Experts at Head Office will guide you on how to start your franchise and how to operate and manage all aspects of your practice including administration, marketing, client relations and training. Specialist advice is available at all times to our franchise owners.

Here’s why it pays to join us

1.  FASTER GROWTH

Franchises accelerate their growth by tapping into our franchise model which has a proven track history. Tax Shops grow, on average, 3x quicker than practitioners who operate on their own.

2.  GREATER SUCCESS

Tax Shops have an incredible success rate. More than 96% are operational after 10 years compared to less than 20% of practitioners who started and operate alone.

3.  BETTER CLIENTS

Franchises attract better quality clients through the credibility of our franchise. Franchisees regularly report acquiring clients that they would never have obtained had they traded on their own.

4.  ADVANCED MARKETING

Franchises benefit from national marketing campaigns, leads generated by Head Office and the knowledge gained from successful campaigns within our group. The Tax Shop is genuinely at the forefront of marketing in the accounting profession.

5.  INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Franchises gain instant access to our library of training and operating manuals, guides, brand material, client questionnaires, checklists, etc. which would otherwise take many years to build up in practice.

6.  BACKUP AND SUPPORT

New franchisees are closely mentored. All franchisees receive ongoing backup and technical support from top professionals and have access to the vast knowledge base of information in our group.

7.  COMMUNICATION AND TRAINING

Franchises remain at the cutting edge of new developments and changes in our profession and legislation through notifications and ongoing updates from Head Office.

8.  BEST SOFTWARE SYSTEMS

Franchises gain access to the most innovative cloud-based software in the world at significantly discounted rates. All the systems we use differentiate us by making our lives and the lives of our clients much easier.

9.  INCREASED SERVICES AND BUSINESS

Franchises offer more services and gain more business through our network of 20+ trusted business partners. Examples include legal and trust services, B-BBEE consulting, business funding and more.

10.  OUTSOURCING
SOLUTIONS

Franchises may outsource any services they cannot complete (e.g. due to not having sufficient human resources or knowledge) to Head Office. The provision of this service enables franchises to take on any number and size of clients. Furthermore, discounted rates help franchises to profitably mark-up their outsourcing costs to
their clients.

11.  FINANCIAL BENEFITS

Franchises benefit from substantial discounts to professional organisations e.g. SAIT, SAIBA, etc. and in various other areas. For example, professional indemnity insurance, which can cost tens of thousands of Rands a year for a single practitioner will only cost a few hundred Rands a year with us.

12.  AUTOMATED SERVICES

Franchises offer their clients additional, value-added options, not easily available to practitioners trading on their own e.g. monthly newsletter, surveys, etc

13.  BRAND VALUE

Franchisees buy into a brand which is increasing in strength and value all the time and which offers continuity to clients. Franchises typically sell for a premium of 30% when compared to practices which are not franchised.
