Terry O’Donovan an ACCA qualified Accountant with over 15 years experience has recently joined the TaxAssist Accountants network having completed his initial training. Terry will set up in Cork North central servicing Blackpool, Blarney, Little Island, Glanmire and surrounding areas.
Speaking about opening his own business Terry said ‘ I had always worked in fund accounting and as I progressed through my career I kept coming back to the idea that I would like to run my own business one day and be answerable to myself. I didn’t want to wait any longer as the time was right for me and my family so I took the plunge.
Adapting to Covid times, Terry’s training was fully virtual with all sessions run over Zoom and Microsoft teams over a period of 6 weeks. Speaking about this Terry said ‘ I had gotten so used to software and doing things digitally so having the training online worked well for me. We were able to take plenty of breaks which allowed me to come back with better questions as I had time to check back over the content’.
Alison McGinley, Managing Director of TaxAssist Ireland said: “I would like to extend a warm welcome to Terry who I know, is very excited to be launching his practice.
“Our accountants around Ireland have been very busy, and client demand continues to increase significantly, as business owners look for local, accessible accountants that can provide them with the advice and support they need to help decision making during the pandemic.
We still have areas left in the country and will be running our next training course at end of this year so I would encourage anyone interested in the franchise to get in touch.
While the initial training course is running virtually, TaxAssist Accountants is pleased to offer a reduction in the franchisee fee of €4,000.
