Our franchisees have worked both in practice and in industry, banking and financial services, corporate and consulting… and some have been former successful business owners too.  

We look for people who are capable of setting themselves up in business, but see the value in the brand, training, support and systems that investing in a franchise with TaxAssist Accountants brings. Having a financial background is essential – the focus is on advising and supporting clients while your tech and team do the number crunching.  

The most successful franchisees are commercially and financially astute, and confident leading a small team, and the majority of franchisees join us with a recognised accountancy qualification, typically, ICAEW, ACCA, CTA, AAT, ATT or CIMA and have a mix of industry and practice backgrounds. You do not necessarily need to have worked in practice recently and you don't have to be an accountant to join us. 

We are, however, very selective on who we award a franchise to. Franchisees who are not qualified accountants will come from senior management positions within the banking/financial services sectors and will need to show existing financial acumen. 

You will need to demonstrate high levels of: 

  • Commercial awareness
  • Business acumen
  • Energy
  • Motivation
  • Communication skills
  • Discipline to follow a proven business model

We have a number of case studies for you to view the range of people who have joined TaxAssist Accountants, which can be found here.

Like running your own business, running a franchise requires hard work and commitment. We provide the systems, the business model and the experience to run the business well, but the model also relies on you to make it work by introducing your own personality, energy and initiative.
