Having achieved the highest level industry qualification in February 2023, Matt is now a fully qualified Chartered Accountant with many years experience working with a wide variety of clients. Having joined Harland as an apprentice in 2015 after finishing college, he is very much a home-grown talent.
Conscientious with a down-to-earth approach, Matt is our go-to person for Limited Company end-of-year accounts, and our in-house Compliance Champion. His future-focussed outlook gives clients peace-of-mind to plan and make informed financial decisions.
“I encourage clients to look ahead, plan and to stay on-top of costs that may be unexpectedly increasing due to the current climate. Management accounts are a great way to do this as they reveal financial insights on a regular basis, not just at the end of the year when it might be too late to change course.”
