How do we work?

"Audit is at the core of Mazars’ business. As a single, integrated partnership, our deeply rooted local teams work as one to provide audit, assurance and reporting services of the highest technical excellence. We take responsibility for every audit opinion we issue, using our expertise and independence to do what is right for our clients and for the public interest. Our goal is to offer clients an agile and authentic approach built on a fundamental belief that trust in business will foster fairer economies, beneficial to greater society." (Rick Chan, Partner - Head of Audit & Assurance)

Our approach 

Demands for greater financial transparency and proof of organisational sustainability are coming from many sides, including regulators, investors, and other stakeholders. The result: today’s reports are expected to go beyond reporting financials and embrace strategy, quality of governance, remuneration schemes, and even the organisation’s impact on the environment, employees, society and other stakeholders.

This growing list of requirements has already placed a heavy burden on leadership teams and is likely to expand further. At Mazars, we have a strong track record helping our clients to meet – and exceed – the very latest corporate reporting standards. 

We bring together a team of professionals combining financial reporting and accounting knowledge with non-financial reporting expertise to deliver a pragmatic business approach. 

We regularly support our clients offering them integrated solutions in the following areas: 

Financial aspects

  • Implementing new accounting standards; 
  • Addressing complexities arising from proposed new accounting standards and guidance;
  • GAAP conversions;
  • Mergers and acquisitions;
  • Consolidations support;
  • Group reorganisations;
  • Complex consolidations;
  • Financing structures;
  • Capital reductions;
  • Purchase price allocation valuations;
  • Share-based payment valuations;
  • Pension scheme arrangements;
  • Infrastructure projects.

Non-financial aspects

  • Developing non-financial, integrated annual reports; 
  • Assisting with establishing corporate governance risk disclosures;
  • Collecting and collating nonfinancial data to support reporting to management, the board and external disclosures;
  • Identifying key performance indicators;
  • Providing support on developing integrated reporting frameworks.

Our “Beyond the GAAP” monthly newsletter highlights our approach and our expertise, offering insights into the thinking of national and international accounting standards bodies plus other organisations that can affect corporate reporting such as securities regulators.
