Introducing Hanaa Raydan and Ahmad Aboul-Hosn, the new owners of Rosemary Bookkeeping Wembley. 

Rosemary Bookkeeping is bringing its expert bookkeeping services to Wembley and the surrounding areas for the first time under the expert supervision of Hanaa Raydan and the support of her business partner Ahmad Aboul-Hosn.

We sat down with Hanna and Ahmad to discuss their new adventure and why they invested in a Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise business.


Who are Hanaa and Ahmad?

The business partners are keen entrepreneurs with experience living and working in North London’s thriving business community.

A mother of three girls and the holder of multiple qualifications in business development, accounting and bookkeeping, Hanaa has wanted to own and operate her own bookkeeping business for many years.

After working as a part-time bookkeeper since 2015, she has finally achieved her dream of supporting her local community with the support of a trusted and expert brand behind her, alongside her business partner.

Ahmad Aboul-Hosn is a local entrepreneur who has lived and worked in the Golders Green area for over fifteen years.

He is a father of two boys and loves spending time with them, his dog, and cycling when he is not growing and nurturing his businesses.

It is in the shipping franchise business that Ahmad owns that his and Hanaa’s work overlapped, as she worked within this business while working as a treasurer for a local charity.

Ahmad is passionate about the businesses in the Wembley area and, having studied bookkeeping is excited to help support Hanaa as part of Rosemary Bookkeeping Wembley.

With his existing knowledge and experience in franchising, Ahmad encouraged Hanaa to follow her dream of owning a bookkeeping business using a franchise model to gain the support of a renowned franchisor and nationwide franchise network.


The benefits of a Rosemary Bookkeeping business

With a Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise, Hanaa says she has the support and expertise to succeed in business by building upon her existing knowledge and specialism.

She is excited to grow alongside her clients and business partner and support the community where she has lived and worked for a long time.

With Rosemary, she says, “I can make connections with the community while providing services in a professional way.”

Hanaa has been prepared to hit the ground running with her two-week training academy at the ServiceMaster franchise support centre, helping her set up her business and providing varied support from operations to sales and marketing.

The process, she adds, was easy and straightforward, thanks to taking everything step by step with “advice from experts who knew what they were talking about.”

 “I didn’t think it would be that easy!” she says.

“You find yourself in a rhythm of doing tasks bit by bit, and before you know it, you’re ready to go!”

With the business now open and providing support to clients in the Wembley area, Hanaa is excited to deliver quality and consistent bookkeeping services to her clients in the short term, with the goal of expanding her territory within the next five years.

Yasmin Chaudhari, Senior Marketing Executive and Marketing Manager for Rosemary Bookkeeping, says:

“I’d like to personally welcome Hanaa and Ahmad to our ever-growing Rosemary Bookkeeping network.

This is a really exciting time for the brand and Hanaa and Ahmad in particular as we look to extend our services to businesses within the locality of Wembley.

Their experience and business mindset make her a great addition to the network of franchise partners, and we look forward to supporting her as she grows her business in the years to come.”

Meet Zoe Barnard-Rowland, the brand-new owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping in Exeter.

Rosemary Bookkeeping Exeter is now under the new and expert supervision of Zoe Barnard-Rowland, an FCCA-qualified accountant with over 25 years of experience working for over 30 companies, optimising their bookkeeping processes.

We sat down with Zoe to discuss her new adventure and why she chose to purchase Rosemary Bookkeeping Exeter.


Background

During her 25 years in accounts, Zoe has worked her way up by working long-term and in temp positions for different companies, gaining experience and qualifications as she went.

Having worked in multiple sectors, from insurance to energy supply, media and home care, in roles from accounts assistant to financial controller, Zoe says she has “seen pretty much every financial system that’s going.”

While working across sectors, she became adept at identifying these packages, picking them up quickly, identifying similarities to other packages and taking that information forward to streamline processes for the companies she’s worked for.


Why Rosemary Bookkeeping?

Taking over from the previous owner, Zoe takes on an existing client base alongside supporting new small business owners who want support with their bookkeeping to grow their business or streamline their processes.

Zoe came to Rosemary Bookkeeping after taking redundancy from her previous company in 2023.

Realising she was at a crossroads, she decided to take the opportunity to branch out, invest in herself, and use her redundancy package to purchase her franchise.

Initially, she was unsure of where to start but knew a franchise model would give her the support she needed to go into business for herself.

“I can do bookkeeping with my eyes closed,” she says. “But having franchise support makes the fresh start less daunting.”

Having looked at different opportunities, Zoe decided Rosemary was perfect for her because of the amount of head office support the brand offers – allowing her to be her own boss while still being part of a company and community of like-minded business owners.

