Property Information

Facilities:

Both locations are at the opposite ends of the territory, one in the center of the city in a professionally build out office location and the other in a community shopping center big box store prominently placed to attract customers.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

Services could be expanded beyond the seasonal tax time to other accounting or bookkeeping services and tax planning. According to Franchise Help Industry Reports, tax preparation is BIG business – there were 300k people employed at 109k firms in 2012 - generating $9 billion in revenue in 2012. The industry grew over 2% from 2010-2015, and is expected to speed up the pace of growth. Revenues of $11 billion are forecast for 2018. Tax preparation is unusual in that it provides a service to assist with a process that legally every American is required to do; submit an income tax return. Because it is required, tax preparation tends to be recession resistant. The industry, including other accounting services, is expected to grow by 4 percent per year through at least 2018.

Competition:

There is only one other franchise that would be competition and it is within a half mile from one location and 4 miles from the other.

Reason for selling:

Owner focusing on full time business.

Support & Training:

You do not need to be a CPA, or possess prior tax industry experience to be a franchisee. If you have strong business acumen and the financial wherewithal to expand your business you can be successful.
