Here at Mazars, our main aim is to give our clients a clear insight into their corporate strategy, business processes and financial reports. We provide a range of audit, reporting, corporate governance and risk management services.

We have raised the bar when it comes to quality as we know how important reliable information is. So, we will help you manage your operational and financial risks and make sure that the processes within your organisation run more efficiently. We are here to support you and help you make the right business decisions.

Mazars is well recognised internationally. We are audit experts in insurance, banking, industry and services - as well as public organisations and associations.

We currently audit more than 850 listed companies across Europe. For example, in France, Mazars audits 11 companies from the CAC 40 and 41 from the SBF 120.

Our audit approach is based around the fundamental principle of professional independence. We do not undertake engagements which are deemed to be incompatible with our audit activities, and we have a rigorous system of controls to prevent conflicts of interest. Our principles are laid out in full in our Code of Conduct for Objectivity and Independence.

The EU Audit Reform paves the way for a new audit environment in Europe

Launched in 2010, the legislative process of the EU Audit Reform (EAR) reached an end as the new Regulation and the amended Directive were put to vote by the European Parliament on 3 April 2014. Succeeding this process, the European Commission granted EU Member States two years to implement the new legislation. This period officially ended on 17 June 2016.
