TaxAssist Accountants launches in Canada

Small business accountancy specialist TaxAssist Accountants has launches its successful business model in Canada.

The network, which has experienced a year on year growth of 14 per cent in the UK, with almost 200 franchisees and fee income of more than £30 million, have signed a Regional Master Franchise licence for the Greater Toronto area of Ontario with financial and business planning specialist Rina Mancini.

This is the second venture into the international scene – the company signed its first Master licence in the Republic of Ireland five years ago, now a 23-franchisee network with fee income of almost three million euros.

David Paulson, Franchise Recruitment Manager with TaxAssist commented: “We’re delighted to be launching in Canada, which has a burgeoning franchise sector, worth some CA$ 100 billion, but does not yet offer our unique packaged accounts and tax service for small businesses.”

“We see a significant growth opportunity in Canada and couldn’t make a better start than with Rina Mancini. She brings extensive Board-level experience in the banking, credit management and financial services industry in Canada, but also has a strong understanding of the small business clients we serve, having spent the last seven years as a self-employed consultant, advising a range of firms on business development and financial planning issues and providing feasibility studies for new companies entering the Canadian market.”
