McBrides Chartered Accountants is expanding its tax services this month, taking on a new tax director who trained and qualified with the firm 17 years ago.
Masum Ahmed rejoins from Greenback Alan and is a Chartered Tax Adviser and Trust and Estate Practitioner who qualified whilst a member of the personal tax team at McBrides in 2001.
Masum gained valuable experience at Dixon Wilson and several other leading private client firms in London and has also led the team for clients’ tax returns and tax advisory services at one of the UK’s leading wealth management practices.
A committee member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP) City branch, Masum was shortlisted for the ‘Young Accountant of the Year’ in 2010 and the ‘Emerging Wealth Adviser of the Year’ in 2011. He has also co-authored chapters on ‘Working in the United Kingdom and Working Overseas’, which were published in Tolley’s Tax Planning.
Nick Paterno, managing partner at McBrides Chartered Accountants said: “Masum’s arrival marks the wider expansion of our tax team and he will be responsible, with manager Adam Hills, for providing high level personal income, inheritance and capital gains tax planning advice under our tax partner’s stewardship of the department.
“Masum has experience in providing UK tax compliance and planning advice to a variety of clients, including large professional partnerships and their partners, shareholders and directors of owner managed businesses, high net worth individuals and non-UK domiciled individuals. He is a perfect fit for the firm and our clients”.
“We’ve kept in touch with Masum since he qualified with us and we are delighted to have brought Masum back ‘home’ and look forward to further developing our tax advisory services with him as part of the team.”
