Facing a commute of over 3 hours daily in to London, Anthony Royle was looking to find a local opportunity. The TaxAssist Ashford resale was an ideal match, both in terms of location and skillset, having trained as a Chartered Accountant with PWC in South Africa.
"I’d been in investment banking in London for over 20 years, working in both finance and operational management roles. Having moved to Kent 9 years ago, I was looking for a better work life balance and was delighted to come across the TaxAssist Ashford resale. My wife and I attended the Discovery Day in January 2019 and we were both impressed with the presentation and network success stories.
We liked the support provided, the proven business model, the opportunity to create a business asset and availability of business financing. It was particularly useful to be able to visit other TaxAssist shops and locations in the area and gain a first-hand understanding of the business, something not possible in a single practice purchase.
Having the support centre available for advertising, lead management, technical training and operational support is invaluable. The use of the initial franchise fee to fund the training program demonstrates the commitment of the franchise to invest in the network and provide a really first-class start, to what will be for many, the first leap into the unknown journey of self-employment."
