Martin Thomas and Sarah Kay join in partnership for new venture at 205 Lavender Hill, London, to operate alongside Martin’s shop in Victoria.
Martin Thomas has been a TaxAssist Accountant for eight years, operating from a hugely successful practice at Victoria in Central London, where he currently looks after 600 clients alongside his six members of staff.
Experienced accountant Sarah Kay has now become a franchise partner alongside Martin to operate the new shop at Clapham Junction, having worked as a practice manager for Martin for the last four years.
“My background is in small business accounting and tax and I think I’m a perfect fit for the TaxAssist business model,” explains Sarah. “The set up suits my strengths and having a proven track record of managing TaxAssist Victoria, means I can join the franchise with full confidence.”
“TaxAssist is a fantastic brand, and having seen first-hand the support and expertise available, I think it is miles ahead of a lot of its competition.
“Martin and I make a good team and over the last four years, client numbers have grown which I’m confident will continue, particularly as we are looking to open further shops.”
Addressing the current climate in the pandemic, Martin said: “Clearly London is currently much quieter that it would usually be, but even still, we have continued to sign up a good number of clients and January is proving to be as busy as ever.
“The Victoria shop is a fantastic looking shop in a great location, and we have now replicated this at Clapham, where we are hoping to repeat our success. We have already generated a lot of interest among local businesses and self-employed professions who have arranged appointments for meetings, so we are very much available for business. Clients can contact us for a free initial consultation either by calling us or online as they prefer.”
