After our most successful start to the year yet, with sales of nearly £3m in January alone, TaxAssist Accountants is celebrating again after our network opened its 150th shop in Chesham, Buckinghamshire.
Our award-winning franchise, which set up 18 years ago, has more than 200 offices across the UK, 150 of them now operating from shop-style premises on the high street.
Andrew Twynam, owner of TaxAssist Accountants in Chesham and Hemel Hempstead, commented: “I set up in serviced offices in Hemel Hempstead in March 2012, but knew I wanted to be in shop-front premises as soon as possible. While looking for suitable premises, the franchisor came across the high street office space in Chesham and I knew it was perfect.
“I am delighted to have opened the new high street office; we’re already experiencing a huge increase in customer enquiries and small business owners dropping in since we opened. We hope to replicate this by moving to a suitable shop-front in Hemel Hempstead in the not too distant future.”
A key aspect of the TaxAssist Accountants business model, shop-front offices are designed to offer convenient, accessible services that become a visible part of local business communities.
James Mattam, business development manager at TaxAssist Accountants said: “Where the franchise model adds value is the strength of a corporate brand, the high visibility of the TaxAssist Accountants shop-front premises and an extremely experienced network and central support centre.
2013 has been a very positive year so far. By offering an easily accessible, straight-talking accountancy service, our network has experienced exceptional growth in the face of a challenging economic climate.”
