Mazars Ireland Transparency Report 13/14

Delivering collective value

We are pleased to introduce the 2013/2014 transparency report for Mazars in Ireland.

Specialising in audit, advisory, accountancy, tax and legal services, Mazars is a leading integrated and independent organization whose international dimensions are expanding every year.

As of August 31, 2014, Mazars is present in 72 countries around the world, with more than 14,088 highly qualified professionals. Our consolidated turnover for the year 2013-2014 is €1,080.80M, an increase of 3.4% over last year’s result.

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.

Mazars is an integrated global partnership. This contrasts with the majority of participants in the marketplace, who have adopted, historically, network, affiliate and franchise models.

We have adopted the integrated partnership structure because we believe that the integrated model uniquely provides a level of interconnection in a global business. This, we believe, benefits us by challenging us to operate together to achieve common goals. It benefits our clients by providing them with a seamless service wherever they choose to operate.

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. 

In the last decade, the core team of Mazars professional staff has grown from 3,000 to 14,088. Throughout that period of growth we have sought always to adhere to our core principles and to our belief in the importance of audit, accounting and advisory services that we provide. We are committed to continuing our commitment to and investment in the delivery of these services in the public interest.
