TaxAssist Accountants has recognised the brand loyalty of nine of its franchisees with gifts to celebrate their 15th year in practice with the franchise.
Keith Adams (Bath, Bedminster, Bristol South and Clifton), Steve Andrew (Oldham), Nick and Pat Brook (Barnsley, Huddersfield and Sheffield North), Drazen Coric (East Finchley), Dave Forrester (Bingley, Ilkley and Keighley), Gary and Cheryl Jacks (Chester, Ellesmere Port, Wallasey and Queensferry), Indira Mandalia (Pinner), Alex Smith (Peverell and Plymouth) and Ian Smith (Horfield) all now operate substantial practices, having started with no clients back in 2006. Some also operate from multiple premises and have more than one franchise territory.
Alex Smith praised the franchise, which he joined when he was 30 years old, after deciding to relocate from Surrey to Devon to start a family and a new life.
“Thank you so much, the time really has flown, it is a significant milestone. When I joined, I’d had three previous roles, none exceeding four years and I hadn’t really found my true vocation if I’m honest,” said Alex.
“TaxAssist has given me this and so much more. I often consider myself so lucky to have found a career and ‘extended family’ of colleagues where I do genuinely enjoy working. So, thank you to all the Support Centre team. A truly unique company.”
Drazen Coric was also keen to praise the franchise, adding: “I have enjoyed my time with the network and will hopefully continue for many more years to come.
“It is great to be able to work within our local community and help small businesses and individuals with a range of services. This has seen my wife and I make many new friends and acquaintances over the last 15 years.
“Thank you to the Norwich team for all support and encouragement you have given us in this time.”
Ian Smith added: “15 years has passed by so quickly and I have grown as a person from a standing start to running my own profitable business – I could never go back to working for someone else. Thanks for all the support and the opportunity to build my own business – it’s been an experience that fulfilled one of my earliest ambitions to be my own boss.”
