The retail sector is experiencing a series of tectonic shifts. Changing consumer behaviours, emerging technologies and a globalised marketplace have all brought about major disruption while also improving shopping experience and endorsing multichannel retail. We have access to valuable local knowledge as we work both with large groups as well as with small, local retailers. Our experts are thus well-equipped to advise and guide you through a complex market with actionable insights and practical business solutions.
In the retail sector, several factors are driving a major upheaval, including the rise of e-commerce, sustainability, internationalism and new business models. Navigating the changes in the sector can be challenging for those that attempt it in isolation. To achieve success, companies must develop and implement effective strategies, manage change, adopt new technologies and focus on the right markets.
At Mazars, our team of dedicated retail professionals has leading experience in the sector and offer a complete range of services to meet your needs. Our international footprint not only gives us the advantage of a broader perspective of the industry, but also allows us to bring together sector specialists from across our firm to leverage their technical expertise.
We will work with you to understand the challenges you face and help you identify the right solutions for your long-term strategy. Our audit, advisory and tax experts can help you to:
