TaxAssist Advisor Jemel Smith recently held a launch party to officially announce his new storefront – the first TaxAssist storefront in the US – is open to the public.
Douglasville native Jemel, who is the shop’s owner, cut the ribbon with the support of the Chambers of Commerce, who helped to welcome TaxAssist Advisors to the city.
Jemel said, “I’m thrilled to introduce the TaxAssist brand to the US market, and to showcase the services TaxAssist provides. We had a fantastic launch celebration, and I really enjoyed the many conversations I had with businesses eager to find out more about the services and support on offer.
“I made the decision to join the TaxAssist network because it is the only international chain that is built to serve the small business owner beyond traditional financial statements and tax returns. With the power of an international brand, I knew we could offer value added services designed to help entrepreneurs to build a more profitable business.
“As a small business owner myself, with over 20 years in the industry, I am passionate about providing help and advice to this vitally important sector, delivering a year-round advisory service to help clients save more in taxes,” stated Jemel.
The shop launch also received support from local businesses such as Acceptance Insurance, Chapel Hill News and View, Wilson, Buff City Soap Douglasville, Nothing Budnt Cake, The Tipsy Lady, Wingstop, Douglas Donuts and Hadnots Beard Care with a special thanks to Ivy Grand Cakes and ZayRuss Photos.
TaxAssist Advisors is one of the largest networks of independent advisors in the UK and is now crossing over to the US market, with Douglasville as its first storefront location. With the increase in demand from existing small businesses and start-up companies, TaxAssist Advisors has expanded to Texas and New Jersey, with official storefront openings to follow soon.
If you share a passion to help your local small businesses, a TaxAssist franchise can provide the systems and support you need to be successful.
