These and other initiatives will generate inbound leads (business opportunities) for you. We will provide further information on our 'Discovery Days'.
Extensive training is provided, with the initial training for six weeks, with a week’s home study in week four. Starting with an online aptitude test at home before joining the training course.
The tax, accounting and software training is delivered by our team of qualified accountants and trainers in conjunction with specialist training partners. Through this partnership we are able to ensure that materials are up-to-date, directly relevant for our network and of the highest quality.
If you are a qualified accountant or hold tax qualifications, then running your very own TaxAssist Accountants practice can offer you the challenge you have been looking for with the support you need. Bank managers, finance managers and audit managers also make great franchisees too and we have various routes for getting you where you need to be to run a successful accounting practice. If you aren't a qualified accountant, then employing qualified accountants with a Tax Agent license is essential while you concentrate on building the business.

About the Opportunity
The TaxAssist Accountants franchise model is based on very simple principles.
By servicing the needs of small businesses, subcontractors and the self-employed, as a franchisee you can focus on a group of clients that have traditionally been neglected. Keeping to the smaller client can offer time-management advantages and through our training and judicious use of our support functions, you can also provide first class service to your client base.
Our aim is to strengthen our network with franchisees that follow our business development strategies in order to build a sizeable accounting practice. These strategies are based on best practice and powerful marketing techniques that can accelerate the growth of each franchisee's business. Initially, you are likely to spend at least half of your time on business development activities, with the view of growing your practice by spending more of your time attracting new clients, managing customer relationships and leading a team of staff members - the goal is to work on the business rather than in it.
With many years’ experience (since 1995 in the UK) behind us, we have actively evolved our support infrastructure to enable franchisees to build their businesses in a commercially dynamic way.
The proven business model of TaxAssist Accountants is straightforward – take on hundreds of small business clients with relatively uncomplicated work whilst being based in visible, accessible and welcoming shop front premises. And while you are building a valuable asset you will be obtaining an ongoing income. When you are ready to sell your practice, we can help you realise the value of your asset and you have the knowledge that you will be able to sell at industry multiple norms and beyond.
By adhering to the business model and taking a proactive approach to marketing in your territory, you will attract clients at a considerable rate. Client acquisition will be facilitated by our unique and innovative approach to marketing, which will significantly help the build-up of your fee-bank. Alongside this, we generate leads for all franchisees throughout Australia, which clearly separates us from other accountancy franchises.
“The look and feel of the shops are completely different from traditional accounting practices. Clients appreciate our open, welcoming look and we want clients to enjoy coming through the door. The shop certainly seems to be working too, in the first two weeks of opening, I signed 14 clients, the majority of which were walk-in clients!”

Year Business Established
Year Franchising Commenced
TaxAssist Accountants was founded in the UK in 1995 by a group of dedicated professionals and based on a concept that was, and still is, fundamentally simple: to bring first class professional services to the small business owner. Our aim is to continue to expand in a controlled manner, a network of people all working hard to succeed in both financial and personal terms.
Through franchising we knew we could maximise growth potential to the mutual advantage of both TaxAssist Accountants and our Franchisees.
