.
BDO Malaysia and regional senior partner for Asia-Pacific Gan Ah Tee said that with the firms expanded presence and capabilities, “we are in a better position to serve our clients wherever they are, in line with BDO’s client proximity proposition”.
Both firms will become a part of the BDO Malaysia network from 1 July.
