An innovative business model
We have developed an innovative business model that allows our franchisees to focus on a lucrative market of potential clients.
The proven business model of TaxAssist Accountants is straightforward – take on hundreds of individual taxpayer and small business clients, with relatively uncomplicated accounting, tax and advisory work, while being based in visible, accessible and welcoming shopfront premises.
By servicing the needs of small businesses, subcontractors and the self-employed, as a franchisee you can focus on a group of clients who have traditionally been under-serviced.
Concentrating on the needs of small business clients can offer time-management advantages and through our training and with judicious use of our support functions, you can also provide a first-class service to your client base. These new service lines offer an enormous opportunity for future growth of the TaxAssist brand with recurring income streams, which also include advisory services and tax consultancy services.
Build a sizeable, scalable and profitable practice
Our aim is to strengthen our network with franchisees that follow our business development strategies in order to build a sizeable, scalable and profitable accountancy practice.
These strategies are based on best practice and powerful marketing techniques that can accelerate the growth of each franchisee's business. Initially, you are likely to spend at least half your time on business development activities. As your practice matures and grows, you will spend more of your time attracting new clients, managing customer relationships and leading a team of staff members.
The goal is to work on the business rather than in it, and with many years of experience in Ireland (since 2009) behind us, we have actively evolved our support infrastructure to enable franchisees to build their businesses in a commercially, modern and dynamic way.
Grow a valuable asset
While you are taking an ongoing income from your business, you are simultaneously building a valuable asset. 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.
TaxAssist is known for changing the landscape of the accountancy industry through retailing tax and accounting services, which has become the cornerstone of our success.
Visibility, credibility, walk-in business and brand reinforcement are just a few of the benefits that operating from shopfront premises brings to our accountancy network. Not only is this a place of work for our tax and accounting experts to run their franchise from, but it is also a permanent advert that performs day and night, right throughout the year, that has supported our growth and served us well.
Our dedicated support team will help you through every stage of setting up your shopfront location in the most efficient and convenient way possible. We'll walk you through everything from finding the right premises, negotiating your lease and planning permission through to refurbishment, staffing advice and holding your launch event.
