"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 New Zealand

The master franchise opportunity

Franchising is now thought to be a key driver of growth in New Zealand and is an important part of its economy. According to the Franchising New Zealand 2017 Survey, there are 631 business format franchises and over 37,000 individual franchise operations. The industry generates an estimated $46.1 billion to the economy. New Zealand also has the highest proportion of franchises per capita.

Based on our research, we are aware that no other business in New Zealand is offering the TaxAssist Accountants' uniquely-packaged accounts and tax service for small businesses. This is why we believe that there is a real growth opportunity for the TaxAssist Accountants brand in New Zealand.

If you are running an existing accounting practice and want to accelerate your growth, we are offering Master Franchise opportunities to existing accountants in New Zealand. We provide comprehensive support and a license to use the TaxAssist Accountants' brand, which will be provided to allow you to build a network of 30-40 of your own franchisees across New Zealand.

The first step will be to establish your own TaxAssist Accountants operation in order to prove the concept in your territory and give visibility to the brand. Once established, you will then 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 tax and accountancy experience and plenty of energy, personality and vision – together this is a recipe for success.

We have proven in the UK, Republic of Ireland and Australia that the TaxAssist Accountants franchising concept works.

In 2009, we awarded our Master Franchise Rights to an accounting firm in Ireland who have gone on to establish a network of 18 franchised territories (February 2021).

In 2015, we launched in Australia. For personal reasons, in 2020 the Master Franchisees relinquished their Master Franchise rights and experienced businesswoman Mandy Sigaloff was appointed as Managing Director to drive up the growth of the network, working alongside the experienced team at the Support Centre in the UK. Mandy has ambitious plans to ensure the brand reaches its full potential, with plans to expand to more than 200 franchised areas across all states in Australia.

Following the success achieved by TaxAssist Accountants in the UK, Republic of Ireland and Australia, this has provided us with the confidence to support Master Franchisees in selected markets where we believe the opportunity is significant. We are, therefore, now currently seeking a Master Franchisee for New Zealand.

If you are interested in acquiring our Master Franchise Rights in New Zealand, or another country then please call our recruitment team on +44 (0) 7825 598635 or email [email protected]m.
