Nationwide bookkeeping chain Rosemary Bookkeeping is set to scale its franchise network after signing new franchisees Ashish Brahmbatt and David Vasey, who will be launching their franchises this month.

In a first for the bookkeeping brand, Brahmbatt will be running the company’s first ever family-run franchise with his father and sister-in-law.

Vasey, who had originally enquired about the franchise opportunity in 2010, has “decided to take the leap” will be operating his business in Haselmere, Surrey .

Established in 2002, bfa-accredited Rosemary Bookkeeping offers “intelligent” bookkeeping services to small businesses, accountants and franchisors, and now has over 20 franchisees across the UK.

Its franchise package starts at £12,970 plus an initial £2,870 start-up fee which includes IT equipment and software, and it says its offering is a “serious consideration for those looking for a low cost, high profit margin service business, operated from a home office”.

Vasey commented:

“I had known about Rosemary Bookkeeping for around four years and I liked the friendly and personal approach of being given concise details of the business and I feel that I will be able to adapt my existing skills accordingly as a franchisee.

“I am looking forward to being able to work for myself but still have the business backing of a well-established franchise and to be part of a growing team.

“Initially, I want to operate the franchise personally so that I can get to know the full workings of the process then, hopefully, I will be able to expand the business utilising sub-contractors.”
