Bukky Shonola has opened a new walk-in tax and accountancy shop on 53-55 Station Road in Letchworth.
Bukky is a qualified AAT technician with eight years’ experience working in various roles in accountancy. She runs the practice with the assistance of her husband Dapo, a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), who has more than 20 years’ experience in accounting.
She bought the Letchworth TaxAssist Accountants from retiring franchisees in April 2018 and is excited to have opened the shop, which offers the perfect location to meet with the 250 existing clients of the practice, along with potential new clients who can pop in for a free consultation.
Bukky explains what attracted her to become part of the TaxAssist Accountants network: “Having worked for other people throughout our working lives, we thought it was time to pursue our dream of owning a business. Both being accountants, we thought buying a TaxAssist would be a good fit and the discovery day convinced us that this is the right opportunity for us.
“We are very excited for the future and for the opportunity to work as a family to grow the practice into something much bigger, including having multiple shops.
“The TaxAssist Operational Support Centre Team has been excellent and we really couldn’t have done this without them. At every stage of the process, they have been there for us.”
