In 2023, BDO USA booked revenues of $2.89 billion; it also established an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan), the largest of its kind in the accounting industry. BDO’s ESOP provides participating professionals a beneficial ownership stake in the firm.

BDO USA provides assurance, tax, and advisory services to a wide range of publicly traded and privately held companies. The firm's industry expertise includes consumer services; financial services; government and public sector; government contracting; healthcare and life sciences; manufacturing; natural resources; nonprofit and education; private equity; professional services; real estate and construction; and technology.

BDO's roots date back to 1910 when 22-year-old immigrant Maximilian Seidman, who grew up in a tenement on Manhattan's Lower East Side, opened a one-room office on New York City’s Park Row. In 1917, Seidman & Seidman opened a second office in Michigan, where the firm had an early focus on furniture manufacturers. In 1963, Seidman became international in scope, joining firms from Germany, Canada, the Netherlands, and the U.K. to form an organization called Binder Seidman International Group. This name was changed to Binder Dijker Otte (BDO) in 1973, in honor of the three European founding members of the organization; hence BDO International.

The U.S. member firm retained the name “Seidman,” inherited from its founder. In 2010, BDO Seidman joined BDO member firms worldwide in adopting BDO as its brand name, dropping Seidman. Along with the establishment of an ESOP in 2023, the firm changed its statutory name to BDO USA, P.C.
