There are many tax franchises and accountancy and bookkeeping franchises available in Australia including First Class Accounts, HR Block and MAS Tax Accountants.
Many tax franchises will not only focus on the preparation of tax returns but will also require the franchisee to do accounting, bookkeeping, financial management, BAS and PAYG returns, payrolls and business consulting. They will offer this service to individuals as well as businesses.
Whilst some franchises require no experience in the industry, most tax franchises will require some level of accountancy qualifications.
Tax franchises are becoming more popular due to the increasing number of people starting their own business and the time constraints that many have preventing them from doing their own taxes. By getting someone else to do the taxes, tax franchise owners take away the stress, confusion and time constraints involved. They give clients reassurance that the tax returns are accurate and offer additional specialized advice.
