TaxAssist Accountants’ franchisee for the Galston and Kilmarnock regions is celebrating two decades of business ownership. 

Barry McGougan launched his bookkeeping and accounting franchise unit near his home in Galston, West Scotland, back in 2001 and is now marking 20 years as a franchisee. His daughter, Lisa Foster, has joined the business and is looking forward to taking it on later this year when Barry retires. 

The long-serving franchisee explained,

“When I look back to 2001, starting out as a fresh faced 47-year-old, I would have found it hard to imagine that I would, in 2021, be running such a successful business and looking forward to a well-earned and comfortable retirement in the near future.

“Getting to where I am now has required hard work and commitment and the patience and support of my family. But the fact that the practice has grown so well is testament to the proven business model provided by TaxAssist.”

With the help of Lisa and two other staff members, Barry runs two TaxAssist Accountants stores in Galston and Kilmarnock, and has built up a 350-strong client base. To mark the impressive milestone, the franchise sent Barry a champagne presentation case. 

Barry praised TaxAssist Accountants’ business model: 

“My experience has been, and continues to be, a positive one and TaxAssist, through their ongoing training and support, have truly ‘walked the talk’. If you follow the model with hard work and dedication to make the business what you want it to be, it will provide you with the lifestyle you want.” 

He added,

“I’ve made some good friends in the network and in Norwich, and I shall forever be glad I joined the franchise.”

If you’re interested in becoming a TaxAssist Accountants franchisee and walking in Barry’s footsteps, you should book a place on one of the business’s virtual discovery days. Just call 0800 0188297 to register your interest.
