bdp: One-stop service for more than 25 years

Experienced consultants can generate value through supporting companies in various topics, e.g. in conducting effective evaluation and analysis for production and operation processes, establishing a modern management system, recommending and assisting in implementation of relevant actions to raise business benefits.

Especially SMEs must ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations abroad, e.g. in aspects of tax, legal, foreign exchange and customs.

Within more than 25 years bdp efficiently supported several hundred of clients in the fields of auditing, tax, legal, financing, process optimization, internal control, restructuring and M&A. It is our intrinsic goal to consult SMEs and their subsidiaries in their interest and to maintain an overview on their behalf of frequently changing requirements by taxation, company, labor and accounting laws.
