“I have a passion for working with businesses to achieve their goals, whether that be accessing R&D initiatives, grants or loans.”

Matt Cliff

Manager, R&D Services

Matthew understands the value of innovation and the importance it plays in the growth of the businesses he assists.

An expert in helping companies leverage funding through the Australian Government’s R&D Tax Incentive, he knows what is required to fully satisfy regulators of any claims that are made.

His experience in charting successful R&D incentive strategies comes from lessons learned during a diverse career.

Matthew joined William Buck in July 2019 after working as an R&D Manager at a mid-tier accounting firm. He has also operated his own consulting business focussing on the R&D tax incentives and previously worked as a manager for AusIndustry.

These experiences have equipped him with the expertise to ensure clients receive maximum benefit from the R&D Tax Incentives, allowing them to develop their businesses to complete in an increasing complex market place.

Matthew holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Politics and Asian Studies, a Graduate Certificate in Accounting and a Master of Business Administration.
