The conference was followed by an evening dinner and entertainment, with all the franchisees and their families invited.
Mandy said: “The conference went really well, and I’ve had some really positive feedback from everyone who attended.
“The fantastic line up of speakers gave franchisees the opportunity to explore technology, processes and services and to ensure their practices are business fit to continue to help small to medium businesses. It also provoked thought and shared discussion on additional business opportunities and services that can increase revenue and help to grow TaxAssist practices.
“It was the first opportunity we’d had to bring everyone together since before Covid, and I’d like to thank the Support Team who did an excellent job in helping me to organise and deliver such a successful event.”
With franchisees in Western Australia, Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales, TaxAssist is looking to grow its network further in Australia. If you share a passion to help your local small businesses, a TaxAssist franchise can provide the systems and support you need to be successful.
The opportunity will appeal to qualified accountants working in industry, tax preparers looking to scale up their business, individuals with an accountancy or law degree or diploma, as well as those that already own an accounting or tax practice they wish to develop as part of a global brand.
