I’ve been made from my job as an account and I’m looking for an accountancy or bookkeeping franchise. How do I know which is the best one to choose?
There are many good bookkeeping franchises in Australia. A good starting point for you is to visit the Franchise Council of Australia’s website and research those members who are in the bookkeeping industry.
There is no best franchise. It all depends on what you are looking for and which is the right one for you. Remember franchising isn’t for everyone and so you need to initially make sure that you fully understand franchising, what it entails and if it is the right route into business start-up/employment for you.
Once you have decided that franchising is for you, you need to carefully evaluate all the bookkeeping franchise opportunities you are interested in. Once you have a shortlist and wish to know more about the franchise(s), you can meet with the franchisor(s). This is a two-way interview process, you need to be right for them, and them as equally right for you.
Our website is packed with lots of information and advice on starting a franchise, and it includes a list of questions that may be helpful for you when meeting with the franchisor.
