Testimonial from Niraj Mehta, Senior Vice President of Business Operations at QX Global Group

“It gives us immense pleasure to be part of the TaxAssist network, as a Master Franchisee to run the professional franchisee network in Canada.

The TaxAssist Group is very well managed by their Group CEO, Mr Karl Sandall, who as a visionary leader has built a robust franchise network of 270+ Franchisees across the globe since 1995. He is backed by an excellent board who collectively have 200+ years of experience in the finance domain.

They have built a strong support team to uplift the franchisees globally – all support team members have rich experience in their respective business functions. The primary goal of the TaxAssist group is the growth of their franchisees, and they are committed to it. They have been instrumental in guiding us to set up the franchisee network in Canada over the last 12 months.

Here, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the entire TaxAssist Board & Support team for their unwavering support. I would especially single out Karl Sandall, David Paulson, Richard Chatten-Hague, and James Mattam for being our guiding force. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with them and are looking forward to further strengthening our relations.”

Niraj Mehta, Senior Vice President of Business Operations at QX Global Group.

Franchising in Canada

Canada has one of the largest franchise industries in the world. According to the Canadian Franchise Association's 2018 Accomplishments Report, as of 2017:

  • The Canadian franchise sector generated $96 billion, almost 5% of the Canadian economy
  • 75,245 franchised units
  • $61.2 billion on household wages
  • 1.85 million people employed by the franchise sector
  • The business services and real estate sectors generated over $18billion
  • Canadian franchising generates 6.4% of federal taxes collected and the collective Canadian franchise industry ranks 12th among the largest industry sectors in Canada

The franchise opportunity

Having proven that the concept can be successfully replicated in the UK, Ireland and Australia, and that ongoing training and consultancy support can be given to overseas operations, TaxAssist is in a position to be able to offer single unit franchise territories across Canada.

There are currently no businesses in Canada which are offering a unique-packaged accounts, tax and advisory service for small businesses. This is why we believe the target market for TaxAssist Accountants is significant, giving us a unique opportunity through our global network, to provide services to this traditionally under-served market. 

Our business model will appeal to CPA-qualified accountants working in industry, full-time tax preparers looking to scale up their business, as well as those that already own an accounting or tax practice they wish to develop as part of a global brand.
