  • History


From an original office in Smith Street, St Peter Port Guernsey to membership in a global network across more than 167 countries, we’re proud of our journey so far.​

​When English accountancy firm G.N. Read, Son & Cocke  established its Guernsey branch in 1900, the accountancy profession in Guernsey was a fraction of what it is today.  Over the coming century, the firm evolved into The Reads Group.  The core accountancy, auditing and tax services of the business grew and in 1990 we became BDO.  ​

​As a member firm of the global BDO organisation that spans 164 territories and 1,728 offices worldwide, we’re a significant employer in Guernsey with a client portfolio across Guernsey’s asset management, insurance, commercial and private wealth industries.  ​

​Our sense of legacy is very much alive and as we look to the future, we are united under a common purpose – helping people and businesses to succeed, every day.
