Case studies

What our Franchisees say about us

Olusegun Kazim, Certax Accounting (Basingstoke) & Certax Accounting (Newbury)

"A Certax franchise has the potential to be developed to a size that you want - be that a one-man band or a multi-unit business with a number of employees. The work is enjoyable and success is achievable if you're prepared to put the work in. I now have two offices based in Basingstoke and Newbury and the success really has exceeded my expectations”

Phil Preedy, Certax Accounting (Richmond upon Thames)

I found the training excellent and was one of the main reasons for choosing to become a Certax franchisee.
The other important aspect was the level of support provided by the Technical Helpline, which is also exceptional - It is reassuring to know that they are on the other end of the phone when needed.

Cengiz Yildiz, Certax Accounting (Palmers Green)

"I have been a Certax Accounting Franchisee for nearly six years and my results during this time have exceeded all my expectations in terms of turnover, client numbers and profitability. Although the training course is very comprehensive I could not have achieved these results without the Certax Technical Support line. Because of this I was able to deal with virtually any kind of business client, small, large, limited company or non-limited company and all their corresponding tax issues and at the end of the day build a profitable practice for myself."

Jie Bateman, Certax Accounting (Aberdeen)
