Everything is mapped out for you, including all you need to set up your new business, a comprehensive six-week initial course, and ongoing training and support for both you and your team of accountants and advisors.

In the most turbulent times the UK economy has seen for decades, TaxAssist franchisees have increased their stature in their local business communities thanks to unsurpassed levels of support and communication.

When coronavirus brought small business grinding to a halt, our Support Centre team worked tirelessly to ensure franchisees continually had correct and up-to-date information to meet their clients’ requests for help.

“I always believed that the back-up of the Support Centre would be both reassuring and an invaluable asset that most sole practitioners can never experience. Indeed, this has always been the case but never more so than now. They have been absolutely brilliant and I would be amazed if any other accountancy organisation has got anywhere close to delivering what they have.”

Nick Sims, TaxAssist Accountants Devizes and Chippenham

“We have had fantastic feedback from many of our clients saying how useful this information has been, telling us other accountants have not offered the same service, which in turn has helped us stand out. We really are so grateful and cannot praise the Norwich team enough.”

Brian Molyneux, TaxAssist Accountants Banbury & Bicester


Our ownership structure is unique within franchising. The business is part-owned by franchisees (c.40%) and new franchisees have the opportunity to not only join a successful franchise network, but also to buy a stake in the business via shares if they choose.

Through a formal shareholder voting system, this ownership structure allows franchisees to have their say on major strategic decisions affecting the Group.


Your business will have the marketing power of a global brand. Our proven lead generation service delivers the right prospects to grow your fee bank, while your own responsive website and Google Ads campaigns increase your visibility locally.

Our Training Academy keeps you and your staff ahead of the curve. Bespoke training and technical support is delivered when you and your team need it to help ensure your business remains the local market leader, operating to the highest professional standards.

We’re proud to have been awarded 5 Star Franchisee Satisfaction for seven consecutive years, based on an independent and anonymous survey of our franchisees. We’re a longstanding Full Member of the bfa and a multi-award-winning brand.
