Mazars in Botswana was founded by the late Mr Raju Parameswaran in 1982, when he bought a fledgling proprietary accounting practice in Lobatse, south of the capital city Gaborone. It was originally named Acme Services (Pty) Limited.
In 1995 Acme Services (Pty) Ltd spread its roots internationally and with that, it changed its name to Moores Rowland. In 1999 the firm opened its Gaborone office. By 2001 the client base in Selebi Phikwe and Ghanzi had grown so extensively that offices were opened in both of these towns. In 2006 the head office was shifted to Gaborone and two more branches were opened in Palapye and Maun. Following the amendments to the Companies Act in 2007 and the huge demand in audits due to these amendments, the Audit Department was opened as a separate division in 2008.
In September 2008 the firm joined Mazars. Mazars Botswana offers a broad range of services and has a large number of clients ranging from OMBs to parastatals. Currently, they have 115 staff members divided between six offices.
Botswana, formerly a British protectorate of Bechuanaland, is a landlocked country in Southern Africa bordered by Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Botswana has had a stable political system ever since it gained its independence on 30 September 1966. Today it is considered one of the most rapidly developing market economies in Africa and as a result Botswana has maintained one of the world’s highest economic growth rates since its independence.
The country’s economy is dominated by the diamond, tourism and beef industries as well as its ever growing service sector. The current population is just under two million people. The monetary unit of Botswana is the Pula and the capital city is Gaborone.
