People are desperate to return to normality and there is a lot of pent-up desire to spend and socialize. All good news for small business owners – the core client base of TaxAssist Advisors.
It also bodes well for our franchise, with TaxAssist taking great pride in differentiating itself by being ‘Small Business Champions’ and with our retail storefront model.
TaxAssist practices operate through highly visible premises and are based in the hearts of their local business communities. This means they are ideally placed to support clients by getting to know them and their businesses and working together to help them through the economic recovery.
There are a staggering number of small businesses in the US who play a key role in the economy and these business owners now need extra support from their accountant to help them to understand how their business is performing and to look ahead. They need to protect their business, plan for growth, consider financing, make key decisions and to plan for their own and their family’s future.
We have a very broad offering in terms of what we can do – a real one-stop-shop – and we are filling a need in the marketplace, recognizing that small businesses are an underserved market, and there is nothing out there quite like the TaxAssist franchise model.
There is huge potential and a real need for our services, which is why I believe now, is the time to be opening a small business accounting practice.
If you are interested in joining TaxAssist Advisors, we are looking for CPA-experienced accountants working in industry, full-time tax preparers looking to scale up their business, individuals with a strong financial services or banking background, as well as those that already own an accounting or tax practice they wish to develop as part of a global brand.
