AIMS Accountancy Franchise
Accounting Business

Run your own Accounting Business with the support of a market leader!

The AIMS Accountancy Franchise has been established for over 23 years and has over 200 accountants nationwide. They are a market leader in taxation services and accountancy for SMEs and they continue to enjoy robust growth together with a successful track record.

The AIMS Accountancy Franchise Opportunity:

The most important part of the AIMS corporate culture is job satisfaction. As a franchise owner you will run your own Accounting Business. You must be fully qualified and hold a practising certificate or are eligible for one.

You already have the skills, the professional qualifications and a successful track record. In order to achieve optimum job satisfaction you now want to move away from corporate life and the red tape that surrounds it and take control of your career.

Ultimately AIMS want you to make the most of your skills and qualifications, achieve financial success and job satisfaction and with a good work/life balance determined by you.

The success of AIMS is down to their clear focus on their clients, they successful systems and their accountants.  AIMS accountants are personally responsible for each and every one of their clients thus ensuring a personable service and a quality service guaranteed.

The AIMS Ethos

AIMS have a very flat management structure and they pride ourselves on being informal but they still maintain a high standard of professionalism – they also expect this of their accountants.

The ethos is a very clear one with many factors that have contributed to their success:

  • They believe your efforts should be directly reflected in your rewards.
  • You will not be alone – you have their full backup and support and you can contact them whenever you need them.
  • Your clients have the security and backing of a national organisation delivered by a local presence.
  • They are not static and constantly review their systems and procedures to keep updated with the latest developments so you are on top of any new market trends.
  • They combine your accountancy expertise with their initial and ongoing training and support in accountancy, taxation, business systems, IT and Marketing, enabling you to develop a practice that is a profitable business and an asset with capital value that you could sell in the future.
  • They don’t believe in corporate walls or red tape and there are no stifling targets – they don’t impose financial targets, so you grow your Accounting Business to a level you want.
  • Their decentralized structure means that they can offer clients a cost-efficient pricing structure which is unique to AIMS, along with peace of mind – they know that they are dealing with a qualified accountant who puts the needs of their clients first.

Enjoy a rich variety of tax, accounting and business issues!

AIMS franchise owners focus exclusively on SMEs; businesses which are usually operated by their owners. They may be sole-traders or they may employ 100 staff; they may have a small turnover or they may enjoy an eight-figure turnover.

Aside from this they all have one thing in common. No one client is the same thus you will enjoy a rich variety of personalities and an equally rich variety of tax, accounting and business issues.
