Business Accounting

BDO has a rich history of supporting local businesses in Guernsey on their financial management. From fledgling operations to established enterprises we work with companies of all sizes in the Channel Islands.

We provide more than just traditional accounting support. You can choose to involve us at every level of your financial management, from accounts preparation and tax advice through to advising you on particular projects that require robust finance expertise.

Our Business Service professionals readily work with each client’s professional advisory team.  This sees us liaise with finance houses, the States of Guernsey and the Guernsey Registry on a daily basis. There are few problems that local businesses may encounter that we have not come across before. Indeed our Business Services team has been advising Guernsey businesses for over a century.
