TaxAssist Accountants – a world of master franchise opportunities

TaxAssist Accountants – a world of master franchise opportunities

Do you have the desire to grow a substantial accounting network through franchising? TaxAssist Accountants is an award-winning franchise, which offers a first-class accountancy service to small businesses and self-employed individuals in the UK, Republic of Ireland and Australia. Established in the UK in 1995, our global network has grown to more than 230 franchised areas servicing over 70,000 clients, with a fee bank of more than £47 million. This has now put us 21st in the Accountancy Age Top 50 league of UK Accountants, the only accountancy franchise to be recognised in the league tables. Since 2009, we have been growing the brand internationally and we have exciting international franchise opportunities, which are primarily available in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. As part of our ambitious plans, we will soon be offering opportunities in the US.

Develop your own network

Master Franchisees bring local tax and accounting experience and TaxAssist provides the award-winning brand, systems, training and support to allow you to develop a network of 50-60 accounting firms within your territory, using our proven model.

Who we are looking for

At TaxAssist Accountants, we only award master franchise rights to individuals or organisations that meet our specific criteria:

We are looking for:

  • Qualified accountant or part of an established accounting firm
  • Solid financial foundation
  • Entrepreneurial mindset
  • Passion for the brand
  • Local business experience
  • Strong leadership skills

The franchise model

Our business model is a straightforward one: franchisees take on small business and personal income tax paying clients with relatively uncomplicated work, whilst being based in shop front premises. The shop fronts create a customer-friendly experience, stripping away the intimidation of traditional accounting practices and are specifically designed to appeal to the small business market. Franchising provides you with the benefits of proven training, systems and support provided by the franchisor. You will also enjoy the benefits of being part of a well-established network of accountants who have a community spirit of sharing and supporting one another.

Terry Murphy, master franchisee for two territories in Australia said, “TaxAssist Accountants offers a distinctive brand and clear approach to business development, as well as a great level of support to both our franchisees and their clients. We see it as a win-win situation for all concerned.”

Successful first year in Australia

We celebrated our first successful calendar year in Australia with a special open day in Sydney. The event was hosted by franchisee Colin Lua in his Sydney shop – the newest addition to the network – and generated much interest among the local business community, as well as those interested in becoming part of this latest chapter in the TaxAssist success story. Since the launch of TaxAssist Accountants’ Australian network in March 2016, Terry and his team have recruited three franchisees, including opening two shops and the conversion of Terry’s existing four offices to TaxAssist Accountants.

What our franchisees say

Liverpool-based franchisee, Avendra Narayan: “I could not be happier with the way my business is growing. Following TaxAssist Accountants’ shopfront business model has worked superbly as having a highly visible business encourages walk-in clients. The shop concept, combined with the high referral rate from clients who have been impressed by the level of service they have received, means that my business continues to grow.”

Chatswood-based franchisee, Panbo Ye said: “Since joining in July 2016, my business has gone from strength to strength. The TaxAssist brand name, training and support have been excellent and combined with my ambition and drive have proved to be a winning a combination. I am really enjoying every element of running my own business combined with offering a first-class service to my clients.”

Sydney-based franchisee, Colin Lua added: “Small businesses need a flexible, convenient all year-round tax and accounting package, which I’m delighted to be able to offer here in the Sydney CBD”.
