Matthew Hackett FCA AAT BSc

Matthew Hackett FCA AAT BSc

I joined Coates & Partners Ltd in January 2007, and have since worked my way up to becoming a Director in April 2018.

Having graduated from Loughborough University in 2001, with a Maths, Accountancy & Financial Management degree, I began my Accountancy training with Sibbalds Chartered Accountants in Derby, passing my AAT in 2004 and qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in December 2006.

I have a number of clients, and am particularly interested in limited companies and small businesses, of varying sizes across different trades. Whilst ensuring that the compliance deadlines are met, I like to provide pro-active tax planning advice and support to assist clients. I am Coates & Partners Ltd resident Xero Champion and am interested in assisting clients with their accounting systems, and in particular those digitalised cloud based systems, such as Xero.


My family – especially Donna, Evangeline and Trevor (the cocker spaniel), travelling, football (sadly arthritis has put paid to my career!), golf (handicap of 10), British Military Fitness, The Killers, my abacus and sunshine!


Slow computers, snakes, getting old!
