We are very pleased to introduce the 2014/2015 transparency report for Mazars Ireland.
Specialising in audit, advisory, accountancy, tax and legal services, Mazars is a leading integrated and independent organisation whose international dimensions are expanding every year.
As of August 31, 2015, Mazars is present in 74 countries around the world, with 15,500 highly qualified professionals. Our consolidated turnover for the year 2014-2015 is €1,252.7M, an increase of 15.9% over last year’s result, at a constant exchange rate.
Mazars is an integrated and independent partnership, bound by a common set of values. We believe that it is our common values and common goals that give our partnership the vitality and unity that permits us to work with clients nationally and internationally in a seamless and consistently excellent fashion, wherever these clients chose to operate.
Mazars has a long-standing commitment to the principle that audit and accountancy firms, by virtue of our role in relation to the accountability of public interest entities, should hold themselves to the highest standards of transparency and accountability. Accordingly, we have voluntarily published our own audited financial statements for a number of years.
This report explains our structure in more detail. It seeks to communicate how we use our structure to assure quality in all that we do, and to manage the risks associated with our business. It also introduces you to our people, our activities and to the places in Ireland and internationally where you will find Mazars teams.
Our firm has grown consistently over the past decade and our goal remains to grow in a sustainable fashion so we may serve our clients. We believe in the importance of the audit, accounting and advisory services, that we provide both to our clients and to society as a whole. As we look forward to a year where audit regulations will change significantly we continue to emphasise our commitment to the importance of this service to the functioning of the economy.
I hope that you find this report a good guide to our firm and how we organise ourselves and perform.
Mazars Ireland, November 2015
