Budgeting and forecasting

In a world that is uncertain it’s important to know what you are expecting to happen financially, either to validate your expectations or react in the event of something unexpected. Our team work in collaboration with you to model what the future could look like and the critical variables that will determine success or a potential change of direction. Our support can be as simple as a sense check of assumptions to the design and building of a multi-entity model; we tailor our approach to support your needs.

FD Services

Not all companies require the services of a full-time Financial Director, although many businesses may have an internal bookkeeper, accountant or financial controller. Mazars’ experience shows that such companies still require a financial sounding board, together with strategic and business advice usually provided by a Financial Director. We believe such companies will benefit from Mazars FD on Demand service.
