MAZARS intends to build on the recent acquisition of eight partners from RSM Tenon's former Edinburgh office by doubling its business in Scotland, the firm's Scotland managing partner has said.

Peter Jibson, who leads the firm in Scotland, said Mazars aims to use its recent expansion as a platform for growing its revenue to £10m within two years.

In an interview with the Herald Scotland, Jibson said the firm plans to boost payroll numbers with 16 new hires joining in the New Year with further recruitment to follow.

"This is the start of something, not the end," Jibson told the Herald. "We're setting ourselves a target of £10m turnover within two years.

"We will then have a significant presence in Scotland and will be looking to continue that growth. We want to be a major player in Scotland."

In October, Mazars picked up eight partners from RSM Tenon's former Edinburgh office after acquiring a similar-sized group of partners from its rival only months before.
