Mazars, one of the key transparency players on the market place, joined the iniciative of the Aliance for transparent business in 2010. Mazars has chosen to respect the same strict standards of performance evaluation as those expected from its clients.
Mazars have a strong will to bring its long-term contribution in terms of transparency and transparency reporting approach. First of all with the voluntary publication of the Mazars Group’s annual report including consolidated IFRS financial statements certified by independent auditors since 2004/2005. We started to comply with the statutory audit directive for the transparency report as soon as 2006. Since 2009, also the Czech Republic´s transparency report is published.
And it´s also a reason why we – as a corporate member of the American Chamber of Commerce in the Czech Republic - strongly support and join in the Platform for Transparent Public Tenders in the Czech Republic. We consider that the Recommendations for the Public Tenders Suppliers on Disclosure of Information can play an important role in the recovery of trust in the Czech legal system and overall business environment, claimed by the broadest corporate strata.In that context, we make our best to contribute actively to all the debates relating to our professional and legal environments as well as the standards ruling our activity.
