David Paulson QFP Elected to the Board of the British Franchise Association

Representing all members – franchisors, franchisees and the professional advisors, the bfa is the ethical voice of franchising in the UK, representing members and helping to promote them within the industry and beyond. They also provide information and advice to businesses planning to franchise, or people considering joining a franchise.

David said:

"The bfa does great work in promoting franchising as a means for self-employment, accrediting members and setting standards along with promoting education.  To be elected to the Board is a huge honour and I look forward to working with the Board and the great team at the bfa to help drive forward their strategic vision."

David, an experienced Qualified Franchise Professional, has been at TaxAssist Accountants since 2009, and is now in his 13th year working in the Franchise Industry, having previously worked at Franchise Development Services as a consultant.

David’s current role encompasses UK & International Development, with responsibilities for franchisee and master franchise recruitment, training, project managing and providing ongoing franchise mentor support.

David has recruited more than 90 franchisees in the UK (new, partnerships and franchise resales) including TaxAssist’s first £1million franchise resale. He has also recruited Master Franchisees for TaxAssist Accountants in Australia and Canada as well as supporting franchisee recruitment in Ireland and Australia.

David added:

"Working for TaxAssist Accountants has given me the experience, confidence and, crucially, the support to be able to take on this important role within the UK Franchise Industry – a real career highlight for me."

Karl Sandall, Chief Executive Director of the TaxAssist Group, said:

"We are absolutely delighted and very proud that David has been elected to the Board of the bfa. It not only shows the high regard the industry has for his dedication to franchising, but also how important it is for TaxAssist Accountants to have professionals of such high calibre to support our franchisees."

What Our Franchisees Say

“I spent 17 years running my own practice and treading water. That all changed the day I joined the TaxAssist franchise and the serious growth began. With the strength of the brand, my shop, the training and marketing I managed 68% growth in my second year and I am consistently aiming for double digit growth year on year. I’m thrilled!”Russel Charles - Franchisee in Barry & Cardiff


"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


"It had always been my dream to start my own business. I had tried many things to start a business and very soon realised that I couldn’t do it alone. I needed a team to help me along, with a well-proven and successful idea, a marketing plan and so on - the list was exhaustive and time was short. Then I came across TaxAssist Accountants – a solution for all of my concerns."Nadeem Iqbal - Franchisee in Palmers Green & Walthamstow
