TaxAssist Accountants’ franchisees celebrate landmark anniversaries

Jonathan Berks has been so delighted with the success of the TaxAssist Accountants business model, he is celebrating his 20th anniversary, while five of his fellow franchisees are marking 15 years as part of the network.

Jonathan, who owns TaxAssist Accountants in Royston, Hertfordshire, is the network’s longest-serving franchisee, having joined in 1996.

One of TaxAssist’s very first franchisees, Jonathan chose to invest his future in the business model after being made redundant… and has never looked back.

“The franchise has developed enormously over the 20 years I have been with TaxAssist Accountants,”

explained Jonathan.

“I am so pleased I chose this franchise, as it has not only afforded me a comfortable standard of living, but will also provide me with a solid investment which will allow me to retire comfortably.

“I would definitely encourage anyone considering taking on their own practice to look at TaxAssist Accountants and go along to meet them. I don’t think you will be disappointed."

However, it’s 20 and not out for Jonathan who intends very much to remain part of his community for some time to come.

Jonathan added:

“While I plan to continue looking after the accountancy and small business needs of my 300 clients for the foreseeable future, I am working closely with my daughter-in-law, Samantha Clark, to lay firm foundations for the continuation of the business. To provide her with a valuable insight and ensure the eventual handover will happen seamlessly, Samantha has been taking on more responsibility with the day to day running of the practice."

Sarah Robertson, Group Operations Director of TaxAssist Accountants, said:

“We would like to congratulate Jonathan for 20 sterling years’ operating his practice, and to our five franchisees who are celebrating 15 years. The franchise model has evolved considerably from our early days to become the fully-fledged and highly regarded franchise model it has become today. When franchisees celebrate such important milestones, they are testament to what can be achieved when you become part of the TaxAssist Accountants network.”

The five franchisees celebrating 15 years are:

Barry McGougan – Kilmarnock & Galston

Roland Wood – Shepperton

Khaliq & Sadia Rahman – Twickenham, Teddington and Hounslow

David Underwood – Harrogate & Knaresborough John Barr – Rugby
