Accountants247 provides you with the franchise opportunity to start and operate your own accountancy franchise in your chosen area, with the full support and expertise from its highly experienced head office team.
You do not need to be an accountant or have practical experience as this is not a hands-on accountancy business. You will be meeting customers, providing quotations, managing their service and conducting follow-ups to ensure your customers are satisfied and the jobs run smoothly.
Accountants247 is the expert when it comes to accountancy services for individuals and small- to medium-sized businesses at an affordable cost. It offers a high-quality accountancy experience service its clients trust at a price they can afford.
How does the Accountants247 franchise model work?
Accountants247 has developed an innovative business model that allows franchisees to focus on a lucrative market of potential clients. The model is straightforward – take on hundreds of small business clients with relatively uncomplicated accounting, tax and advisory work while being based in visible, accessible and welcoming shop front premises.
Accountants247 recognises the changing marketplace for accountants and with its target market being the small business sector, it is vital that franchisees can relate to them in a way that is not intimidating.
When the first ‘shop front’ in Frodsham was created, the main intentions were to have a modern, welcoming, branded office with the aim of departing from the look and characteristics of traditional accountancy practices.
Visibility, credibility, walk-in business and brand reinforcement are just a few of the benefits that operating from shop-front premises brings. In addition to this, having a visible presence within the business community helps to integrate your marketing activities and increase effectiveness.
By servicing the accounting needs of small businesses, subcontractors and the self-employed, as a franchisee you can focus on a group of clients who have traditionally been neglected.
Concentrating on the needs of small business clients can offer time-management advantages and through Accountants247’s training and judicious use of its support functions, you can also provide first-class services to your client base.
Your role will primarily consist of:
• Being the principal of the business
• Business development
• Marketing your practice
• Managing staff
• Customer service
• Practice management and profitability
• Custodian of the brand in your territory.
How much does an Accountants247 franchise cost?
The franchise fee is £9,999, and there is government-led funding for up to 100 per cent of the fee. Included in this fee is everything you need to hit the ground running with your new business.
What do you get for your franchise investment in Accountants247?

What training and support does Accountants247 provide its franchisees?
There are four Accountants247 training courses spread throughout the year. There will be due diligence, business plans, registrations and possibly raising finance to undertake before joining Accountants247, so fill in the enquiry form on this page if you are interested in working towards any of these courses. This will give you plenty of time to prepare and Accountants247 the time to assist you.
The courses last for six weeks, with a week’s home study in week four. For those whom Accountants247 feels it would be beneficial, it requires them to attend a two-day introduction to bookkeeping course ahead of the six-week training course. Accountants247 determines this by asking franchisees to complete an online assessment, although you are welcome to attend the introductory days even if the assessment suggests you may not benefit.
Due to COVID-19, Accountants247 will be running these courses virtually for the immediate future.
By the end of the initial training provided by Accountants247, you will know how to:
• Market yourself, recruit and retain your clients
• Competently complete year-end and monthly/quarterly accounts and tax computations
• Complete self-assessment tax returns and various other tax forms
• Operate bookkeeping and VAT software and be able to advise your clients
• Run an efficient shopfront office and business with the support of IT, marketing and eventually staff.
In short – how to run and grow a successful business.
Accountants247’s dedicated support team will help you through every stage of your shop move to help you to complete your move in the most efficient and convenient way possible. It will walk you through everything from finding the right premises, negotiating your lease and planning permission through to refurbishment, staffing advice and holding your launch event.
Each Accountants247 shop is formally approved at a site visit, by the business development team at the support centre, to ensure that the shop is in the right location and will have the desired impact.
Accountants247 offers franchisees extensive technical support. The technical helpdesk is staffed by qualified accountants and experienced support staff covering bookkeeping, accounts, tax, VAT, payroll, National Insurance and tax investigation and software. In the early days of operation, this backup will be invaluable, and the continuing help and advice will benefit your practice as you take on staff who are also entitled to use their help.
What locations or territories is Accountants247 looking to operate in?
