Four TaxAssist Accountants practices, Terry and Elizabeth Peachman (Lincoln), Tess Blayton (Newton Abbot and Totnes), Chris and Angela Cottee (Bourne and Sleaford) and Mark Jury (Crowborough) are this year marking their 20th anniversaries.
All have built up substantial businesses and remain pleased with their decision to join the UK’s largest network of small business specialist accountants and leading accountancy franchise.
Terry said: “I never imagined having the business I have today when I set out all those years ago. It has exceeded all expectations.”
Tess bought her practice as a franchise resale in 2011, with 2022 being the 20th anniversary of the business. She said: “When I joined TaxAssist, I knew that it was the right thing for me. That has proved to be the case over and over again. Thank you to everyone at the Support Centre for the amazing support that has been given over the years.”
Chris, who runs his franchise with his wife Angela, said: “It only seems like yesterday we were starting out on our journey. I would like to thank all at the Support Centre, because without their hard work and support over the last 20 years, TaxAssist would not be the well respected and trusted brand it is today.
“I’m happy to report that we have recently signed up for another 10 years with TaxAssist!”
Mark said: “A lot has changed since I joined TaxAssist Accountants in 2002, in the accounting industry and the way the network has grown. But the same supportive family feel has endured, while the franchise has continued to innovate and develop into the enormously successful brand it is today. My thanks to everyone for their help over the years.”