“If there is someone responsible for marketing, legal or HR, and are there as your main point of contact, it gives you that comfort and backing,” she says.

Now, what was daunting has been made easy with the right franchise.


Aspirations

Zoe is now excited to be her own boss and grow alongside the business (which she says she plans to expand once she has found her feet) and her husband, who will support her with data entry.

“At the moment, Lee is excited about bookkeeping. I’m excited about checking his work,” she jokes.


Want to be your own boss with a bookkeeping franchise?

Sarah Connop, owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Shrewsbury and Telford, shares her experience as a Rosemary Bookkeeping Franchisee.

Rosemary Bookkeeping is one of the UK’s only bookkeeping franchises.

Our business owners work for themselves but not by themselves to deliver personalised and expert bookkeeping services to commercial clients and small business owners nationwide.


About Sarah Connop

Sarah Connop opened her Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise, Rosemary Bookkeeping Shrewsbury and Telford, in September 2021, having been an accountant for over 15 years in various sectors, including retail, insurance, and financial services.

Due to her passion for numbers and helping people, Sarah said she loved these roles as they allowed her to help people make sense of their numbers.


Why did Sarah join Rosemary Bookkeeping?

As the mother to a young family and a Labrador who loves long hilly walks across Shropshire, Sarah wanted a business that would utilise her experience and let her be in charge of her time and future.

This meant that when she found out about Rosemary Bookkeeping through a close friend who was part of our network, it was a natural fit for her, as she “wanted to do something I was proud of and to support [her] local thriving small business community, with the flexibility of being there for [her] children.”

Furthermore, she was attracted to the Rosemary model because “Rosemary was highly recommended by its franchise owners.”

“I was attracted to the level of support offered by the head office and fellow franchise owners,” she says.


How’s it going?

Even opening her business in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sarah hasn’t been held back.

Sarah has used the tried and tested Rosemary model, which grants business owners the unique opportunity to achieve an attractive turnover based on recurring income from loyal clients.

Sarah has achieved more than 200% growth from year one to year two and is on track to achieve a minimum of 33% growth from year two to year three!

Thrilled with her progress and aiming to grow the business by 40% each year, Sarah says she is overjoyed with what she has achieved in her business.

“I have been able to successfully start the business, run the business, and be there for family more, which is everything I had hoped for,” she says.


Words of advice

As a thriving Rosemary Bookkeeping franchisee, Sarah has some advice for anyone looking to start a new business:

“It can be daunting and hard work owning your own business,” she says, “but the rewards of being own your boss and being in control of your future are worth it!”

“Do your research into the local community to ensure there are plenty of opportunities for bookkeepers. For example, I knew Shrewsbury had a thriving small business community.”

Nirmal Thakkar, owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Garden City, shares her experience as a Rosemary Bookkeeping Franchisee.

Rosemary Bookkeeping is one of the UK’s only bookkeeping franchises.

Our business owners work for themselves but not by themselves to deliver personalised and expert bookkeeping services to commercial clients and small business owners nationwide.

Nirmal Thakkar opened her Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise, Rosemary Bookkeeping Garden City, in July 2022 after the brand was recommended by a friend who is a CIMA-qualified accountant.

Upon having a brand intro call with ServiceMaster Brands UK Franchise Sales, Nirmal was sure she and Rosemary were a perfect match.

“When I met people at Rosemary, I felt that I could be a part of the family, and I will never feel left out.”

“I feel proud to be a part of the Rosemary Franchise,” she says.


Who is Nirmal Thakkar?

With a Master’s in Business Administration and having worked in the financial industry for about 15 years, and as part of a family of accountants, Nirmal supports her clients with years of knowledge and experience.

“My husband is a Financial Director of his property-based company in the UK. He is an accountant. All the men in my family are accountants.”

“Bookkeeping runs in my blood,” she says.

As a mum in a family of four, Nirmal balances her responsibilities as a Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise owner, mother, and committee member of her local Indian Cultural Association, which includes planning events and cultural activities throughout the year like Holi, Diwali and Navratri.


Why Rosemary Bookkeeping?

As a busy, family-oriented businesswoman who is entrenched in her local community, Nirmal chose Rosemary Bookkeeping to “work for [herself] and have control of [her] work-life balance.”

Franchisees like Nirmal also benefit from being part of a trusted brand, a nationwide network of bookkeepers, and a centralised and dedicated franchisor support team that helps with queries, best practices, sales, marketing, and operations.

The tried and tested Rosemary Bookkeeping model ensures they are on track to succeed in all they do – with the unique opportunity to achieve a turnover of £135,000 in just five years, based on an average commercial job value of £2,100 pa.


