Certax is considered a major force in the Accountancy Sector. Their established network embodies quality and professionalism, which has led Certax to become one of the leading Independent Accountancy and Taxation Franchises.
Launched in September 1999, Certax Accounting has grown to produce a number of Professional Accountancy Practice Franchises across the UK.
There is no minimum qualification required to become a Certax Accountancy Franchisee, but you must have experience in the finance sector.
With Certax there is not any disadvantage in not being a qualified accountant. The unique benefit of belonging to the Certax Accountancy Franchise is that many of their Directors and technical advisors are indeed Professionally Qualified Accountants and Tax advisors, meaning that should a franchisee require the expertise of such a person – this can be arranged quickly.
However, the overwhelming majority of all the day-to-day activities carried out at home or in a busy high street accounting practice can be done by well-trained and supported franchisees without the need for any formal qualifications. Being a Certax Franchisee will lead to professional qualifications with the AFA or any other accounting bodies.
The Certax Accounting Franchise strives to provide franchisees with a positive return on their investment whilst creating and supporting peerless Accountancy and Tax Professionals. You will be provided with the best-in-class resources, enabling you to advise and help businesses, therefore, ensuring their success and profitability.
Certax aim to upskill suitable professionals in the disciplines required to set up and operate their Accounting Franchise. Combined with best-in-class, time saving software, this enables franchisees to comply with the day-to-day Accountancy and Tax requirements of small and medium-sized businesses.
The Certax Accountancy Franchise Model promotes efficiency. Therefore, franchisees can spend more time advising their clients on other financial aspects to make their business more profitable.
