Mike Shawyer

A brief introduction

I lead the MHA Monahans Rural Business and Landed Estates group. My clients include mixed estates, farms from all areas of agriculture, farm shops and other associated businesses.

I advise families and landed estates with complex needs and structures, to minimise tax, maximise profit and achieve those often competing objectives.


I joined MHA Monahans in 1974 as a trainee Chartered Accountant and have fulfilled many roles with the practice over a very long time! 

I specilise in VAT planning and advice. I help our clients navigate this extremely complex tax. The aim of the service is always to minimise the cost of VAT for our business clients.

Client testimonial

Dealing with day to day business is hard enough, but a HMRC investigation too? We simply don’t have the time, energy and expertise to handle that. I believe my accountant is certainly the best person to manage a tax investigation and it’s reassuring to know the costs will be covered.