The Rosemary Bookkeeping Experience

Nirmal says the fundamentals of running a successful Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise have been to take small steps and work to her strengths.

“My people skills have [seen] me achieve success,” she says. Having also received esteem for her interpersonal skills, Nirmal knows that she can use this to her advantage when faced with the things she finds harder – like aspects of marketing.

“Face-to-face marketing helps a lot, as it shows your confidence and commitment in what you do, and the business owners can feel the same,” she says.


Words of advice

She says this commitment is what will enable your success as a franchisee.

“No matter who you are and what you have done, your commitment will make you successful.”

“If you are ready to work for yourselves and are passionate about your business, you will always succeed.”

Buy small and save big

As a small business, you may encounter poor economies of scale. Not as a franchisee!

Furthermore, we encourage our networks to tell us what they’d like to see in the warehouse so that we can buy it in bulk and pass the savings of doing so back to you.

Turn the corner using a proven franchise business model. 

A franchise is the perfect route if you want to be in business for yourself but not by yourself.

They offer the benefit of an established brand, a proven business model and support in the areas where you need it.

There are almost 48,000 franchise businesses in the UK, and many brands to choose from.

But this much choice can be a little daunting. Analysis paralysis is real. It’s so easy to get caught in its safety net.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a few pointers to help set you on your way to breaking free from the 9-5.

Why are you looking at a franchise?

It’s important to know what your ‘why’ is. Why do you want to go into business?

Here are some common whys:

  • “I want to be my own boss.”
  • “I’ve noticed a gap in the market.”
  • “I can do it better than they do it.”
  • “I want a better lifestyle for my family.”
  • “I want to invest my redundancy/inheritance.”

Once you know why, it’s easier to find something suitable.

What are your options?

Your options are likely narrowed down by the available territory, cost, commitment, and credentials required to join.

Taking all of those into account, you’ll still find yourself with a lot of options. Choose the one most suited to your ‘why’.

Then, do your research.

Research  

Simply for ease, online research is the best place to start.

Methods of online franchise research:

  • Take a look at franchise directories
  • Read published franchise articles
  • Check associations like the BFA (British Franchise Association)
  • Visit franchisor websites
  • Follow social media channels for a broad and varied spectrum of opportunities.

For offline research, speak to franchisees and ask for advice from respected sources.

Where possible, utilise the franchise opportunities’ services for insight into the business.

Enquire & Engage

Once you have narrowed your search, enquire with the franchise brands that most suit your ‘why’.

Now is your opportunity to conduct more in-depth research and to form a relationship with the franchisor.

In franchising, relationships are the bread and butter. They make the world go around.

So, make sure it clicks. The business and the brand feel right for you to take advantage of the opportunity.

ServiceMaster Ltd. is committed to aiding your research, ensuring your decision to join us is right for you.

We sat down with ‘paperwork queen’ Karen Mann the new owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping North Dorset and Salisbury to discuss her new business.

From a young age, Karen Mann loved figures, paperwork, and numbers. She says when she was at school she always thought about being an accountant. But, as she tells me, during our sit-down following her completed induction academy to Rosemary Bookkeeping, life took a different path.

Prior Career

Karen has worked for a waste management company for the last 17 years. She began in their customer service department, but within nine months, had been promoted to running their accounts office.

As an office manager, Karen oversaw the operation of accounts and managed a team of 25 other people. So, when the Financial Director retired, she was well-prepared to take up the position of Company Director.

This entailed running all the accounts side of the business, handling all administration, and doing the management accounts to be sent to the company accountant.

This work has given Karen expert technical knowledge and a wealth of experience in management, as well as the ability to work alongside others and help them with things they have found difficult.

A skill which she knows stands her in great stead as a bookkeeper.

Finding Rosemary Bookkeeping

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, Karen decided that after 17 years in the same place, she wanted to do something on her own and start her own business.

“I had been working for the same company for 17 years and it felt like it was time to go and do something for myself.”

With her experience and love of figures, the path was clear to Karen:

“I thought, why not run my own bookkeeping company?”

However, all was not certain. Karen says that the one thing that always held her back from setting up her own business was the worry of coming across a problem that she had never encountered before and being unsure of how to help the client.

Then, whilst Karen was looking for jobs, she found Rosemary Bookkeeping. The possibility of joining a franchise eliminated this worry for Karen as she wouldn’t be in business alone.

“Coming across the franchise, I realised that that support network behind actually covers off that element. You’re never going to be on your own.

There’s never going to be something that you can’t find the answer to, somebody will always be able to either let you know or direct you to where to find it,” she says.

