James Mason - Managing Director
James is responsible for all things related to client support, tax issues, client business reviews, solving client problems, client business development and dealing with HMRC when the need arises.
He is also responsible for developing the practice and keeping staff morale optimised, which he executes brilliantly through an excellent repertoire of comedic verbal exchange!
Four years' training with a firm of Chartered Accountants, five years in Private Banking, six years in International Retail, one year overseas, one year as a windsurfing instructor, followed by eight happy years (and many more to come) back in practice helping businesses locally, nationally and internationally.
Career highlights include reporting at board level for two UK blue chips in Financial and Management accounting roles. Both required international and UK taxation skills and knowledge necessary to ensure all business units, divisions and charges under his wing worked both operationally and profitably.
Coming from a retail and construction family with honed skills from private banking and international retail, James now focuses his skills where he says they matter most, “On the high street and in the local business community”.
