| Run your own Accountancy Practice
and build an asset for the future
|Are you tired of working for someone else and want to branch out on your own? Maybe you’re worried about going it alone and the risks associated with it. If so, then why not consider running your own accountancy practice with an award winning franchise which will give you brand credibility from day one, mixed with professional training and full support for you and your practice.
If you are a qualified accountant or hold tax qualifications then running your very own TaxAssist Accountants practice can offer you the challenge you have been looking for with the support you need. We also find that bank managers, finance managers and audit managers make great franchisees too and we have various routes for getting you where you need to be to run a successful accountancy practice. If you aren’t a qualified accountant then employing qualified accountants is essential whilst you concentrate on building the business.
The proven business model of TaxAssist Accountants is straightforward – take on hundreds of small business clients with relatively uncomplicated work whilst being based in visible, accessible and friendly shop front premises. And while you are building a valuable asset you will be obtaining an ongoing income. When you are ready to sell your practice, we can help you realise the value of your asset and you have the knowledge that you will be able to sell at industry multiple norms and beyond.
By adhering to the business model and taking a proactive approach to marketing in your territory, you can be attracting clients at a considerable rate. Client acquisition will be facilitated by our unique and innovative approach to marketing which will significantly help the build-up of your fee-bank. Alongside this we deliver nationally acquired leads which clearly separates us from other accountancy franchises.
TaxAssist Accountants are viewed as a ‘Funding Friendly’ franchise by all of the bfa accredited banks and attract interest in lending in order to get your venture up and running and supporting you in the early stages.
Background and the business model in action
Founded in 1995, TaxAssist Accountants has become the UK’s largest network of accountants specifically servicing the small business market.
Our network of almost 200 franchised practices services almost 50,000 clients with a combined fee bank in excess of £30 million putting us 24th in the Accountancy Age top 50 league of UK Accountants, the only accountancy franchise to be recognised in the league tables.
With the support of the Support Centre team in Norwich and by following our proven business model, our franchisees are able to grow their business substantially and far quicker and more sustainable than without us. Here's what a selection of our franchisees are currently achieving (as of October 2013):
|We have continued to see double digit growth in and out of the recession where the accountancy industry has often stagnated or declined. Make sure you are joining the right franchise during these tough economic times.

They are designed to help you learn more about your individual practice and for us to steer you in the right direction in the early days of starting your business. The Ongoing Support

Financial information – The franchise package
The package costs £36,950 + VAT and allows you to work from a commercial office and then move to a shop front by the end of your third year. Alternatively you can also open up a shop front from day one allowing your business to grow faster.
As the owner of a TaxAssist Accountants franchise you will enjoy the profits whilst building an asset for you to sell when you are ready to exit and with the TaxAssist Accountants brand name this is proving to add a premium to the value of the business when you decide to sell.
