Our business specialises in servicing the needs of small businesses and self-employed individuals, a burgeoning sector that has traditionally been over-charged and under-serviced.
Currently, every small business needs to have an annual set of accounts prepared and a tax return submitted. With a number of developments set to change the way taxes are reported, demand for our services will only increase.
TaxAssist has been a game changer in the way it ‘retails’ tax and accountancy services through open and welcoming shops. This concept has proven to be a very effective way to build a business, with many franchisees opening multiple shops, which has become very popular with small businesses who enjoy the convenient, local service.
We welcome applications from accountants in industry or practice and commercially experienced individuals, as the ultimate goal is to manage a team of accountants, allowing you to work on the business rather than in it.
