Karl Sandall, The TaxAssist Group CEO, discusses some of the support measures which have been rolled out to its network of franchisees and their clients.
TaxAssist’s first Virtual Discovery Day, which will provide a complete overview of the business opportunity, will be held on 21st April, with monthly virtual discovery days planned thereafter. The event will be hosted by David Paulson, Senior Manager, Global Franchise Recruitment, with additional presentations on key elements of support by Directors and Senior Managers as well as a Q&A with a franchisee. A representative from one of the banks will also be available to advise on funding options.
“We have carefully planned our Virtual Discovery Day to ensure that attendees can spend a full day with us, in a group setting,” explained David. “They will be able to learn more about the TaxAssist Accountants business opportunity and the elements of support available to them, as well as getting to know the department heads who are all dedicated to making their franchise a success.
“The format of the day will be similar to our usual Discovery Days, running from 9.30am – 4.00pm with presentations and short breaks throughout the day, followed by individual one-to-ones the day after. We expect the event, which will be held on Zoom, to be popular so booking in advance is essential.
“We know that the Norwich-based Support Centre is a long way to travel for many, so I would encourage interested parties to take advantage of the current social distancing measures in force due to COVID-19, to allow us to bring our offering to them within the safety of their own home. We are living through much uncertainty in terms of when things will get ‘back to normal’ and recognise that everybody will be working at their own pace. However, this is an ideal opportunity to make contact now, and plan ahead for the future.”
