I manage the Rural Business and Landed Estates team.
Being from a farming background myself I have first-hand experience of the issues facing both farmers and landed estates. Understanding the farming process is a great advantage during an audit, as work can be tailored to the rural environment, and ensures feedback is relevant and constructive for the client as part of the process.
A large part of my role is to help farms and rural clients with their tax and accounting needs. In the ever changing taxation and farming environment, this can be a very diverse task.
I also manage a portfolio of corporate non-rural businesses. This has helped me gather valuable expertise to help clients with diversification and development projects, which are becoming an increasingly important income stream for farms and estates.
After a working in industry, I started at MHA Monahans in 2000, working in general practice and audit before joining the Rural and Landed Business specialist team. I became a partner in 2018.
I am a professional member of the CLA, NFU, and the ICAEW Farming and Rural Business Group.
I now also represent the South West on the MHA National Farming Group; a specialist sector within MHA of UK rural independent accountancy professionals.
Outside of work, I am actively involved in the financial management of my own family farm, so you might even spot me stacking bales and moving cattle on the lanes of Wiltshire at busy times of year!
