White-collar accountancy franchise, TaxAssist Accountants has been named the Best Large Franchisor of the Year 2012.

The franchise was given this accolade at an awards ceremony organised by Smith & Henderson and supported by Lloyds TSB. At the event the accountancy franchise was also named Best Training and Support provider for the second year running.

The winners of these awards were selected based on feedback from over 2,000 franchise owners, gathered through an industry-wide study of franchise owner satisfaction.

Sarah Robertson, Business Development Director of TaxAssist Accountants, said: “We are thrilled to have won these two prestigious awards ahead of the likes of McDonald’s and ActionCoach who were strong contenders. The awards recognise the strength of our business model and the support we give to our franchise owners, both of which we pride ourselves on.”

Richard Holden, Head of Franchising at Lloyds TSB Commercial and sponsors of the awards initiative, said: “The UK franchise market continues to display strong growth, reflected in the shortlisted nominees, and plays a vital part in the UK economy.”
