History

On 1st January 2012, Ghana was selected for the partnership after meeting professional standards conducted through a quality control review process that Mazars requires. Ghana was overwhelmingly voted by the Mazars Group of Partners in France to start Mazars Ghana. Though Nigeria took the lead in welcoming Mazars in Anglophone West Africa, the Group considered Ghana as a very important step in the Africa region to expand into the non-Francophone states.
