On the day The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, delivered his second Budget on 3rd March, TaxAssist Accountants was pleased to provide its franchisees with personalised versions of the Budget 2021 material to share and communicate with clients, prospects and business referral contacts.
This included a summary highlighting the announcements that will affect businesses and the self-employed, and an e-mail newsletter to its clients.
The latter was personalised for franchisees’ individual websites enabling them to share with their clients the changes pertinent to their businesses just hours after the Budget was delivered.
During the day, the Support Centre team posted live updates to the @TaxAssistUK Twitter, as well as posts on the national Facebook and LinkedIn accounts. The centralised mailing system meant franchisees were able to benefit from the Support Centre sharing the Budget Summary and Highlights to franchisees’ Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn Business Pages and personal profiles on their behalf.
Over the next few days, the Support Centre will be posting the following Budget-related stories, all housed in the Budget Reports Hub, across franchisees’ social media profiles and pages:
- Furlough scheme extended until the end of September
- Budget 2021: Self-Employment Income Support Scheme extended
- New Recovery Loan Scheme set to launch in April
TaxAssist Accountants will be also be running a client facing webinar covering all of the key topics announced in the Budget, which will be hosted by Daren Moore FCCA, Group Commercial Director and Andy Gibbs FCCA, Group Technical Manager on Tuesday 9th March 2021.
James Mattam, Group Business Development Director, said: “The Support Centre team pulled out all the stops to ensure we delivered bespoke Budget commentary in a timely and efficient manner for the benefit of both the accountants in our network and their clients. This Budget was hugely important for business owners across the UK to understand how the Government is going to support them as we come out of lockdown and get the economy firing on all cylinders once again.
“We emailed the Budget summary to over 77,000 clients on behalf of franchisees, leaving them free to concentrate on running their practices – one of the many beneficial services we offer to our network of accountants. The accountants and tax experts in the TaxAssist Support Centre who have put together all of the Budget content are digesting the deeper details released by The Chancellor and will present a webinar to franchisees this week to support them with many new updates we all need to be aware of, in order to advise clients of the changes that affect their businesses.”
