Expansion to meet 'high local demand' for tax services
TaxAssist has opened its fourth Lothians office in Musselburgh.
The firm, part of the largest independent network of accountants in the UK, said it was opening due to high local demand for small business tax services.
Director Alasdair MacLean said much of that local demand relates to looming tax return deadlines.
TaxAssist said it will also also offer full accountancy services aimed at small business owners from its new Lothians base.
MacLean said he plans to open a fifth Lothians office next year, though a location has yet to be decided.
He said: I am continually impressed by the entrepreneurship and determination of people throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians in the face of challenging times.
Having pulled out the stops to open by October in advance of the next tax deadline, we hope to help more self-employed people to get the support they need so they can concentrate on achieving success for their businesses.
