Job Description

Mazars Mauritius is an international, integrated and independent firm, specialising in audit, accountancy, advisory, tax and legal services. We assist major international groups, entrepreneurial and small businesses, private investors and public bodies at every stage of their development.

In a competitive profession like auditing, we’re ever aware that price is a major factor. But we also believe your audit should be more than just about placing ticks in boxes to satisfy regulators. We undertake to add value to your audit wherever we can. It’s an approach we’ve employed for decades which evolved from our ‘attention to detail’ credo. It enables us to help protect our clients’ interests while remaining ethically independent in an increasingly more regulated environment.
