“When people say ‘Actually you’ve made an impact, you’ve made a difference to my life’…that’s fulfilling. That encourages you to go back the next day and do more, push yourself… I’m extremely proud of my network, I’m proud of who we are…a network that genuinely cares for its clients.” – Bukky Shonola, TaxAssist Hitchin & Letchworth

Shop Front Concept

We depart from the look and characteristics of traditional accountancy practices


At TaxAssist Accountants we have recognised the changing marketplace for accountants and with our target market being the small business sector, it is vital that we can relate to them in a way that is not intimidating.

When we created the first ‘shop front’ in Norwich our main intentions were to create a modern, welcoming, branded office with the aim of departing from the look and characteristics of traditional accountancy practices. We now have over 250 ‘shop front’ offices open all around the UK.

Visibility, credibility, walk-in business and brand reinforcement are just a few of the benefits that operating from shop front premises brings. In addition to this, having a visible presence within the business community helps to integrate your marketing activities and increase effectiveness.

‘In a 2020 survey to TaxAssist Accountant’s client base, 78%* said that they would like to meet their accountant in person. Making the shop front location the ideal setting for building relationships.’

Our dedicated support team will help you through every stage of your shop move to help you to complete your move in the most efficient and convenient way possible. We'll walk you through everything from finding the right premises, negotiating your lease and planning permission through to refurbishment, staffing advice and holding your launch event.

Each TaxAssist Accountants shop is formally approved at a site visit (currently being done virtually), by the Business Development team at the Support Centre, to ensure that the shop is in the right location and will have the desired impact.
