Who We Look For

We look for professional people who have strong commercial and/or financial backgrounds

We look for people who are capable of setting themselves up in business, but see the value in the brand, training, support and systems that investing in a franchise with TaxAssist Accountants brings.

Most franchisees join us with a recognised accountancy qualification, typically, ACA, ACCA, CTA, AAT, ATT or CIMA and have a mix of industry and practice backgrounds. You do not necessarily need to have worked in practice recently and you don't have to be an accountant to join us.

We are also pleased to inform you that we are an Authorised Training employer for ICAEW, authorised to train ICAEW Chartered Accountants.

We are, however, very selective on who we award a franchise to. Franchisees who are not qualified accountants will come from senior management positions within the banking/financial services sectors and will need to show existing financial acumen.

We have a number of case studies for you to view the range of people who have joined TaxAssist Accountants.

You will need to demonstrate high levels of

  • Commercial awareness
  • Business acumen
  • Energy
  • Motivation
  • Communication skills
  • Discipline to follow a proven, successful business model

Like running your own business, running a franchise requires hard work and commitment. We provide the systems, the business model and the experience to run the business well, but the model also relies on you to make it work by introducing your own personality, energy and initiative.
