Pros & Cons of Joining a Franchise

June 29, 2017

Joining a franchise can be a quick way to set up your own business without starting from scratch. There are many positives but it would be unwise to embark on a long term relationship with a company without being fully aware of 'both sides of the coin'. At The Financial Management Centre we encourage anyone looking at our franchise to consider everything very carefully. It's quite possible to view each 'limitation' as an opportunity. We want the very best franchisees because we believe we offer the very best service to TFMCentre clients.

What our clients say

TFMC Bexley became our accountants and bookkeepers two years ago after our previous accountant retired, having been recommended by our computer consultant. They have prepared our books professionally. Because I am out of the country on business often, we are in the in the process of migrating to an online accounting package recommended by Geoffrey, so that I can the books anywhere I happen to be. We are very pleased with their proactive and professional service.

A client of our Bexley office

Eleanor - Culturati Ltd

Having been recommended Brian Johnstone of The Financial Management Centre by our accountants, we met with him and explained what our business required. By working closely with our administration team and accountants, Brian has put together a book-keeping service which assists the financial management of our business, giving a cost-effective alternative to employing our own accounts staff.

A client of our Horsham office

Lynn Newman - Redwood Financial Advisers Limited

Dear Nichole, I just want to express my appreciation for the excellent work you carried on behalf of Creative Installations Ltd. Bookkeeping and accountancy work are always at the bottom of my list when it comes to working in the office and as a result get left until the last minute and this year was no exception. So with HMRC and Companies House breathing down my neck I asked if you could come to the rescue. Well you did! And not only did you prepare and submit my accounts in such a short period of time you were also over £1000,00 cheaper than my previous accounts. I found using you and your services extremely helpful and efficient and would have no hesitation...

David Crossley - Creative Installations

Following the success of the relationship of our sister company CWJ Developments Ltd with the Wirral office of The Financial Management Centre we have decided to appoint the Wirral office as our accountants and advisers for this new start company. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.

Simon Jones - Director, Emergency Property Services UK Ltd

Dear Nichole, I would like to personally thank you for your company's customer service and professionalism, the staff at The Financial Management Centre are always friendly and helpful even when I leave things to the last moment. Your services are the most cost effective way I found to run our wages and would not have any hesitation recommending you to any of our clients or friends. Keep up the good work. Yours Sincerely
