    We’re an interesting bunch at Chapman Worth.

    No, really! We love what we do.

A ‘grey’ accountancy firm? Not a chance!

Quite simply, our success is down to our people. And even though accountancy is our 9-5, we’re all quite normal, with lives outside of work.

Come and take a look and match some faces and personalities to names…


Matthew Chapman FCA

Matthew is one of the founder partners of Chapman Worth. He qualified with a large, international firm before forming Chapman Worth with Anna in 2003. Outside of work, Matthew enjoys travelling, eating out and days at the (horse) races. For a number of years now, he’s also held a season ticket at Oxford United in the continuing hope that they’ll once again have cause to celebrate!
