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.
