Qualified Accountants – Experience and Knowledge that matters

Simon Mason is our Director and Principal. He qualified in 2003 as a Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

Simon Mason

He trained and worked in a large regional firm of Chartered Accountants, based in Norfolk. At the time, they were a top 30 firm of accountants at the time.

On qualifying, Simon moved to another firm of accountants, with five offices based in and around Cambridgeshire.  This gave Simon his post qualification experience and training which made him the general practioner that he is today.  Whilst Simon has the skills and experience to deal with a variety of aspects within accounting and tax, his leaning is towards the small owner managed businesses.

His experience included the preparation and audit of company statutory accounts, the preparation of partnership and sole trade accounts, together with personal tax return preparation and tax advice.  He also prepared management accounts for a number of businesses, providing insightful and timely information and advice to the owners.

Simon then gained further experience in “one office” practices. At this time, he gained wide range of experience of how accountancy firms are run.

In 2017, Simon decided to form his own practice, Simas Accounting & Tax, taking the best parts from the firms he had worked with previously.  His drive and focus is on meeting and exceeding the client’s expectations, providing them with peace of mind and timely advice.
