"I have operated my successful TaxAssist Accountants practice in Belfast for a number of years, and seeing the demand for similar services from businesses in Lisburn, I felt that the time was right to open a second shop,"said Andrew.
"Lisburn is a vibrant city with many independent businesses, and we feel that our second shop is perfectly positioned within the busy Longstone Street community. Our shop is not only warm and welcoming but is easily accessible to both city-based clients and those from around Lisburn.
"We look forward to becoming an integral part of the thriving Lisburn business community of start-ups, sole traders, limited companies and landlords and providing them with services including tax returns, annual accounts and payroll.
“Having been a franchisee for almost three years, I can see how the different aspects of the TaxAssist model work and can see how having a visible shop front definitely helps my practice grow.
“The franchise territory I operate in gives me considerable scope for expansion and the convenience of the shops, combined with the power of the TaxAssist brand and marketing budget, means my practice really stands out from the crowd.
“I’m always amazed that there are only two TaxAssist Accountants in Northern Ireland, (fellow franchisee Ian Aiken operates from Ballymena in County Antrim) as I’m constantly busy. I believe the province could support another half a dozen franchisees.
“I’d certainly encourage any accountants in Northern Ireland who are keen to start their own TaxAssist Accountants practice to contact me for a chat as I’d be happy to share the benefits of my experience.”
Andrew’s shop joins an established network of 228 TaxAssist Accountants UK shops.
