BDO’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19 AND OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU

18 March 2020

Dear clients and friends,

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe, I want to take a moment to let you know what BDO is doing to respond to this public health emergency.

First and foremost, BDO’s number one priority is the safety and well-being of our people, clients, families, and the communities in which we live and work. We’ve assembled a cross-disciplinary team to monitor the COVID-19 public health emergency and to put measures in place that help ensure both safety for our people and business continuity for our clients. We are assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant, and following all recommendations from the local authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO). BDO continues to develop, update and share guidance with our professionals so they are fully informed on how to protect themselves, their families and their clients against possible transmission of the virus. You can find this information on our BDO website.

Please be assured that while we remain focused on the health and safety of our professionals and those around us, we also are focused on continued service to our clients. We have taken steps to make sure we can continue to deliver the level of quality, excellence and timeliness you are accustomed to from us during these unique circumstances. BDO has long been committed to a flexible work place, and we have the technological, cultural and operational infrastructure for our organization to work virtually. Our office will remain open during business hours however, please contact us by telephone or email.

As we navigate this time of uncertainty together, I want to reaffirm BDO’s core purpose: helping people thrive, every day. I hope that you and your loved ones are well, and we are here if you need us.

Best regards,
Gerd Glaudemans
