Five years into his franchise with TaxAssist Accountants in central Leicester, Tej Gawera discusses his decision to join the network.
“I was a management accountant for a food company back in 2011 and was tired of working for somebody else, and keen to establish my own business," explained Tej. "When I first read about TaxAssist Accountants I was intrigued. What attracted me was the business model - servicing small business clients from a shop, and the training, back-up and kudos of being part of a national brand”.
Tej opened his first shop on Uppingham Road in Leicester shortly after joining the franchise, and it has more than proven its worth. So much so, that he opened a second shop in Melton Road, Syston in Leicestershire in late 2017.
Tej runs his shops with the assistance of six members of staff. “I can’t emphasise enough the importance of establishing a good quality team of staff to assist you” said Tej, “it would have been impossible to get where I am today without the loyalty and hard work provided by my team.
“My first shop has proven to be a great draw and is now firmly established. I receive a good number of referrals, which reflects my emphasis on first class service provision. I have recently expanded into a second shop, and I am looking forward to expanding my practice here further."
Tej is full of praise for the Norwich-based Support Team: "They have been first class and have delivered everything that was promised. I’m happy with the level of training and support, both technical and marketing that I have received. I’m really looking forward to the future and expanding my business further.
“TaxAssist really hasn’t disappointed and I’d highly recommend it”.
