Office expansion helps future growth
We have recently completed the building works to our offices on South Hawksworth Street in Ilkley. As well as extending the size of the office, we have totally refurbished the property, creating new offices and a downstairs meeting room for clients and visitors.
The new-look offices were home to the recent free tax advice clinics we organised at the end of last year. These clinics saw many locals visiting the new offices to speak to one of our Partners about tax issues concerning their personal situation or their businesses. The clinics were so successful we will be organising more clinics for local residents and businesses later this year.
On top of this, we have expanded our team with the arrival of Mai Abdel-Fatah, who joins the firm as an Apprentice Assistant Accountant. In addition to her on the job training, Mai also attends Shipley College on a day release basis each week, as she combines working with studying for her Association of Accounting Technicians qualification. The appointment of Mai is part of our annual recruitment and training programme to attract the very best accountants of the future.
Daniel Wilkinson, Partner at Wilkinson's said, “The completion of the refurbishment works at our Ilkley office further demonstrates our commitment to supporting local people and businesses with their accounting and taxation needs.” He goes on to say, “Mai's appointment means we now have 5 members of the team based in the Ilkley office and our plans are to keep growing our teams in both our Ilkley and Bingley offices in the future. With the recent changes by HMRC to digitise the tax system, plus the effects on local businesses following Brexit, there are likely to be some exciting times ahead!”
