A KEIGHLEY accountancy firm is expanding.

TaxAssist Accountants has opened a new office in Bingley.

Dave Forrester founded the firm in Keighley ten years ago and launched a second branch, at Ilkley, in 2011.

Soaring demand – the company now has a client base of more than 400 small businesses – prompted the expansion into Bingley.

The Main Street premises were officially opened by the deputy Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Alun Griffiths.

Mr Forrester said: “With the firm going from strength to strength in Keighley and Ilkley and a growing small-business culture in and around Bingley, it seemed like the perfect time to lookout for a new conveniently-placed office in the town.”
