TaxAssist Accountants, the UK’s largest network of small business specialist accountants and leading tax and accounting franchise, which launched in the US earlier in the year, has signed its first Area Representative Agreement with President Hal Gross.
Now, with a growing pipeline of inquiries, Hal, the TaxAssist Accountants US Company President, and Area Representative for the state of New Jersey, is promoting virtual Discovery Days over Zoom, for anyone interested in finding out more about the franchise opportunity, with the next one scheduled for January 20th 2021.
“I’m really excited to have now signed the Area Representative agreement, and keen to spread the word about the significant opportunities available with TaxAssist Accountants,” said Hal.
“We’ve had a considerable amount of interest in the franchise, and we are currently in advanced negotiations with a prospective franchisee who is eager to open our first store front.
“When COVID-19 struck, it was accountants who businesses turned to, to help with business planning, funding and support. With this increased demand, and with clients seeking more from their accountant as they navigate their business through this year and beyond, many will be looking to switch to a more proactive firm.
“TaxAssist Accountants offers a year-round bookkeeping, tax, payroll, and advisory service, based in modern, welcoming store fronts. Using the very latest technology, with all of the time saving and efficiencies this brings, TaxAssist provides a cost-effective service for small businesses, and expertise that traditionally would have been reserved only for larger businesses.
“We know, with the combination of our prominent online brand positioning and store visibility, that as the economy recovers from the events of 2020, we are well placed to service this increase in demand.
“All of our strategic partners are now in place for funding, training, digital marketing and support functions, so we cannot wait to get started on building our network.”
Hal is working closely with experienced franchise professional David Paulson, Senior Vice President, Franchise Development, who, as soon as circumstances allow, will be relocating from the UK to the US to support the expansion of the network, which has the potential for 50 Area Representative and over 4,000 franchisees. David is already in serious discussion with several individuals interested in becoming Area Representatives, as well as potential franchisees in their target states.
TaxAssist Accountants also operates in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Australia and Canada, with plans for further international expansion. There are currently over 263 TaxAssist Accountants franchises worldwide servicing over 82,000 clients.
