TAADaily Life of a Franchisee

You will be the principal of the business, networking, managing staff and meeting with clients.

The role of a TaxAssist franchisee is fundamentally business development, which is why we consider commercially experienced individuals as well as qualified accountants to become franchisees. In order to work on the business rather than in it, you must be able to build a team of staff to assist with work production.
