Senior Manager, Tax Services
KPMG in the UK
Matt has a background in UK corporate and international tax, and is responsible for managing the delivery of tax advice to financial services clients. Matt has considerable experience advising clients on a wide variety of tax matters including, for example, banking specific legislation, international restructuring, capital market transactions, transfer pricing and anti-avoidance legislation. He is the corporate tax specialist on a number of significant Brexit-driven restructuring projects. These projects are typically involving the identification of the optimal jurisdiction for a new EU regulated entity, analysing different legal mechanisms for transition, and assessing the impact of new operating models and structures. Matt has worked closely with legal and regulatory colleagues, and tax colleagues from a number of different jurisdictions, in order to assess different restructuring options from a tax and wider commercial perspective. Some of his other recent projects include advising on the intra-group transfer of a credit card business from the UK branch of a French entity to a UK subsidiary, advising on the tax impact of the migration of a Societas Europaea from the UK to Ireland, and advising on the application of the Substantial Shareholding Exemption to the disposal of a UK sub-group. Matt has also spent time on secondment to KPMG’s transfer pricing team where he gained particular experience in relation to thin capitalisation, the attribution of profits to permanent establishments and the agreement of Advance Pricing Agreements. Matt is a key UK tax contact for a range of UK and international financial services clients.
