Huddersfield and Barnsley-based TaxAssist Accountants is celebrating ten years working with the local small business community and appointing a new member of staff after seeing client numbers soar.
Nick Brook set up TaxAssist Accountants on Lockwood Road, Huddersfield in 2006 and in response to growing demand from existing and new small businesses in Barnsley, decided the time was right to expand and open a second office in Barnsley’s Business and Innovation Centre last year.
Now with over 450 small business clients across the region, the team has been boosted with the appointment of apprentice, Kirsty Eastwood, who will learn on the job while studying to gain her AAT level 4 Accounting Technician qualifications.
Nick said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating our 10th anniversary here in Huddersfield and a successful first eight months in Barnsley. Since opening in 2006, we have seen the business go from strength-to-strength as the small business community continues to look for jargon-free tax and accountancy advice.
“At a time when demand for our specialist small business services continues to grow, we’re delighted to have Kirsty join our team, who is already proving to be great addition to the team. This is evident through the brilliant feedback we have received from our clients and we are confident she will develop more and more in her new role.
“Too often young people leave university or college with no real experience of working life, whereas apprenticeships allow them to train in their chosen career and also gain valuable work experience.”
Open five days a week, TaxAssist Accountants in Huddersfield and Barnsley is itself a local business, specialising in providing accountancy services, tax returns, payroll, bookkeeping, tax savings and tax advice to local small businesses.
