TaxAssist Accountants Ends Year on a High with Six New Joiners

Six new franchisees joined the flourishing small business accountancy network on its last initial training course of the year, bringing the total number of franchisees recruited in 2018 to 19, including resales and partners.

Penny Taylor, who has more than 25 years’ experience in both the profession and commerce, with a wide range of experience across all sizes of businesses said:

"I have always derived most satisfaction from working with small businesses and I found myself drawn to the ethos of the TaxAssist vision, as well as the robust business model. I was attracted by the high level of technical support provided, coupled with marketing, branding and assistance with client acquisition."

CIMA qualified accountant Alex Chidlow has 18 years’ senior finance experience in SMEs and blue-chip organisations. He explained:

"Over the last few years I have been nurturing a plan to move on from corporate life and start a small accountancy firm whose purpose is to help and support local small businesses. I felt (and still do feel) this change would give me greater job satisfaction and more control over my time, allowing me to spend more time with my family. I am looking forward to this exciting new challenge."

Karl Sandall, Group Chief Executive Director, said:

"It has been a pleasure to welcome such a fantastic group of motivated and talented new franchisees to our 200+ strong network of franchisees. The Support Centre staff and I are looking forward to supporting them in their journey to building substantial practices.

We are holding four initial training courses in 2019 spread throughout the year, with two people already booked on our February course, so would urge anyone interested in finding out more about becoming a franchisee to get in touch."

What Our Franchisees Say

"I chose a franchise because I lacked practice experience and had no knowledge of sales or marketing myself or a business. I wanted the support that I would get from a network of accountants, a working model and best practice guidance. TaxAssist Accountants was by far the best franchise that I looked into. "Cheryl Hopkins - Franchisee in Tamworth & Nuneaton


"It had always been my dream to start my own business. I had tried many things to start a business and very soon realised that I couldn’t do it alone. I needed a team to help me along, with a well-proven and successful idea, a marketing plan and so on - the list was exhaustive and time was short. Then I came across TaxAssist Accountants – a solution for all of my concerns."Nadeem Iqbal - Franchisee in Palmers Green & Walthamstow


“I now have over 400 clients, which generate an income and flexibility in how I work that could not have been achieved on the corporate ladder I stepped off. Further, I know that the practice will be a valuable asset for my future when the time is right. The shops, my marketing, and the initiatives of the TaxAssist Team, have proved invaluable in helping me to build a substantial practice.”Alex Smith - Franchisee in Peverell & Plymouth
