By following our proven and successful business model and taking a proactive approach to marketing you should be attracting and signing clients at a considerable rate. 

Utilising best practice guidance, which is delivered to TaxAssist Accountants through 'The TaxAssist Practice Engine', will create greater efficiencies in your practice leading to an increase in profitability and therefore sale value. More than one of our business owners has sold their business for over £1m, highlighting the potential rewards you could enjoy. 

Growing your practice and acquiring new clients will be facilitated by your highly-visible shopfront presence, supplemented with your local marketing and our national marketing activity. You also benefit from an increased range of financial planning and tax consulting services that your practice can now offer under the TaxAssist brand, building on the core tax and accountancy services for businesses. 

The shopfront provides your business with a professional appearance where clients will ‘walk-in’ and also gives you the opportunity to encourage referrals. The visibility of the shopfront - combined with your passion for your business, enthusiasm for providing high quality service and hard work to drive the business forward - will be the key to your success. 

Turnover & clients

After five years, depending on your own ambitions, you should be aiming for a turnover of at least £300,000 with 400+ clients. Some TaxAssist Accountants are happy to maintain this level, comfortable with both the income generated and being relatively light touch on the business, while others continue to work full-time and push past £500,000 turnover.  


Our training covers the staffing requirements for your business, and we expect a third of your turnover to cover staff costs, another third to cover the other costs associated with running your business and the final third being your profit. 

TaxAssist Accountants embracing efficiencies can increase profitability to 40%. 

Multiple income streams

The TaxAssist Group continues to evolve and expand its service offering to our network's clients. We currently provide Tax Consulting by TaxAssist and Payroll by TaxAssist which are highly valued by clients, and provide additional income streams for our franchisees. All of these services help to attract and retain clients and therefore increase the value of a practice.  

Financial Planning by TaxAssist represents a huge opportunity for TaxAssist Accountants, with an extended range of services, providing a competitive advantage over competing firms. This ensures clients are provided with a first-class service from their accountant but also have the opportunity to be offered services to provide for their futures, such as pensions, investments, wealth planning and income protection. The commissions are generous and incentives are put in place to encourage a build-up of trail assets under management over time to increase the value of each TaxAssist practice.

These complementary services have seen TaxAssist Accountants develop a better understanding of clients' needs and goals in order to provide suitable advice for their requirements.

Building an asset

As well as the profits that you should earn while you are a part of the network, you are continuing to build an asset for yourself with a strong sales value. The clients you engage belong to you and are yours to sell when the time is right for you to exit TaxAssist Accountants. Well-run accountancy practices are in demand and the TaxAssist Accountants brand is proven to add value – the current industry average for accountancy practices is 0.8-1.0 times gross recurring fees, while our practice owners are achieving multiples of up to 1.4 times gross recurring fees.
