"I always believed that the back-up of the Support Centre would be both reassuring and an invaluable asset that most sole practitioners can never experience. Indeed, this has always been the case but never more so than now. They have been absolutely brilliant and I would be amazed if any other accountancy organisation has got anywhere close to delivering what they have." - Nick Sims, TaxAssist Devizes & Chippenham


Accounting Master Franchise Opportunity in Canada

The master franchise opportunity

Canada has one of the largest franchise industries in the world. According to the Canadian Franchise Association's 2018 Accomplishments Report, as of 2017:​

  • The Canadian franchise sector generated $96billion, almost 5% of the Canadian economy
  • 75,245 franchised units
  • $61.2billion on household wages
  • 1.85million people employed by the franchise sector
  • The business services and real estate sectors generated over $18billion
  • Canadian franchising generates 6.4% of federal taxes collected and the collective Canadian franchise industry ranks 12th among the largest industry sectors in Canada

There are currently no businesses in Canada which are offering a unique-packaged accounts and tax service for small businesses, which is why we believe Canada represents a significant growth opportunity for TaxAssist Accountants.

If you are an ambitious individual or company with an accounting, franchising, corporate or financial background, we are offering totally comprehensive support and a licence to use the TaxAssist Accountants' brand which will allow you to build a network of 65+ of your own franchisees within an agreed territory.

Your role will be to commence recruiting, training and supporting your growing network of franchisees within your exclusive territory.

We will provide the established business model together with all the systems and tactics that have made us so successful in the UK, Ireland and Australia – you will bring with you financial and business or tax and accountancy experience and plenty of energy, personality and vision – together this is a recipe for success.

We have proven that the TaxAssist Accountants Master Franchise concept works. In 2009, we awarded our Master Franchise Rights to an accounting firm in the Republic of Ireland who have gone on to establish a network of 19 franchised territories (September 2020). The full case study can be found here. In 2015, we awarded Master Franchise Rights to an established firm based in Australia for Queensland, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria. They have established a network of 9 franchised areas (September 2020).
