Newbury franchisee passes the reins

Thirteen years after setting up small business accountancy specialists TaxAssist Accountants in Newbury, Richard Adams has handed the reins to local accountant Paul Greenan after a successful franchise resale.

Paul, a qualified accountant, took over the business on Bartholomew Street in Newbury on 1st December, to look after the specialist small business needs of the local community. After working in various financial roles within the IT sector, Paul decided to take the next steps of running his own company.

Paul commented: “I’ve always been interested in entrepreneurship but never felt it was the right time to have my own business until now. The accessible shop based format and client base Richard has built up is a great starting point for me and the business. I’m confident we will continue to meet the developing needs of the small business community and I’m really looking forward to meeting current and new clients in and around the West Berkshire area.”

Paul, who will be working alongside the current team, is currently recruiting for a part time tax manager and intends to add an office junior to the team in due course.

He added: “I have big plans for TaxAssist Accountants in Newbury – I’m planning to recruit and later in the year, I’ll be hosting a launch event for the small business community to showcase what we offer.”

With more than 200 franchised areas already across the UK, the network is always looking to further expand its reach and encourage more people to run their own TaxAssist accountancy franchise.

Discovery Days are the perfect starting point for anyone that’s thinking of branching out on their own as an accountant. They help accountants to understand the TaxAssist business model, the support on offer and more importantly, meet the senior TaxAssist team.

The next Discovery Day is on 2nd March 2017, with other days planned for 11th April and 17th May. Call us today on 0800 0188297 for a confidential chat about becoming an integral part of the TaxAssist Accountants network.
