Opportunities abound for accountancy entrepreneurs as TaxAssist launches Suffolk franchise
Having expanded into Bury St Edmunds, the financial services brand is recruiting more franchisees to continue its UK-wide growth
Business accounting franchise TaxAssist Accountants is celebrating the launch of its latest business in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, which marks the continuing growth of the chain’s UK network.
Run by entrepreneurial husband and wife duo Eliott Betts and Lili Huang, TaxAssist Bury St Edmunds is set to provide local small businesses with financial services and advice from its site on Northgate Street.
Betts and Huang say they joined the franchise after deciding to use their combined 30 years’ financial services experience to launch an accounting business. They now intend to grow their business by recruiting staff.
This news comes in the same month that TaxAssist Accountants’ Goldenacre franchise in Edinburgh has surpassed a milestone six months in business.
Franchisee Alan Johnston, who runs TaxAssist Goldenacre, says he launched the business on Montagu Terrace after recognising a lack of dedicated services for small businesses in the Goldenacre area.
Johnston had previously worked in the small business community before going on to join TaxAssist Accountants at its Corstorphine business, where he worked for 18 months before launching the Goldenacre site in November 2016.
With over 290 locations across the UK, TaxAssist Accountants provides over 65,000 clients with accountancy services, tax returns, payroll, bookkeeping, tax savings and tax advice, and is seeking entrepreneurs to join its network of financial services businesses.
On the opening of TaxAssist Bury St Edmunds, Betts said:
“It’s always been our passion to help small businesses succeed and, with the support of TaxAssist Accountants, we’re confident we can do just that.
“We’re planning an official opening event in the next few months to meet our neighbours and begin networking within the small business community.”
