BDO announces new firm in Belize
BDO is pleased to announce the admission of a new firm in Belize, which will also serve Turks & Caicos, effective 1 April 2018.
Formerly part of the Crowe Horwath network – and, in the past, of a number of other large global accounting organisations – the new BDO firm in Belize was founded in 1972 and employs a total of 15 partners and staff, working out of one office and serving over 80 clients. The services they offer include audit, outsourcing, tax and consulting and their industry expertise is focused on financial institutions, hotels, agriculture and NGOs. BDO in Belize is the only firm in the country to be registered with the US Public Companies Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
BDO Belize’s founding partner, Stanley Ermeav, says that he is very proud to be joining BDO: “Our firm’s core purpose is to deliver outstanding services to our clients, so we are very much in tune with BDO’s exceptional client service brand promise. With an overarching mindset of ‘the best or nothing’, our partners and staff subscribe to principles and values that enable us to deliver high quality, cost effective and timely services consistently”.
Albert Lopez, BDO’s Regional CEO Americas, adds: “I’m delighted to welcome this new firm to BDO, which already has an excellent reputation in its local market. BDO’s expansion strategy has focused on critical players and Stanley Ermeav and his team represent an important milestone in the development of BDO in the region: with the addition of this new firm, we now have a footprint in every country in Central America. With their emphasis on the importance of teamwork and mutual respect, I am confident that BDO Belize will help to ensure that our clients right across the Americas can benefit from the combined expertise of all BDO firms - while at the same time find the service capabilities to fulfil their complex needs at local level”.
