About MJC Partners

MJC Partners originated in 1980 as a two partner practice with one employee and has blossomed into one of the largest accounting practices in the South Eastern Suburbs.

Now comprising 5 partners and over 20 accountants, the firm has been recognised by BRW and AFR as one of the top 100 Australian Accounting firms several times.

Recognising the complexity of Tax Law, the firm employs Specialist Accountants in many areas to ensure you always receive current and complete advice on your tax affairs.

We are proud of our base in Dandenong and share the excitement of those that live and work in the area, but we are not constrained by its boundaries. The majority of our clients reside in Victoria, but we also have clients from every Australian state as well as international clients.

Knowing how busy you are, if possible we can come to you and fit in with your timetable.

We have an extensive referral network and can recommend financial advice services, bookkeeping services, or legal services if required.

CHRIS SIMMONS
CHRIS SIMMONS

Partner & CEO

Recognised as a thought leader in the areas of business development, corporate governance and growth strategy, Chris has developed a reputation for reshaping and rejuvenating businesses. As a business coach to medium and large businesses, and as a current board member for numerous private businesses, Chris is passionate about recognising and realising the growth opportunities available to businesses in a responsible and sustainable manner.

As CEO of a Top 100 Accounting Firm, Chris understands the passion and vision that is required to not only maintain, but to also build (and continue to grow) a successful business.

With such a keen passion for coaching and team building, it’s perhaps no wonder that Chris has combined the two with his other two biggest passions of family and football (soccer) through a long involvement as coach, treasurer and parent at his local community soccer club.
