Our Team Biographies
SENIOR TAXATION OFFICER
What does Matt do?
Matt has a very broad and challenging role as Senior Taxation Officer. His work incorporates a range of important, tax related duties such as the complete array of self assessment tax returns, Corporation and VAT returns to HMRC, VAT registrations, some payroll related work and liaising with HMRC on behalf of clients, which he loves ...... NART!
What do you enjoy about your work?
There’s no better feeling than solving a problematic case on behalf of a client resulting in them being in a better position and with more of an understanding of their own tax situation. I suppose you could call it the light bulb moment, the point at which they see the big picture and relax.
The other big plus is the team. As most of my colleagues know I like to help where I am able to and that tends to be the way we all work.
What do you enjoy about life?
I am a real family person and would stand by the phrase ‘family first’. I am blessed with quite a large family, so doing things together like Christmas or a good old summer BBQ are always a good time ..... of course with one or two beers
I also own a caravan on a sunny camp site just off ‘Skeg Vegas’ so inevitably I like to just take off whenever possible and go there to get away from it all and relax.
Do you have a pet hate or things people do that irritates you?
A real pet hate of mine is the toilet seat being left up……. It just makes the bathroom look untidy and un finished but yet it’s such a simple thing to do. Best training on this was Cameron Diaz in the film ‘What Happens in Vegas’...... “It lifts up and then it goes down”, one more time “it goes up and then it goes down.”
Persistent people such as sales calls that continue to call you 8 times a day even though you have politely told them you’re not interested. And ... as I’ve said ... being put on hold for what feels like forever by HMRC!
