The Accounting Industry

The Accounting Industry is a wide and varied place. From huge global companies to sole proprietors.

The accounting market is typically dominated by the Big Four global accounting firms – Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), Deloitte & Touche, KPMG and Ernst & Young. Beyond the Big Four there are many mid-tier accounting firms, among which there are some substantial practices. Small accounting practices are numerous and this sub-sector comprises mainly of small partnerships and sole proprietors.

Accountancy Age perform an Annual Top 50 survey which TaxAssist Accountants first entered at number 34 back in 2010. The recession has meant that the market has remained challenging, however, we continue to build on our remarkable success year on year and TaxAssist currently occupies 21st position in the league. Our brand name is well-established in the UK, Ireland and Australia, and known for breaking with tradition, challenging the market and daring to be different in an industry that has not experienced this before.

We've achieved success through acknowledging and harnessing the power of the internet, creating unique and powerful business-to-business relationships and launching bricks and mortar retail presences. We embrace marketing and when the competition cut back or stopped their activities, we increased our spend in promoting the network.

Through our expansion into Canada we intend to replicate our successful franchise model by creating a network of TaxAssist Accountants shops and offices in the Canadian market.
