Shelia, partner in our Manchester office tax department, graduated in 1989 with a joint honours in history and religion. Following a stint with a merchant bank in London, she joined the Inland Revenue in Woodford Green, Essex and qualified as an Inspector of Taxes in 1992.

Shelia worked for the Inland Revenue until 1996 when she returned to Manchester and worked in practice for three years before joining our Manchester office in September 1999.

Sheila’s experience and breadth of knowledge gained over the last 20 years means she is especially well placed to deal with all aspects of HMRC’s enquiries, of which she has significant experience both from her Inspector days and also from experience of more recent specialised enquiries including COP9 and Personal Liability Notices. She also has a particular interest in both personal and corporate international tax issues.
