Here at Steensma Novotny PLC, we’re proud members of the BDO Alliance USA. Partnership with the Alliance requires that members provide a certain level of service to clients, but more than that, it works to provide a great deal of benefits to our clients. Since we know many who aren’t familiar with the accounting world might not be aware of the BDO Alliance USA, we thought we’d explain a bit about what it is, and how it helps our clients. Let’s start with the basics:

What is the BDO Alliance USA?

BDO Alliance USA is a coalition of more than 400 independent CPA, consulting, and financial advisory firms. All pooled together, the Alliance is one of BDO’s largest clients, which means we have access to many of the same benefits and services as domestic and international BDO branches themselves. While our firm is completely autonomous, we are united with other Alliance members in our fierce dedication to our clients, our caliber of service, and in our spirit of collaboration for all members’ mutual benefit. BDO is the fifth largest accounting and consulting network, which means that small to mid-sized business members of the BDO Alliance USA have access to services typically only reserved for the largest size international accounting firms.

How does the Alliance help our clients?

Every member of the BDO Alliance USA is united in their goal of providing top-of-the-line service to their clients, in a way that’s both personalized and exceptional. To further that effort, each member of the Alliance has access to other members’ knowledge and services, and receives immediate support from BDO in just a phone call. This extension of our own accounting, consulting, and financial advising services means we’re able to answer even the toughest international questions in a short period of time, and expands our firm’s overall level of service. Just a few of the benefits of our BDO Alliance USA membership include:

  • Enhanced services for our clients
