Franchising is a lucrative business and overseas expansion is an incredible opportunity to reach your products and services to the masses. Following a successful launch in the UK, the Republic of Ireland and Australia, TaxAssist Accountants are now expanding their services to the US.

Founded in 1995, TaxAssist Accountants has been providing quality tax accountancy services and advice for small businesses across the UK. With over 425 franchises around the world, TaxAssist has been servicing 86,000 small businesses and self-employed individuals with global annual billings of more than £56m. Despite unprecedented struggles during the coronavirus pandemic, TaxAssist has managed to power through the storm and is now preparing for a full-scale launch into the US.

Hal Gross, who is currently based in New Jersey, will hold the role as President with Mike Melling as Director of US operations. Directors of The TaxAssist Direct Group in the UK, Karl Sandall, Phil Sullivan and John Chambers, will also act as Directors for TaxAssist Direct USA Inc.

Mr Gross and Mr Melling both have extensive international experience in banking and finance, having worked for some of the largest finance corporations in the world. Mr Melling is also a successful TaxAssist Accountants franchisee in the UK. In 2012, he purchased a large single location practice resale for £1m in 2012, followed by a further resale purchase in 2015.

“After years of careful research and planning, I am pleased to advise that we have completed the formation of TaxAssist Direct USA Inc.,” Karl Sandall, Group Chief Executive Director said. “This has been a long-held wish of mine personally and always the company’s long-term aim, with our successful franchise model offering massive potential.”

TaxAssist is expecting a surge of interest in franchising in the USA during and after the coronavirus pandemic, as many people may consider starting their businesses as they re-think their lives and plan a possible career change.

 “These are unprecedented times for everyone, but we have a very sound business model, and our services have never been in more demand, as people look to their accountant for advice and guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic, hence our confidence in continuing with our plans to launch the franchise in the USA,” Mr Sandall added.

“Our business model is going to appeal to CPA-qualified accountants working in industry, individuals with a strong financial services or banking background, as well as those that already own an accounting practice they wish to develop as part of a global brand. We are looking for people who are capable of setting themselves up in business, but see the value in the brand, training, support and systems that investing in a franchise with TaxAssist Accountants brings.”

TaxAssist are preparing for their official launch in the US, set to take place at the 2020 International Franchise Online Expo on May 28 to May 30. David Paulson, Senior Vice President, Franchise Development, will be seconded to New Jersey later this year, where TaxAssist’s USA Support Centre will be based. David is working behind the scenes with the TaxAssist International Team and investors to do as much preparation as possible in readiness for the official launch later this month.
