Rosemary Franchise was recommended by one of my friends who is a CIMA qualified himself as he had done a lot of research already. Also when I met people at Rosemary, I felt that I could be a part of the Rosemary family and I will never feel left out and I feel proud to be a part of Rosemary Franchise.

I had been an accountant in industry for over 15 years with roles in sectors covering Retail, Insurance and Financial Services. The best part about all my roles was helping people to make sense of their numbers. I have a young family so my hobbies and interests tend to centre around them at the moment! I have a beautiful black Labrador who loves long hilly walks across Shropshire.

Your Clients

Many Rosemary clients are owner-managed, typically with fewer than 10 employees, and of all industry types.

They are generally too small to justify employing their own bookkeeper but generate too many financial transactions to manage themselves. They also have justifiable concerns regarding compliance in terms of VAT and/or HMRC. Basically, there is not enough work to employ someone but too much for the business owner to manage themselves.

How do I get clients?

By following our proven model and applying the activities that have been built into your personal integrated marketing communications plan, and applying the knowledge you have learnt from your launch training, you will gain your clients. This activity will be from varied sources, from traditional methods with face-to-face events and meetings, to more current methods in terms of social media and online advertising.

The Bookkeeping (Financial) Market

You may be wondering if there is a market for it?

Absolutely – over 4 million businesses in the UK need this service and according to the Federation of Small Businesses over 98% of businesses are defined as small businesses.

Why there is a strong demand:

  • Inaccuracies cost money (up to £5K fines)
  • Accountants charge more
  • Time value (not a key skill of the business)
  • Costly bookkeeping packages
  • Little support – who checks the quality?
  • Takes up time that they could be spending growing their business.

By law, all businesses in the UK are required to keep records of their transactions which are later used by an accountant to file for tax and often VAT. Managing these transactions through efficient bookkeeping is often a drain on a small business owner’s time. Our service gives the business owner back time, to focus on running their business

What You Need

As well as a love for numbers, to be a successful Rosemary Bookkeeping business owner, you will need discipline to follow a proven business model, and the drive and ambition to prosper in a competitive market.

Communication and organisation skills are essential in building a loyal client base. Our most successful franchisees possess these skills in abundance.

As experience is not necessary, you will need to be open to learning about your new vocation to build up your sector, brand and business knowledge.

The Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise is a full-time commitment, as such, you’ll need to dedicate much of your time to the business in the early days, to build a solid structure to foster a strong culture for growth.

With up to 100% finance available to many (subject to status), financing your new venture could not be more affordable. You do need to be financially secure whilst your business finds its feet in the early days, meaning that you can reap the financial benefits in the future.
