Changing consumer behaviours, a drive towards sustainability and demands for ethical commerce are transforming the luxury goods sector. Not only are companies focusing on new generations of consumers, but they are also seeing growth in emerging markets. Mazars can help your business thrive in this changing world with tailored solutions ranging from audit and assurance to outsourcing, risk management and sustainability.
The luxury sector is changing as it evolves towards a younger generation of consumers and nascent middle classes in emerging markets. Business models are changing, environmental awareness and sustainability are becoming a priority for consumers, and market players are focusing on operational efficiency as well as a better retail experience.
These changes mean that your distribution footprint is evolving with digital tools and technologies revolutionising the customer experience. You are placing a greater emphasis on growth opportunities in emerging markets and turning to younger consumers while also looking at how to best protect your brand.
At Mazars, we work with business across the entire luxury ecosystem. Whether you are providing luxury goods or experiences, our experts offer a wide range of audit, advisory, outsourcing and tax services to help you meet the challenges you face.
Protecting the value of your brand
We can estimate the value of your brand in the context of a financial transaction or to meet accounting requirements, and also the brand image loss in case of fraudulent use of your brand or following impact from Covid-19.
Aligning your organisation with new market opportunities
We can help you create new businesses or move into emerging and growth markets. We ensure the success of your acquisitions and partnership projects or the disposal of non-strategic assets by providing financial advisory, legal and tax support, taking local specificities and regulations into account.
