As a TaxAssist Accountants franchisee, you’ll be your own boss, but you won’t be on your own.
Are you an Accountant who has always wanted to run your own practice? We give you the training & tools to do just that…

Top reasons to become a TaxAssist Accountants franchisee

  • The leading tax and accountancy franchise in Ireland
  • Proven success – over 20,000 branches and 6,000 satisfied customers
  • Huge market in need of specialised services
  • Earning potential – expected turnover of 300,000+ after 5 years.

TaxAssist Accountants Overview

If so, then why not consider running your own accountancy practice with innovative and award-winning TaxAssist Accountants?

Accountancy fee banks are genuinely in demand and are a real asset for your future, whether you have a plan of five years, 10 years or much longer.

With over 20 branches and 6,000 satisfied customers, TaxAssist Accountants is Ireland’s largest network of accountants specialising in servicing the needs of small businesses and self-employed individuals, and the leading tax and accountancy franchise in Ireland. It offers brand credibility from day one, mixed with professional initial and ongoing training and support for you and your staff.

How big is the market?

According to figures published by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation in 2017, there are 250,143 small and medium enterprises active in Ireland. 232,015 of these are classified as 'micro' businesses i.e. having less than 10 employees. We operate in a very large, buoyant market that has traditionally been over charged and under serviced.

A recognised brand

One of the major reasons our franchisees chose to join TaxAssist is because of our brand and marketing expertise. From our support centre in Dublin, we employ staff who are running nationwide marketing campaigns across several mediums, including but not limited to; PR, sponsorship, national radio advertising and most importantly a large and focused digital marketing campaign. This advertising ensures that small businesses will see the brand and recognise our name in the marketplace. It also gets the phone ringing daily with direct enquiries from clients who need an accountant. These enquires are qualified by us and then sent on to you to meet with; this supply of leads is a major advantage in the market.

As well as this national marketing, franchisees also benefit from having everything they need to run their own local marketing campaigns: your own website, a social media presence, PR coverage, advert templates, initial and ongoing training, shopfront searches and a comprehensive online presence. These and other initiatives will generate leads (business opportunities).

Your Role

Your role is to develop the practice. In order to work on the business rather than in it, you must be able to build a team of staff to assist with work production, as your time will be spent as principal of the business, networking, managing staff and meeting with clients. When you are ready to sell your practice, we can help you realise the value of your asset and you have the knowledge that we have on many occasions sold practices in excess of the industry norms.

Earning potential

TaxAssist works with you, both in creating an initial business plan and supporting you to achieve it.

Business development will depend on your own ambition, but franchisees should aim to build up turnover and profits consistently, aiming for a turnover of €300,000+ after five years. We expect a third of your turnover to cover staff costs, another third to cover the other costs associated with running your business and the final third being your profit.

After five years some franchisees are happy to maintain this level, comfortable with the income generated from the business, whilst other franchisees continue to drive their business forward, by continuing to be proactive with networking and marketing strategies, pushing past the €500,000 turnover level.

This level of success can be achieved and even exceeded.

Training and Support

The majority of our franchisees come to us with strong professional backgrounds but they may have been out of practice a long time or they may have trained in a different industry. Our Dublin-based support centre offers a complete range of training in technical, marketing and business development support. Our initial training course is delivered by qualified in-house experts, working alongside selected third party specialist training partners.

The initial training course covers:
  • Accounts production and taxation for sole traders and partnerships
  • Accounting software
  • Case studies
  • Practice management and social media
  • Sales, marketing and recruitment
Further training is provided at months two, three and six, as well as ongoing regional courses and CPD for you and your staff. The support centre offers a complete range of professional, experienced and qualified personnel to fully support your business endeavours. Full training, support and guidance are given to operate your business under the TaxAssist Accountants brand name.

Financial information

The franchise fee to join TaxAssist Accountants is €39,450 plus VAT. Your overall initial capital requirements will be between €100,000 and €120,000. These figures will be dependent on location and level of personal drawings required.

TaxAssist Accountants Testimonials
I have had great support from the Support Centre, who are always on hand to answer any queries I have or to bounce ideas off of, whether these are technical or general practice management queries. The biggest help though has been in the sales and marketing area, as like most other accountants marketing would not previously have been my strong point. Being part of TaxAssist Accountants has given me access to excellent sales and marketing training, tried and tested campaigns and adverts and sales approaches that do work
