Accountancy franchise celebrates successful first year in Australia


TaxAssist Accountants celebrated the end of its first successful calendar year in Australia with a special open day in Sydney.

Karl Sandall, CEO of the TaxAssist Group, flew in from the UK to join Master Franchisee Terry Murphy, his Support Centre team and franchisees to mark the network’s first milestone.

The event was hosted by franchisee Colin Lua in his Sydney shop – the newest addition to the network – and generated much interest among the local business community, as well as those interested in becoming part of this latest chapter in the TaxAssist success story.

Since the launch of TaxAssist Accountants’ Australian network in March 2016, Terry and his team have recruited three franchisees, including opening two shops and the conversion of Terry’s existing four offices to TaxAssist Accountants. 

Karl said: “It was a pleasure to catch up with Terry and meet franchisees Colin Lua, Avendra Narayan and Panbo Ye, who are all based around Sydney. We know – and have seen by the success of Panbo, Colin and Avendra – that there is huge potential for our franchisees in Australia. I would urge anyone interested in joining becoming part of our growing network in Australia to call Terry Murphy on 1800 625 429 to find out more.”

Terry Murphy added: “It was fantastic that Karl came over to meet with us all and shows his and TaxAssist’s commitment to our network in Australia. Having been at the helm of TaxAssist for more than 16 years, the experience and knowledge that Karl was able to share with us was both invaluable and inspiring.”

TaxAssist Accountants now operates from seven locations in Australia, including Sydney, Chatswood, Liverpool, Forster, Taree, Woolgoolga and Burleigh.