“If you’re on your own, it could take you hours of Googling or trying to phone through to ask people and not getting through to the right department, so you could end up costing yourself more money in time from trying to dig those issues out.

Whereas having the franchisor behind you who can direct you to the right place will save you hours of that trudging.”

So, Karen got in touch with our friendly franchise sales team.

“Reading through the website and reading on the BFA website about Rosemary and it just instantly felt like it was going to be a really good fit. It suited my personality and my experience and having a support network behind you gives you that reassurance.”

Getting started

With the support of a renowned nationwide franchisor behind her, Karen has finally been able to realise her dream of working for herself as a bookkeeper.

And she’s ready to go. Having completed her comprehensive Rosemary Bookkeeping training academy, Karen has been guided through the ins and outs of our franchise model and supported in setting up every aspect of her business, from marketing to sales, to operations.

“Doing the academy and starting to see how everything will work in practice has been really good I really enjoyed the whole thing,” she says.

“It is marrying up and I can see everything now slotting into place and how it’s all going to work.”

Launching her business today, she says that she is raring to get started helping customers and putting her love of bookkeeping to good use.

“I am a bit of a paperwork queen,” she says.

“I love paperwork, I love Excel, and figures are what I’m about. The whole of bookkeeping, I just love it.”

“I’m really looking forward to doing all of that and getting into the nitty gritty with customers and solving their issues and getting it all nice and straight for them.”

Could you be a bookkeeper?

Bookkeeping can be complex and time-consuming, but with the right support, it doesn’t have to be.

As a Rosemary Bookkeeper, you’ll provide a transparent and expert service in your local area, backed by a network of other experienced accountancy professionals.

If you’re looking for a change and think Rosemary Bookkeeping could be the right fit for you, get in touch with our franchise sales team today to book a discovery session and find out about available opportunities near you.

We sat down with Waqas Chughtai, the new owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Reading, to discuss why he decided to buy a Rosemary Bookkeeping Franchise.

Waqas Chughtai has had an extensive career working in accountancy and finance and is now adding another string to his bow by taking over as the owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Reading.

The business, which was previously run by Mike Wallace, has been placed in the capable hands of Waqas, following a sale earlier this year.

Prior Career

Waqas is no stranger to what it takes to run a small business. With many years of experience behind him in growing companies in the accountancy sector and undertaking multiple roles in his impressive career.

A senior and fellow member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, Waqas started his career at KPMG and has since grown his position and career in many companies including GO-ERP and Avanade, before starting his practice – WAC & Co. in 2012.

These saw him taking on many roles, as he grew to Finance Manager, Financial Controller, CFO, and ultimately a Finance Director position.

Waqas says he “Left [his] permanent role in 2012 because [he] always wanted to be in practice and managing [his] own business.”

During the initial phase of growing his business, Waqas worked part-time, simultaneously working with Evernote, a sister company of Microsoft.

“I contracted with them for a few years,” Waqas says. “[Working on] system implementation on the financial module side of things and consistently growing my practice in the background.”

Following the acquisition of a running practice called E-Accountants Ltd, Waqas’ services and expertise were able to expand further into accountancy. As such, he went full-time at his practice in 2017.

“We are now of reasonably good size,” Waqas says. “We have a back office as well as a couple of guys working here, a small team of seven or eight now.”

Though offering payroll and other accounting services through E-Accountants, Waqas wanted to expand further into bookkeeping.

“We were doing a bit of bookkeeping but not mostly bookkeeping clients,” he says.

Finding a Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise

Looking to expand, Waqas didn’t set out with the intention of looking into franchising but says that once he started looking, he began to see the clear benefits.

“You are part of a bigger group,” he says. “And it’s just an added peace-of-mind for a client [when] they’re dealing with someone who is part of a group rather than just a sole practitioner.”

Why Rosemary Bookkeeping?

As part of an extensive and reputable franchise network, our business owners are in charge of their businesses, but with the operational, marketing, and system-wide support of a national franchisor.

With a Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise, you can grow a thriving business, without being in it alone.

Backed by a network of like-minded professionals across the UK and an expert head office team, we ensure that you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

As Waqas says, the Rosemary model is,

“An established system that has worked for many.

For someone who is entering or starting up a new practice, it provides all of the basic and essential ingredients under one roof and provides the necessary training, staff, and material that you need to really kick start your business.”

Moving into the future

With his Rosemary Bookkeeping business, Waqas can achieve synergy throughout his practice and provide value-added services for new and existing clients of his, and of Rosemary Bookkeeping Reading.

With our current financial landscape shifting near-constantly, lots of small businesses up and down the UK are unsure of what their futures hold.

