TaxAssist Consolidates 22nd Position in AccountancyAge Top 50 Rankings

21st September 2018

TaxAssist Consolidates 22nd Position in AccountancyAge Top 50 Rankings

The TaxAssist Accountants franchise network saw a 6% increase in fee income up from £37.3m to £39.6m.

TaxAssist Accountants’ continual growth has seen the small business specialist remain at 22nd in the highly regarded industry league table.

Overall, the survey revealed the Top 50 firms collectively increased their fee income to £15.2bn, up on the £14.2bn generated in 2017, and the £13.1bn recorded in 2016, signalling positive growth for the accountancy industry, despite the uncertain climate.

Daren Moore FCCA, Group Commercial Director at TaxAssist Accountants, said:

"Holding steady just outside the UK’s Top 20 firms, following a good increase in fee income, is testament to the hard work of our franchisees, successful business model, growing brand name and the adoption of new technology, which has seen client numbers rise to more than 68,000. However, we will not be resting on our laurels.

The accounting industry is going through unprecedented changes at the moment – technology, software, automation, digitalisation and regulation are all impacting upon the way small practices work. We are also seeing client expectations slowly change as they start to see how they can use technology to help them understand more about their tax affairs and finances. The challenge our sector faces is to respond to this, using technology to help develop client services, improve efficiency and generate increased profitability and value.

We know from our experience in the market that many small practices are struggling with this.

However, our network is ideally positioned to take advantage of these changes – we see this very much as an opportunity, not a threat. We have invested heavily in our brand and in our technology suite and continue to develop services to help attract and support clients. This combined with our unique model of highly visible, client friendly practices across the country firmly positions us as the accountancy, tax and advisory provider of choice for small businesses and individuals in the UK.

Myself, my fellow Directors and the Support Centre Staff are focused on helping our franchisees and their staff through these changing times and to make the most of the opportunities they create."

Emma Smith, Managing Editor at Accountancy Age, said:

"UK accountancy firms have faced a multitude of challenges in the past 12 months, with the rise of technology, new regulation, and the search for talent representing only a handful of issues that have sparked uncertainty and disruption in the sector.

Yet the Accountancy Age Top 50+50 2018 has found that that the top UK accountancy firms have overcome these barriers to post record UK fee income in the last financial year, breaking the £15bn barrier."

What Our Franchisees Say

“I now have over 400 clients, which generate an income and flexibility in how I work that could not have been achieved on the corporate ladder I stepped off. Further, I know that the practice will be a valuable asset for my future when the time is right. The shops, my marketing, and the initiatives of the TaxAssist Team, have proved invaluable in helping me to build a substantial practice.”Alex Smith - Franchisee in Peverell & Plymouth


"I knew of the high reputation of the management team, the strength of the brand and business model, supported by many awards. I carried out a high level of initial research before committing to a Discovery Day. After meeting the team on that day I was convinced this was the right opportunity for me."Lloyd Evans - Franchisee in Kingswinford & Wolverhampton


"As I grew tired of corporate life, I started looking at options to start my own business. Owning a TaxAssist Accountants franchise appealed to me, as I valued the on-going support and readymade systems which would fast track my business. I didn’t want to be 'just an accountant'. It was great to realise that I was expected to run the business, employing accountants to do the operational side."Ali Redwood - Franchisee in Clifton & Portishead
