New recruits have recently joined the technical, marketing and technology teams further bolstering support to the TaxAssist franchise network.
Gary Clark AAT, CTA, a highly experienced tax practitioner has recently joined the Norwich based Support Centre as Technical Manager, to strengthen the support to its network of over 200 franchisees.
Gary, who has 30 years of experience, including 10 years as a specialist tax manager covering personal tax, CGT and IHT and 10 years as a proprietor of his own practice, joins an experienced and diverse team, who provide technical training, support and advice to the fast-growing franchise network.
Lee Currell and Nick Kyle join the digital technology team as Software Training and Support Officer and Junior Web Developer respectively, Patsy Boyle joins the marketing and business development team as a Marketing Executive and Jack and James Sandall join on 18 month Business Administration Apprenticeships with Skills Edge Training.
Karl Sandall, Group Chief Executive Director, said: “We remain committed to investing in support to our network as the need arises and I am delighted to welcome the new additions to the team.
“Gary brings with him a wealth of expertise, including providing advisory services to clients seeking income and capital taxes advice, all aspects of personal tax compliance and invaluable real-world practice experience, from which our franchisees can benefit.
“Our digital technology team has now grown to seven, with a further senior appointment expected shortly, and our marketing and business development team to 11 – an example of our desire to lead from the front in terms of embracing and rolling out new software effectively and efficiently and supporting our franchisees to grow substantial practices.”
Continuing to buck industry trends with its consistently high levels of new franchisee recruitment, TaxAssist Accountants welcomed 16 new franchises in 2018 with 20 new joiners scheduled to complete training in 2019.
To meet this growing demand, The TaxAssist Group expanded its office premises on Broadland Business Park earlier in the year, and plan to recruit further in the next few months, to complement the team of 58, who currently support UK and International Operations.
TaxAssist Accountants is the UK’s largest network providing tax and accountancy advice and services specifically for small businesses, with more than 300 TaxAssist Accountants offices nationwide. It is also established in Ireland and Australia and further expansion is planned to the USA in early 2020.
