Top trainee receives prestigious tax medal

Matthew Burgess, one of our tax trainees, has received the Kimmer Medal from the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) for scoring the highest mark in the country in the Inheritance Tax, Trusts & Estates exam paper.

Matthew has a history of success in exams, having previously won a distinction in his ATT Business Taxation and Accounting Principles papers – making him one of only 22 out of 1,263 individuals sitting the exam at the time to receive this level.

He joined our tax team in September 2014 having got a first class degree in Accounting and Finance from De Montfort University.

Matthew said: “I was absolutely shocked when I received the results. I was only hoping to pass so to achieve the highest mark was a complete surprise.”

This is a fantastic achievement with most of the other awards going to employees of the ‘Big Four’ firms, so we would like to congratulate Matthew on this excellent success and wish him the best of luck for his future papers as he works towards becoming ATT qualified.
