You now have the opportunity to join The Tax Shop franchise family. With various business opportunities available throughout the country and special offers on franchises, we provide you with all the benefits of being a franchisee including:
Why our Franchise Concept?
The Tax Shop offers a comprehensive service offering in the country and with our unique product profile, we have set our brand apart from other tax consultant firms. We offer from payroll processing to accounting and tax services under one roof.
Though franchises similar to this concept have been established in overseas countries, it is still a new concept in South Africa, meaning that you have a growing market and unique selling point. The success of such a franchise concept has been proven in Europe and the USA, which also means that you buy into a proven concept when buying a The Tax Shop franchise in South Africa. We thus offer you a solid platform from where to grow your business. Our clients include the large middle-income class and you thus have a broad market to cater to.
Affordable Franchise License Fee
With the license fee subject to change and often being reduced as part of a promotion, we offer you an affordable means to start a business offering much needed services. We recommend that you budget for the license fee and an additional R30,000 working capital to ensure start-up success.
A 10% royalty fee applies and is based on turnover consisting of 7% management fee for covering the cost of updating you with information regarding software and our services, the ongoing support and franchise group administration, and 3% advertising fee for covering the regional and national marketing and advertising costs.
We offer zones that indicate the areas in which shops or franchise businesses operate with one shop for every 100,000 persons. With this scenario it is completely possible to have more than one franchise shop in a zone. An area with a population of 300,000 can have three shops within the zone. The economic activity within the specific zone and the population demographics determine how many shops can be in the zone. We recommend using The Tax Shop franchising page to determine whether a specific location is still available. You can determine the location of your business and thus have more freedom in business decision making than most franchises offer.
With a team available to answer your technical questions during business hours, you will have unlimited backup and full support from The Tax Shop Head Office and superb training.
Advertising and Marketing
We print 10,000 flyers and 1,000 business cards initially and advertise in your local area, as well as nationally in newspapers, through radio ads and with a strong online presence, including Google AdWords and organic search engine marketing. We assist franchisees with local marketing campaigns and pass leads to the franchisees.
Benefit from training and comprehensive assistance in setting up the franchise outlet once you have paid your license fee. You can open your business doors immediately after having completed training at our head office.
Choose Your Own Business Entity
We provide the freedom to choose your business entity such as sole proprietor, partnership or company. However, we strongly recommend setting up a company for tax and legal purposes.
