Sunny Srai (Hampton), Sanjay Parekh (Wood Green) Gary Bugdale (Managing Director of TaxAssist Direct London Ltd), Jay Gosal (Coventry East) and Adnan Tahir (Glasgow) have all recently graduated from TaxAssist Accountants’ first Initial Training Course of 2020.
Having amassed nearly 20 years’ experience within Corporate Finance across various sectors, Sanjay Parekh realised he was confident in his abilities to generate financial success by running his own business. Having worked successfully as a financial consultant for the last five years, Sanjay was keen to change tack and use his wealth of experience to help small businesses. This triggered him to consider running his own accountancy practice via the franchising route.
“My ex-manager (now a franchisee) introduced me to TaxAssist. I did some research, signed up for the Discovery Day and my experience has been positive from that moment on,” explained Sanjay.
“I have found the network very transparent, truthful, supportive and nurturing. Having completed the training during the COVID-19 outbreak would have been even more daunting if I was not part of a reputable brand such as TaxAssist, which boasts a knowledgeable and diligent back-office support function – which is the backbone of franchisees’ success.
“I am excited to start trading, and I am confident I will ride the current wave and come out successful on the other side due to the brand backing me.”
Karl Sandall, Group Chief Executive Director, said: “It was a pleasure to train and socialise with our new fantastic group of franchisees and the team at our Support Centre are looking forward to helping them grow their practices.
“These are unprecedented times, but franchisees know they have the back-up and support of a dedicated team of over 60 staff at the Support Centre on hand to help, guide and advise them and their clients. They also know that their services are very much in demand, as small businesses look to their accountant as never before for help and guidance through the uncertain months ahead.”
