“When people say ‘Actually you’ve made an impact, you’ve made a difference to my life’…that’s fulfilling. That encourages you to go back the next day and do more, push yourself… I’m extremely proud of my network, I’m proud of who we are…a network that genuinely cares for its clients.” – Bukky Shonola, TaxAssist Hitchin & Letchworth

Build your own practice or buy an existing business

Whether you have a business or financial background, or are currently an accountant already, we have options nationwide to purchase new territories (franchise fee: £39,950+VAT) and existing practices for sale (franchise fee £19,975+VAT).

The total investment figure will be dependent on location, working capital and level of personal drawings required, and we will work closely with you throughout the business planning process to establish the right level of investment for you.

When buying an existing practice for sale, the price and terms will be negotiated with the Franchisee selling, but typically a percentage of the total price agreed is payable on completion with deferred consideration payable at agreed intervals thereafter.

The major banks fully support the TaxAssist Accountants franchise and will typically lend up to 70% of the total investment required.

We are with you throughout your journey offering comprehensive training and full technical, marketing and business development support for you and your practice.

When you are ready to sell your practice, we can help you realise the value of your asset, on many occasions achieving prices in excess of the industry norms. Examples of actual business sale prices:

  • £460k fee bank, 1.3 x multiplier
  • £182k fee bank, 1.23 x multiplier
  • £190k fee bank, 1.3 x multiplier
  • £254k fee bank, 1.1 x multiplier
  • £340k fee bank, 1.4 x multiplier

Lloyd Evans

“I think what each individual gets out of their own TaxAssist practice is very personal to them… From businesses selling food, through to footballers, if our reason for operating is to help people, the rest will follow – no matter what you define as the rest.”

Kully Sahota

“We help contractors, delivery drivers, manufacturing, retail shops, chip shops, small traders, labourers… We’re a small business and so are they. It’s a nice feeling when you know you’ve done a good job and you’ve helped them.”

Bukky Shonola

“When people say ‘Actually you’ve made an impact, you’ve made a difference to my life’… that’s fulfilling. That encourages you to go back the next day and do more, push yourself, because you know what you’re doing is making a difference.”
