Our International Support
With more than 24 years' experience of operating a substantial network, our branded shopfronts are well-recognised and respected.
Unlike some of our competitors, our entire Support Centre staff are 100% committed to supporting the franchise network and have no other business interests to take their focus away from the importance of assisting the network.
Our package for Master Franchisees and Area Representatives provides comprehensive training and a complete overview of the TaxAssist Accountants system in action.
Training at our UK support centre
Our initial training at our Support Centre in the UK is split into two parts. The first programme trains Master Franchisees and Area Representatives on how to successfully recruit, develop and support a network of franchisees. The second element covers running a TaxAssist Accountants franchise and includes training on business development, marketing, practice management, software and technical operations.
The initial training is then followed up 'on the ground' to ensure that it has been properly received, understood and implemented.
Our training includes:
- Recruiting franchisees
- Setting up franchisees
- Initial training for franchisees
- Managing franchisees
- Ongoing development for franchisees and continual professional development
- Network administration
- Strengthening the network
- Brand development
- Strategic partners
We are focused on not just awarding Master Franchise and Area Representative rights, but working with our international partners to secure long-term success.
While not providing technical support directly, our dedicated international support team provide comprehensive ongoing consultancy advice to our international partners in establishing systems for:
- Ongoing training programmes
- Establishing helpline facilities
- Support website
- Support personnel visits
- Regular communication
- Marketing initiatives
- Franchisee recruitment
- Business coaching
To further support our international partners, we provide visits during the crucial set-up and initial training period.
Master Franchisees and Area Repesentatives are also invited to our UK Annual Conference, providing the opportunity to meet the entire Support Centre team, other international partners and our network of UK franchisees.
