Mazars achieves Platinum Xero status in drive to support SMEs PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 18 May 2017
International accountancy and advisory firm Mazars has announced it is now a Platinum Xero partner thanks to its continued focus on technology enabled client service...The firm has upgraded from Gold to Platinum status, since first partnering with Xero in 2013, a company leading the provision of cloud based accountancy software for the SME market.

The Platinum status reflects Mazars’ ongoing commitment to supporting the growing SME market which represented 5.5 million private sector businesses at the start of 2016

Xero has over one million subscribers and is recognised as one of the fastest growing ‘software as service’ providers globally. It is used by accounting firms to provide clients with an efficient way of managing accounts, providing 24 hour access to data from anywhere in the world and streamlining accountancy processes so that there is a single source of data as close to real time as possible.

Commenting on the upgrade to Platinum status, Margaret Laidlaw, Mazars Partner and Head of SME UK said: “Reaching this top level status with Xero is proof that more SME clients are asking our advice around the most modern methods to help manage their business more efficiently.

“Mazars is committed to continually innovating and this includes sourcing the latest technology to provide the most efficient services to our SME clients. Cloud technology has reshaped business and we are witnessing a rise in ‘global small business’ operating outside traditional boundaries.”

She continued: “Xero can provide our SME clients with potential cost-savings and a business ‘dashboard’ that provides a real-time view of how a business is performing, helping SMEs work faster, smarter and better.”

Gary Turner, managing director of Xero UK added: “Mazars is already well established as a Xero partner and we envisage even greater involvement with the firm as its partnership with Xero broadens to meet the growing demands of SMEs globally.”

With over 100 Xero accredited specialists in the UK (Xero “Champions”) Mazars is one of the most experienced accountancy firms in providing technology enabled solutions and is well placed to support the SME market now and into the future.
