Experts in accounting and tax planning for agricultural and rural businesses
It is now over 50 years since Niven Baird set up the dedicated Agricultural Department at Sheen Stickland Chartered Accountants, to be joined a few years later by Farm Accounts Manager, John Yeomans. Since then this area of the business has grown from strength to strength and today we represent many rural and agricultural businesses across the South of England.
In 2003 Niven retired from the firm and Partner Philip Sharpe took over to head up the agricultural team. In 2010 John Yeoman also retired after 42 years at Sheen Stickland and today the team comprises of Philip along with Partner Harriet Sergeant and supported by Sylvia Rowe and Cherry Dowsett.
