Many accountants and aspiring accountants would like to have their own accounting firm one day. Working for yourself and being your own boss is a very appealing idea. No more pressure on you from someone else, and you can pick your own hours. Add to that, many business owners seem to report more job satisfaction than employees of an accounting firm.
However, starting your own accounting firm from scratch is not an easy task. It could take some time to become a profitable business. You will need to build up a customer base, hire marketing experts and other consultancies to help you become a household name in accounting. The insecurity and the risk that comes with owning your own accounting firm can be too much, so it’s not for everyone.
Luckily, there is a business model that allows you to run your own business, but without the insecurities of owning your own accounting firm; an accounting firm franchise. At the Financial Management Centre, we offer accounting firm franchises in the United Kingdom.
Running a franchise has become a popular business model in recent years. The reason for this is that running an accounting firm franchise can be just as rewarding as owning your own business, but you have an added layer of security and an established company name. Imagine having the luck of an existing client base and marketing materials before you have even started!
In the franchising business, there is a proverb often used to demonstrate the attitude in the business: ”You’re in business for yourself, but not by yourself.” The support from the head office and the main franchise network is vital in making the most out of your franchise.
The Financial Management Centre offers a high standard of support if you wish to run your own accounting firm franchise. The start-up prices are competitive, and we offer a lot of additional extra’s like Marketing services for your franchise and full training. We encourage collaboration between franchisees, and there is a solid support structure in place. Add to that, a bespoke Customer Relationship Management system where you can keep track of your customers and benchmarking you against other franchisees on a regular basis to give you some pointers on how to become more effective.
