Prakaash Manivannan is a Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA) with extensive global finance experience spanning more than 25 years.
After relocating back home to the UK with his family, Prakaash felt the timing was right to step away from corporate life and international travel.
“After deciding to move back to Preston from Europe I saw my son reinvent himself as a bass guitarist and become part of a rock band at the age of 14. This brought increased involvement with the local community which made me realise that there was more to life than airports and meeting rooms.”
“I knew I wanted to start an accountancy practice but I was wary about starting out on my own. I discovered the TaxAssist franchise model in January 2018. This offered the best of both worlds - I could run my own business but also have the infrastructure and support that I was accustomed to within the multinational corporations where I worked.
“After going through a number of options regarding which territory to take, it dawned on me that there was no better place than the area which has been my family’s base for the last 18 years - Preston.
“I am looking forward to using my affection and knowledge of the city to become an integral part of the business community in Preston East, while building a successful practice following the tried and tested TaxAssist franchise model.”
