British Franchise Association The role of a TaxAssist franchisee is fundamentally business development, which is why we consider commercially experienced individuals as well as qualified accountants to become franchisees. In order to work on the business rather than in it, franchisees must be able to build a team of staff to assist with work production. As the principle of the business, franchisees will spend their time networking, managing staff and meeting with clients.

TaxAssist Accountants is a Full member of the British Franchise Association.

How much does a TaxAssist Accountants franchise cost?

The franchise fee is £36,950 + VAT*. You will need up to £60,000** if you wish to operate from an office initially and up to £120,000 to operate from a shop.

All franchisees are required to move to a shop by the end of their third year. Operating from a shop from day one will allow a franchisee to grow their business quicker.

TaxAssist Accountancy Franchise Business Franchising Lucrative Profitable Money Support Training Award Winning Accountant Management Career bfa member“Owning a franchise in a successful network with a good franchisor gives you great support. If I had decided to just be my own boss I would have needed to buy things like technical support, systems, training as well as marketing support – so why not have them all under one roof as part of a franchise. The key thing is that being part of a successful franchise has meant that my business has grown much, much quicker than it would have done otherwise. If you ask me if I’d do it again, I’d say in a heartbeat! I wish I could have done it sooner!”.

Earning Potential

Business development will depend on your own ambition, but franchisees should aim to build up turnover and profits consistently, aiming after 5 years, for a turnover of £300,000 plus.

After 5 years some franchisees are happy to maintain this level, comfortable with the income generated from the business, whilst other franchisees continue to drive their business forward, by continuing to be proactive with networking and marketing strategies, pushing past the £500,000 turnover level. This level of success can be achieved and in some cases is exceeded.
