Do you have a background in accountancy or finance and have a real interest in crunching numbers?
Do you have a passion and ability to work with people of all levels in a high pressured, fast paced environment?
Would you like to provide a professional, valuable service at a competitive price?
If yes, then a future with an accountancy franchise could be just the ticket.
The role of an Accountancy and Tax franchisee is to service Small to Mid-sized businesses, helping them to get their finances in order, run their daily accounting operations and to help them identify new areas for growth.
In the current market, Small-Medium Enterprise’s make up for 99.3% of all private sector businesses – the world of small business is big business!
With such growth in the Small-Medium enterprise market, there is a real demand for low cost, high value accountancy solutions to offer affordable, professional accounting services. With many SME’s not able to undertake the accountancy aspect of business themselves, usually through lack of skills and knowledge, a cost effective accountancy and payroll package can add real value to a lot of small business owners.
As with almost every small business, you will split your time between working ‘In’ the business and working ‘On’ the business. Working ‘In’ the business includes things such as book keeping for clients, submitting tax related documents and providing specialist financial advice. Working ‘On’ the business will include things like networking, meeting with prospective clients to bring in new business and following the systems of the franchisor to market your services.
An ability to build relationships with business owners and professionals over multiple channels of communication will help your venture succeed. Recent figures show that the hiring of external bookkeepers has actually increased from 17% – 22%, even with the introduction of easy to use software on phones and tablets, such as Quickbooks; so this really is an opportunity to get into an industry that is continually growing.
If you’re tired of working relentlessly for somebody else, this really could be an opportunity for you to provide an industry leading service with great earning potential. Whether you are an accountancy wizard, or you are geared more towards business development, this could be the opportunity for you to run a successful accountancy franchise for yourself, but not by yourself.
If this sounds like an opportunity that is of interest to you, we at Knight Franchises are here to help guide you through the whole process; from the initial phone consultation, all the way to signing your franchise agreement.
We work closely with you to present the most viable options, based on your wants and needs, that align with your personal and professional goals. We look to present a vast range of opportunities within the industry to help you realise your true wants and needs when it comes to business ownership.
