"I always believed that the back-up of the Support Centre would be both reassuring and an invaluable asset that most sole practitioners can never experience. Indeed, this has always been the case but never more so than now. They have been absolutely brilliant and I would be amazed if any other accountancy organisation has got anywhere close to delivering what they have." - Nick Sims, TaxAssist Devizes & Chippenham

Annual Conference

TaxAssist holds an annual conference inviting franchisees, staff, suppliers and support staff for a day of business, networking and entertainment


The beautiful setting of Centre Parcs in Woburn was the venue in May 2019 for three days of networking, workshops, best practice, entertainment and relaxation.

In the natural surroundings of Woburn Forest, the conference had an informal look and feel. More time was built in to enable franchisees and their staff and families to enjoy the facilities and rejuvenate in between a day of meeting TaxAssist partners at an exhibition on Friday, before a busy day of attending workshops and audio pods on Saturday, rounded off by a party in the evening.

Designed to inspire and energise franchisees, Saturday’s series of events were designed to cover a range of forward-thinking strategies and ideas to improve practices. Topics covered included winning business through technology, making the most of the software estate, Making Tax Digital, tax planning, cyber security and driving local marketing.

Saturday evening was a chance for attendees to enjoy themselves at an enchanted forest themed party, with entertainment provided by dance troupe ‘LED Dancers’ and internationally renowned ‘Urban Soul Orchestra’.

Group Operations Director Sarah Robertson was thrilled with the event: “While the location and format were new, there was still everything franchisees have come to expect from our flagship event and much more. It was fantastic to catch up with so many franchisees and share an enjoyable and informative weekend together.”

The set up and entertainment on Saturday evening was spectacular, so far the best most of us have seen! Friday afternoon and Saturday morning were informative, refreshing and we loved the relaxed atmosphere.

I just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ and ‘well done’ to the team for the amazing Conference weekend. Being our first Conference, Cameron [Allan] and I weren’t sure what to expect but the event really delivered. The highest compliment I can give is that we have already decided that regardless of the cost and logistics we will bring our whole team to the next one as we can now see the value it will add.

Thank you so much for all your hard work in the planning and execution of a great Conference. It was very brave of you to change venue and format, but it worked. We both thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, and found the workshops particularly useful, and well thought out.

Well done on delivering a fantastic ‘new style’ conference.... I particularly enjoyed the workshops which meant my team and I could get the information, education and updates relevant to us as individuals. I felt there was a positive vibe throughout the two days. I am sure you will have faced many challenges ‘behind the scenes’ but they didn’t show, and it came across as professional, slick and efficient! Thank you to everyone involved.

Terry Peachman - Franchisee

TaxAssist Accountants Loughborough and Long Eaton

Thanks so much for a most enjoyable conference this year. It never fails to amaze me, despite the network getting bigger and bigger each year, how much of a family feel there is being part of TaxAssist. I hope this is never lost as it is something that makes being part of the Network very special. This is not just my own opinion, but the same feeling my staff get from attending each year too (they’re already talking about what we’d do next year!)
