Convert your existing accountancy practice over to TaxAssist Accountants 

You may be asking “Why should I join TaxAssist Accountants if I already have my own practice?”

We have recruited many accountants to the network who already had a block of clients/small practice of their own, but could see that by utilising the TaxAssist brand and systems they could grow their practice to the next level. Our Support Centre with over 70 staff, helps our network to achieve their ambitions, providing in-house additional services (Tax Consulting by TaxAssist, Payroll by TaxAssist and Financial Services) offering expert guidance, training, support, technology and innovative marketing and business development strategies.

The most common reasons for a sole practitioner to join TaxAssist Accountants are:

  • the desire to scale up and maximise growth potential
  • to benefit from technology, systems and business development support to diversify services
  • develop multiple income streams from TaxAssist Group branded services
  • to be part of a supportive network
  • to work on, not in the business, by developing a team.

Accountancy practices are valuable, saleable and in demand assets and those who have joined our network recognise the added value that TaxAssist Accountants brings.

How much does it cost?

Your overall business start-up costs will depend on your current situation and is subject to the territory location being available. Our conversion fee is the same as for a resale, at half a franchise fee £9,975+VAT.  

Subject to a minimum fee base of £50,000 being involved, we will allow the fees introduced or acquired to be kept in a separate pool and for one year there will be no Management Service Fee payable on these fees. After twelve months, these fees will be amalgamated with other fees acquired during the TaxAssist Accountants Franchise term to form one pool and full Management Service Fees will be payable on the total pool of fees.
