Matt Ellis is the new Head of Tax for Deloitte in the UK and Switzerland
Deloitte has announced that Matt Ellis is the new managing partner for tax in the UK and Switzerland. He assumes the role from Andy Hodge, who has led the practice for the past five years and is retiring from the firm.
Matt Ellis has held a variety of positions in Deloitte, including in regional offices in Southampton and Reading as well as London. Most recently he led Deloitte UK’s global employer services business (GES) and served as talent leader for tax.
David Sproul, Senior Partner and Chief Executive of Deloitte, said:
“I am delighted to announce Matt as our new managing partner for tax. Matt has been a great leader of our global employer services practice and I am sure that he will bring the same leadership and focus to his new role as head of our tax practice.
“I also want to thank Andy Hodge for the great leadership he provided as managing partner for tax over the past five years.”
Matt Ellis said:
“I am thrilled to be taking on this role and feel extremely privileged and humbled to lead such a tremendous business at this crucial time. The tax environment has changed rapidly over the past few years. Technology and data analytics are playing an ever greater part in taxation, as compliance is now digital and HMRC continues to develop new systems. The UK is also at the forefront of legislating the agreed actions from the G20/ OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting project and there are major changes for employers and individuals too.
“I look forward to working with our talented teams across the country as we help clients understand, navigate and comply with these complex changes and build and grow our practice.”
