  • Digital Media

  • Radio and television
  • New media
  • Film
  • Music production
  • Publishing
  • Advertising
  • Visual arts

Technology companies were driving innovation and change long before COVID-19 but the pandemic has highlighted and accelerated the adoption of technology in all aspects of our lives and across every sector of the economy.

Whether you are disrupting new markets or creating new ones, we can support you throughout your business' life cycle, offering comprehensive audit, tax and advisory services. From providing assistance with international expansion, tax structuring and transfer pricing, through to transaction readiness and management reporting, we have you covered. R&D tax credits is another area we have extensive experience and success in given the innovative nature of this sector.

Our specialists deliver practical, commercial advice with a commitment to quality so your management team can focus on what they do best; attracting and retaining customers, building high performing teams and developing your technology.

Our colleagues in BDO United Kingdom have created plugd:in, where each month you can find articles that offer expertise and inspiration on key issues that you need to know about, as well as interviews with the hottest leaders in the tech and digital world.
