Mazars in Manchester
Our Manchester office
As the birthplace of the industrial revolution, Manchester now has the largest economy in the UK, outside of London, with a wealth of talent exceeding 7.2 million. Voted the most liveable city in the UK, Manchester has a rich variety of people, history, and culture.
Our office is located at the landmark location of One St Peter’s Square, close to Manchester Oxford Road and Manchester Piccadilly railway stations. We’re also just a short walk from the city’s exciting Northern Quarter, as well as the Central Retail District.
One of the city’s best-known symbols is the Manchester worker bee, denoting the Mancunian work ethic and the city being a hive of activity. It’s been Manchester’s emblem for over 150 years and has come to represent our great city’s sense of unity.
As a business, we seek to embody the same spirit. We understand that the needs of our clients are unique, and we strive to always offer an excellent and personal service.
