A new opportunity has arisen to purchase one of our established Franchises based in Dublin
The franchisee is well established and operates from a very centrally located shopfront in a thriving area with a large and growing population. The business services a mixture of client types and enjoys gross annual recurring fees of circa €270,000 and growing monthly - providing a prospective purchaser with income from day 1.
With a practice well-known in the local business community, along with experienced staff, furniture, IT and telephone systems, any purchaser would be walking into a ready-made business. This represents an excellent foundation upon which a new franchisee can further develop an existing business.
The business is offered as a successful going concern within the TaxAssist Network and the purchaser will become part of our network of accountancy practices. With over 20 branches and 6,000 satisfied customers, TaxAssist Accountants is Ireland’s largest network of accountants specialising in servicing the needs of small businesses and self-employed individuals, and the leading tax and accountancy franchise in Ireland. It offers brand credibility from day one, mixed with professional initial and ongoing training and support for you and your staff.
How big is the market?
According to figures published by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation in 2017, there are 250,143 small and medium enterprises active in Ireland. 232,015 of these are classified as 'micro' businesses i.e. having less than 10 employees. We operate in a very large, buoyant market that has traditionally been over charged and under serviced.
A recognised brand:
One of the major reasons our franchisees chose to join TaxAssist is because of our brand and marketing expertise. From our support centre in Dublin, we employ staff who are running nationwide marketing campaigns across several mediums, including but not limited to; PR, sponsorship, national radio advertising and most importantly a large and focused digital marketing campaign. This advertising ensures that small businesses will see the brand and recognise our name in the marketplace. It also gets the phone ringing daily with direct enquiries from clients who need an accountant. These enquires are qualified by us and then sent on to you to meet with; this supply of leads is a major advantage in the market.
As well as this national marketing, franchisees also benefit from having everything they need to run their own local marketing campaigns: your own website, a social media presence, PR coverage, advert templates, initial and ongoing training, shopfront searches and a comprehensive online presence. These and other initiatives will generate leads (business opportunities).
Your role is to develop the practice. In order to work on the business rather than in it, you must be able to build a team of staff to assist with work production, as your time will be spent as principal of the business, networking, managing staff and meeting with clients. When you are ready to sell your practice, we can help you realise the value of your asset and you have the knowledge that we have on many occasions sold practices in excess of the industry norms.
Training and Support:
The majority of our franchisees come to us with strong professional backgrounds but they may have been out of practice a long time or they may have trained in a different industry. Our Dublin-based support centre offers a complete range of training in technical, marketing and business development support. Our initial training course is delivered by qualified in-house experts, working alongside selected third party specialist training partners.
The initial training course covers:
- Accounts production and taxation for sole traders and partnerships
- Accounting software
- Case studies
- Practice management and social media
- Sales, marketing and recruitment
- Further training is provided at months two, three and six, as well as ongoing regional courses and CPD for you and your staff. The support centre offers a complete range of professional, experienced and qualified personnel to fully support your business endeavours. Full training, support and guidance are given to operate your business under the TaxAssist Accountants brand name.
