Accounting Master Franchise Opportunity in New Zealand


Introduction to TaxAssist Accountants from CEO of the TaxAssist Group Ltd Karl Sandall


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.

The TaxAssist Accountants Master Franchise opportunity has been successfully proven. We awarded our Master Franchise Rights in 2009 to an accountancy firm in the Republic of Ireland. Since then, the Master Franchisee has established a network of 19 (April 2019) franchised territories. 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. The Master Franchisees have established a network of 11 (April 2019) franchised territories. In 2018, we awarded the Master Franchise Rights for Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory to an established firm in Perth.


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.
