Small business tax and accountancy specialists TaxAssist Accountants is celebrating five years of success for their Republic of Ireland (ROI) operation, having established their pilot shop front and support centre in Dublin in 2009.
Greg Murphy, a Certified Accountant, and Roddy Comyn, a Chartered Accountant, were awarded TaxAssist’s Master Franchise Licence for the ROI five years ago, and have since built strongly, seeing the franchise go from strength-to-strength.
The event was celebrated at their Annual Conference at Dublin’s Morrison Hotel, and attended by members of the company’s 26-strong franchisee network. As well as being a motivational and informative event for franchisees and staff alike, the top performers also received awards to mark their efforts during the last year.
Last year was largely a picture of fantastic growth in numbers in the Republic. During the operation’s five years, TaxAssist Ireland have successfully built a client-base in excess of 5,000, but more importantly, have also exceeded the €5,000,000 fee bank-mark.
Greg Murphy commented: “Prior to joining TaxAssist Accountants myself, and Roddy were partners in a local practice in the Fairview region of Dublin. Whilst the practice was successful in its own right, we were both ambitious and wanted to develop a national brand across Ireland.
“TaxAssist offered a distinctive brand and clear approach to marketing and it was one we were sure would work well in Ireland, even in a recession – as has been proven right. Where the franchise model adds value is the strength of the brand and the high visibility of the shop-front premises.
“As a Master Franchisor, I have been given the tools, support and experience I need from TaxAssist UK to make the business successful in Ireland. I think that TaxAssist Ireland is a great blueprint of how the franchise model can work in other countries. We’ve all very much enjoyed building the brand over the last five years. Here’s to the next 5 years of success and more!”
