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 and Assurance)

Our approach 

We work with a broad range of clients, from privately owned businesses to some of the largest corporations in the world. With specialist teams dedicated to key markets and across all industry sectors, we can provide the expertise you need. Engaging Mazars means that you will benefit from an integrated, cross-border team with a single point of contact. 

Providing a quality audit means delivering insight, promoting transparency and providing constructive challenge, which leads to enhancing trust in how organisations report to their stakeholders. But it does not stop there: a robust, independent audit contributes to building a dependable control and governance framework to help future-proof the organisations we audit.

We believe audit is first and foremost about people. We focus on building positive, effective relationships that build trust and deliver demonstrable value. Each Mazars audit is unique. We take the time to understand the business model, culture and ecosystem of the audited company, and consider the needs of its stakeholders, tailoring the audit strategy to the specific risks identified. 

Starting with a careful transition, and then throughout the audit process, we are in constant dialogue with all relevant stakeholders with clear, pragmatic and timely communication. We pride ourselves on our rigour, independence of thought, perseverance and robustness. Supported by the latest technology, global methodology and processes, we provide reliable, objective and insightful judgements and opinions. 

Mazars keeps developing its audit offering through continuously investing in people, processes, training and technology. We have developed a suite of tools within Atlas, our global audit platform, to enable the delivery of consistent and efficient quality audits that deliver value. Our global audit innovation programme, ‘Reinventing Audit’ enables us to respond to the needs and interests of our clients identified through regular client surveys.

With this distinctive, human-centric approach, tools and programme, we deliver an augmented audit experience. One that goes beyond just compliance and contributes to the development of sustainable businesses, economies and societies.
