"I am ACCA qualified and have extensive accounting and tax experience working within the banking industry. I’ve worked for several of the large banks both directly and within a contracting capacity – Lloyds Banking Group, Morgan Stanley, Blackrock, Clydesdale Bank and Barclays. Further to this, I spent several years working at Grant Thornton gaining valuable tax advisory experience.
The decision to come into TaxAssist Accountants was made over several years. I watched the company grow from strength to strength which provided me with the assurance I needed to finally make the leap.
TaxAssist allowed me to purchase my own practice and run this successfully by providing me with the tools I needed to run the overall business. I knew I could undertake accounting, prepare tax returns, speak with clients and sell myself. What prevented me from going down this route before was the uncertainty of how best to market the business and the scary thought of running my own IT. TaxAssist helped me by providing a system for marketing which had a track record of delivering. I’m confident that this works. Further to this, by being part of the network, I have access to excellent IT staff who take care of all my IT needs. They log onto my computer remotely and fix anything needing fixing.
Since I started 6 weeks ago, I’ve generated £14k in recurring revenue and approximately £5k in one off fees. I have quotes sitting with clients worth £10k and I’m confident some of these will come through.
On the Discovery Day, Karl told me “stick to the model, the system works”. Well I’m well and truly a converted believer."
