TaxAssist Accountants the UK’s leading Tax and Accountancy service for small businesses is pleased to announce the opening of their first shop front premises in Northern Ireland!
TaxAssist Accountants provides small businesses with expert advice tailored specifically for their needs, from the completion of end of year accounts and tax returns to payroll, VAT and bookkeeping. This is complemented by a wide range of additional services for small business clients, including debt recovery, independent financial advice and personnel (HR) services.
TaxAssist Accountants developed the shop front concept with the aim of attracting the local small and medium sized business owner with a fresh, modern and stylish look. Not only do the shop fronts lend visibility and accessibility they also offer the credibility with clients and other businesses that working from home simply could not provide.
Jim Andrew is the franchisee who has become the Northern Irish pathfinder for TaxAssist Accountants, opening his shop in Belfast this month. Jim joined TaxAssist Accountants in February 2008 and reports “Since the launch I have had a steady stream of work, despite the economic downturn. As the credit crunch bites, self employed people and small businesses turn to accountancy firms for business advice and for ways to save money on their taxes. In my opinion now is the ideal time to launch an accountancy franchise and capitalise on the situation.”
Having attended the franchise’s initial 5 week training course and refresher days Jim comments “The training course really boosted my confidence and I left feeling I would be able to run my own business effectively. The support I have received has been first rate.”
Karl Sandall, Chief Executive of TaxAssist Accountants comments “It is very clear to us that moving into shop front premises will continue to be the way forward for all franchisees. We have always had complete confidence in this. Professionalism and business stature within the community are immediately elevated with the increased profile of a shop front office, - which in turn improves local business relationships and increases referrals of new business. We are very pleased to be welcoming Jim to the TaxAssist Accountants network and expect our presence here to grow considerably.
Jim is currently the only franchisee in Northern Ireland, however he will be joined by a new franchisee in the new year and numbers of enquiries remain high. We are also actively looking to expand into Southern Ireland via selling a Master Franchise Licence so if you’re interested please do get in touch.”
Franchisees do not need any formal accountancy qualifications as full training is given, but you do need to have a relevant career background, be self motivated, disciplined, ambitious, hardworking and keen to build a substantial successful business.
