Jonathan Hayes

Director of Rural Services

Based in Exeter

T 01392 211233

Jonathan recently joined Simpkins Edwards from a regional firm, where he specialised for more than 20 years in tax and accounting for farms and rural property businesses. In that role, he built up considerable exposure to capital, as well as income, taxes.

Jonathan graduated from Exeter University in 1988 with a First Class degree in Accountancy. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland and a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

Jonathan grew up in a farming family and had 30 odd years of personal farming experience (both in Devon and elsewhere), bringing a good understanding of the day to day issues facing farmers and small businesses generally.

And another thing…

Instilled by his farming background, Jonathan is immensely practical outside work. He must be one of few Exeter-based accountants whose DIY tools include a welder, 4” and 9” grinders and a cement mixer.
