Delivering a range of statutory accounting and financial reporting advisory services, the Financial Reporting team partners with clients to help support and solve their reporting challenges.

The BSO Financial Reporting (FR) team delivers a range of services designed to help both established and ambitious businesses navigate the complications associated with accounting and financial reporting so that they can focus on what matters and reduce the strains on their teams. We pride ourselves on a personal approach focused on our clients’ business needs and bringing real, practical solutions.

Our FR team has a passion for helping clients and finding practical ways of supporting them in their plans, whether they are long-established multi-nationals or a start-up. We treat each business as unique, offering a bespoke service focussed on their specific needs. Only after understanding a client’s particular business goals and challenges will we deploy the expertise of a leading global firm of accountants to deliver practical solutions and real answers.

As a BSO Financial Reporting Trainee, you’ll be a valuable part of a team specialising in the preparation of statutory financial statements under both UK and international financial reporting standards. It’s a varied and challenging remit that involves providing complex technical accounting advice, assisting clients with accurate migration and translation between other reporting standards and conversion to new accounting standards.
Our FR clients include listed and limited companies and groups across a wide range of sectors – including Life Sciences, Energy, Mining & Industrials, Financial Services & Technology, Media & Telecoms – so you can expect the experience and skills you’ll develop to be just as diverse.


In the FR team, we’ll provide constant opportunities for development, ensuring that you’re continually learning and given the tools and support to succeed.

Our Graduate and School Leaver programmes offer the opportunity to develop in one of the industry’s most exciting and varied roles, giving you the training you need to gain a full understanding of the range of services BDO offers. Our structured development programmes last three to four years and during this time we will support you in studying for your professional qualifications (ACA) while developing your own unique career path.

As a BSO Financial Reporting Trainee, your Graduate or Apprenticeship programme will include a secondment to our Audit stream, broadening your horizons and setting you up for the best possible future.

If you can show initiative and the potential for exceptional problem-solving skills, you’ll gain a unique insight into how business works across the world.
