Central & South America

The Central and South American economic area plays an important role in the global economy: companies from all over the world, including Germany, have invested here and are generating long-term profits.

Mazars has a number of offices across the region, including in Argentina, Brazil, the Cayman Islands, Chile, Colombia, the Dutch Caribbean, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. All of these offices work closely with our Central & South America Services, which are coordinated from Germany.

When it comes to ensuring commercial success abroad, the importance of professional, reliable guidance in legal, tax- and audit-related queries and projects is not to be underestimated. Whether at home, abroad, and not least at the interface between countries.

The Mazars Central & South America Services team, led by Lutz Beck (Mazars Hamburg), comprises lawyers, tax and corporate consultants and auditors from Germany and abroad. The services are designed to meet the specific needs of German companies doing business in Central and South America and vice versa.

They predominately cover advice on all aspects of importing and exporting, founding offices and company acquisitions abroad. However, Mazars also offers a portfolio of basic recurring services for everything from payroll and financial accounting to annual financial statements, tax returns and company audits.
