##Five Years Of Success In Ireland For TaxAssist Accountants
Small business tax and accountancy specialists TaxAssist Accountants is celebrating the success of their Republic of Ireland operation, as they celebrate five years since they established their pilot shop front and support centre in Dublin in 2009.
Greg Murphy, a Certified Accountant, and Roddy Comyn, a Chartered Accountant, were awarded the Master Franchise Licence for TaxAssist Accountants in the Republic of Ireland and haven’t looked back as they have seen the franchise go from strength to strength. They celebrated the event at their Annual Conference, which was held at the Morrison Hotel in Dublin, which as well as being a motivational and informative event also rewarded the top performing franchisees across their network of 26 franchisees.
Overall, 2014 has seen fantastic growth in numbers in the Republic. In five years of operation, TaxAssist Direect Ireland has now passed the 5,000 clients mark and, more importantly, they have also gone past the €5,000,000 fee bank mark.
Murphy commented: “Prior to joining TaxAssist Accountants myself and Roddy were partners in a local practice in the Fairview region of Dublin. While the practice was successful in its own right, we were both ambitious and wanted to develop a national brand across Ireland.
TaxAssist offered a distinctive brand and clear approach to marketing and it was one we were sure would work well in Ireland, even in a recession – as has been proven right. Where the franchise model adds value, is the strength of the brand and the high visibility of the shop-front premises.
As a Master Franchisor I have been given the tools, support and experience I need from TaxAssist UK to make the business successful in Ireland and I think that TaxAssist Ireland is a great blueprint of how the franchise model can work in other countries. We’ve all very much enjoyed building the brand over the last five years. Here’s to the next 5 years of success and more!”
