Demand For Rosemary Bookkeeping Further on the Rise
The demand for Rosemary Bookkeeping services and the Rosemary franchise opportunity are increasing with record numbers. A recent report from the Department for Business Innovation and Skills revealed that 2012 saw the highest number of private sector businesses in the UK since 2000, with 4.8 million.
The report further revealed that SMEs accounted for 99.9 per cent of all private sector businesses in the UK and that the total number of sole traders increased by a staggering 6 per cent from 2011 to 2012 alone.
Rosemary Bookkeeping has also participated in the increase of these figures. They have assisted their 26 franchisees in starting their own successful businesses since 2010 and have helped over 100 SME business in 2013 alone. By law, every business in the UK is required to keep records of their transactions which are later used by an accountant to file for tax and often VAT. Managing these transactions through bookkeeping is often the biggest headache to the small business owner and a task that is left at the bottom of the pile.
The Rosemary Bookkeeping™ franchise responds to the increasing need in the UK for an affordable, professional bookkeeping service that supports both the client and the accountant. Working in harmony with the accountant, providing them with exactly what they need in the format they want saves everyone time and money.
“Rosemary bookkeeping has helped people achieve their ambitions of working for themselves and has helped swell the number of SME’s in the UK. After our launch in 2010 we saw the number of franchise partners almost quadruple and from then on the franchise has kept growing. 2012 saw us take on 13 new franchise partners which was up 91 per cent on 2011. In the first quarter in 2013 we have already taken on four new franchise owners and our goal is to further expand the franchise to meet the increasing demand for our services,” says Kellie Blake, Operations Support.
