The brand’s first Canadian master franchise agreement will bring its offering to the Great White North.
TaxAssist Accountants will soon be expanding into the Canadian market, after awarding the country’s master franchise rights to business process outsourcing company QX Global Group.
This news comes after last year’s big developments for TaxAssist Accountants, when the accountancy franchise brand first launched in the U.S. market.
The rights will cover the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, and the development is set to be headed by Niraj Mehta, senior VP of business operations at QX Global Group. Mehta is a qualified chartered accountant, with almost 20 years of experience in the industry.
“We are delighted to have awarded our Canadian master franchise rights to the internationally known and respected QX Global Group,” said Karl Sandall, chief executive director of The TaxAssist Group. “The team are all highly skilled individuals who share our passion and vision, which, combined with our 25 years’ experience in building and running a leading franchise network, bodes well for future success.”
QX Global Group are looking to acquire an existing account practice in Canada and convert it into a TaxAssist Accountants by April 2021, along with the launch of franchisee recruitment activity and discovery days.
“We are constantly exploring strategic opportunities where we can add value, and this partnership with The TaxAssist Group hits all the right buttons,” said Chris Robinson FCCA, executive chairman and founder of QX Global Group. “We look forward to building on our long-standing relationship with TaxAssist, and this investment is a natural progression to establish a new line of services in the North American region.
“Canada has one of the largest franchise industries in the world, and there are currently no businesses in Canada which are offering a uniquely-packaged accounts, tax, and advisory service dedicated to small businesses, so Canada represents a significant growth opportunity for the TaxAssist Accountants brand.”
