“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


Why now is the time to open an accountancy practice

In this video, Karl Sandall, Group Chief Executive, interviews Daren Moore, Group Commercial Director, on a number of key themes.

They discuss the accountancy services needed by small businesses in 2021 and beyond, the main areas of government support that small business owners and our network of accountants should be concentrating on, and the business opportunity that is out there in terms of running your own practice.

It is evident that clients need the services of a quality accountant more than ever before, to help them to understand what their business is doing, access finance, plan for the future and make key business decisions. The demands of clients are increasing and changing and COVID has accelerated those changes.

With TaxAssist practices being highly visible shop premises and relationship based, our accountants are ideally placed to support clients, to get to know them and their business and help through these difficult times.
