International audit and tax and firm Mazars has moved to a new location in Edinburgh after 15 years at its previous office in the city centre.

All team members from its former Haymarket office have transferred to Capital Square, a major development which opened on March 20. The new office at 58 Morrison Street has been designed to better facilitate hybrid working.

The building in the heart of Edinburgh’s commercial centre is said to be among the top 10 per cent most sustainable commercial office buildings in the UK. In line with Mazar's sustainability commitments, there is a building-wide scheme capable of recycling 100% of waste.

“After 15 enjoyable years in our Haymarket office, during which time our Edinburgh team has grown significantly, it feels like the right time to move to a new location which will serve us and our clients long into the future," Edinburgh managing partner Laura Clarkson said.

“As we have all learned over the last few years, there is no single best way to work. In consultation with our people and our clients, we are embracing a hybrid working model which encourages our team to work in the way, and from the location, which best achieves our goal of producing an exceptional level of quality and service.”
