A stable and profitable business with an excellent local reputation and experienced team, this is a franchise with strong foundations in place for a new owner to drive further growth and asset value.
The current owner is retiring, having run the business since 2010.
This is an opportunity for the financially astute, someone with ambition and an uncompromising approach to provide excellent service.
You’ll need to be a strong leader, managing a small team of professionals; and have great people skills, adept at building relationships with clients.
ABOUT THE BUSINESS
The business provides personal advice and guidance to small business owners, freelancers and their families from a welcoming shop front premises and a visible office location. This advice is wide-ranging, from simple tax planning to business development, cash flow and growth planning.
This gives you personal as well as professional satisfaction as the owner: you’ll change lives and livelihoods.
Your team carry out the client work; your role as the owner is to drive growth and development through activities such as networking, building strong relationships with your clients.
With an established location and a stable team in place, this well-run, modern accountancy & advisory practice has exciting potential for continued further growth within the territory.
The business services around 531 clients with gross annual recurring fees of circa £359k and has consistently enjoyed year-on-year growth in sales. It enjoys an outstanding reputation locally and is well-known in the small business community it serves.
The practice is part of the multi-award-winning TaxAssist network of franchises: the owner benefits from outstanding systems and IT, comprehensive training, and ongoing business & marketing support from a dedicated and experienced team at TaxAssist’s Support Office.
Significant growth potential exists to build on the current client base, including:
- Growing the number of services offered to clients: some of these services can be added without incurring significant operational overheads, because they are provided through TaxAssist’s Support Office teams
- Seek local fee banks to acquire for rapid growth
- Explore our proven outsourcing options to increase profitability
- Expand into another shop front location/buy another practice
Additionally, because TaxAssist is majority-owned by franchisees, there’s an internal share market where you can invest not only in this business, but in the TaxAssist Group itself – a growing global brand which has recently expanded to the US and Canada alongside operations in Ireland and Australia.
