Our experience - Your success

Simon Harrison

Simon Harrison FCA - Director

Simon is the practice founding director. He set up the practice in 2003 when he merged the existing client base he had from a local accountancy practice, with a long established practice he purchased in Malton.

After qualifying in 1990, Simon worked in industry as a Financial Controller to gain a front end and inside experience of how businesses operate. A few years later, Simon joined a practice where he was able to assist his clients in a more practical and understanding way as a result of his time in industry. Nowadays, Simon leads on the vision of the practice and actively assists his clients with all aspects of their financial needs, from business turn around to ideas on reducing tax liabilities.

When not working Simon enjoys a game of golf, fishing and spending time with his family.
