Accountancy and tax helpdesk
For many of our franchisees, one of the key reasons for joining TaxAssist Accountants is the extensive training, support and back up provided by the highly qualified and experienced technical support. We provide a helpline for franchisees and their staff to use, covering queries related to bookkeeping, accounts, tax, VAT, payroll, National Insurance contributions, tax investigation, software and mentoring support for franchisees in the early stages of launching their practice.
Online learning facility
Regulations mean that qualified accountants and students are expected to maintain continuing professional development (CPD) throughout their working life. It is also strongly encouraged for non-qualified accountants and may well become mandatory in the future. We can offer a complete solution to this, using innovative online learning aids and face-to-face courses.
Our Support Site hosts a range of materials that are relevant to your needs as a small business adviser. In addition, completing relevant learning activities on our site will contribute towards the CPD requirements of your professional body (ACCA, ICAEW, etc). We will add materials to this catalogue to reflect current and emerging training needs and to reflect your feedback and maintain a record of the learning that you have undertaken for a period of 3 years. We will continue to support your CPD requirements by offering a range of training and reference material, through a variety of industry leading partners and from our own in-house expertise.
To ensure our network are able to give a full business-to-business service we have found strategic partners with other businesses to provide TaxAssist Accountants with additional services. Examples of ‘Additional Service Providers’ include auditors, general and commercial insurance, asset and invoice financing, telecoms solutions, debt recovery services, business recovery and insolvency, employment advice and many others.
Visits and ‘Technical Update’ days
It is vital that our network receives technical updates and that we maintain high standards of accounting practice for clients. Our tax training days all ensure this happens effectively. By utilising the latest technical solutions, our visits and training can be seamlessly delivered virtually where required. On an ongoing basis we provide modestly priced courses at our Support Centre and regionally, to keep you and your staff up to date with technical developments.