As a Rosemary Bookkeeping business owner, Waqas and the rest of our franchisees support and guide other small businesses through what may otherwise be confusing and turbulent waters.

“A lot is changing,” says Waqas.

“In regards to, let’s say, MTD. MTD was a very recent phenomenon. Larger companies are prepared for this because they have the forms and the talent to guide them.

But smaller businesses are confused as to how it affects them. So, [we want] to ensure that we are there to help them.”

Want to run your own business?

If, like Waqas, you want to support or start your own business by helping other small businesses with their bookkeeping, get in touch with us today.

We sat down with the brand-new owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Harrow – Nitin Patel – to talk about his career and training, being a scout leader, and his new bookkeeping business.

Allow us to introduce the newest member of the Rosemary Bookkeeping network, Nitin Patel, who is joining us as the owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Harrow, bringing our signature, friendly bookkeeping experience to the Harrow area. Having completed his training academy with us in June, allowing him to get acquainted with our brand and processes, Nitin is now poised and ready to begin helping clients in his local area. Joining the Rosemary Bookkeeping network as an ACCA graduate of almost 30 years, Nitin has an extensive career history working in finance for well-known companies like GSK (formerly GlaxoSmithKline), Sainsbury’s and the BBC.

When his previous role became redundant, Nitin knew that he wanted to use his financing experience to make a change. Though he knew finance like the back of his hand, Nitin says he had “never been an entrepreneur”. So, whilst he wanted to start his own business, he had not done sales or marketing before and wanted to work as part of a franchise business in order to receive some additional support to cover this. He looked to franchising for that support and found Rosemary Bookkeeping, and after chatting to our Brand Leader Nina Skoczόłek and Emma Chappel from our friendly franchise recruitment team, Nitin says that he felt comfortable and reassured by the friendly and professional environment created at Rosemary and ServiceMaster.

Now fully trained in both our systems and online software like Xero and QuickBooks, Nitin can immediately go into business without apprehension of what’s to come and hit the ground running. He says the training academy further solidified to him the support he would receive from ServiceMaster.”[I could ask questions and discuss anything. The quality of the training, materials, and people are all of a high standard: I am pleased with it all.”

Rosemary Bookkeeping brand leader, Nina Skoczόłek says she is “Excited to welcome Nitin as a Rosemary Bookkeeper. He brings to the network years of financial experience and a passion to help micro and small business owners get a better understanding of

their business finances allowing them to make more informed decisions and grow their companies. I’m looking forward to supporting Nitin on his journey.”

Based on his pleasant experience with the ServiceMaster team, Nitin says he would recommend ServiceMaster and Rosemary Bookkeeping to any person aspiring to start a franchising journey like him. “[There are] no hard sales or pressure, ServiceMaster is a great place to start,” he says.

Introducing Nirmal Thakkar, the new business owner bringing Rosemary Bookkeeping services to Stevenage and surrounding areas. 

Back in June, we sat down with Nirmal Thakkar, the brand-new owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Garden City at the end of her training academy to talk about her life and new business.

Nirmal loved taking part in her bookkeeping training and feels like she’s prepared to carry out the processes required to help her clients with their bookkeeping needs, and is looking forward to building even more skills that will come with practice.

Nirmal came to the UK in 2002 from India, and received an MBA from Hertfordshire University, before going on to work in sales banking. She then took a break from the industry whilst on maternity leave and helped a friend build his business from the ground up. More recently, Nirmal has been working within the NHS as a 111-call handler, which has seen her lead a team with 25 people and work as both a trainer and auditor. Nirmal balances her work life with home life as a Mum to her 10-month-old son and 11-year-old daughter.

She was attracted to Rosemary, she says because she wanted more time to spend with her family. And after hearing about Rosemary from a friend, whose judgement she trusted judgement, Nirmal looked into Rosemary and compared it with other businesses. She says that after speaking to the Rosemary Brand Leader and our friendly franchise sales team she felt a good connection with the people and brand at Rosemary and a sense of comfort that was different when compared to other franchises. Now having completed her academy and ready to start trading, she says she feels “100% confident that [she has] done the right thing.”

In choosing to start a franchise business, Nirmal says, you are working as part of an extended network that is already in the market, as an already established business with a strong brand name. This gives you extra support from the network, and Nirmal says she has already been “blown away with the potential marketing from the support centre” at ServiceMaster head office.

If, like Nirmal, you would like to begin a franchising journey with us to grow your very own successful bookkeeping business in a supportive environment of franchise professionals, fill out a contact form or call 0116 275 9005 to get in touch with our Franchise Sales team today and find available opportunities near you.

We sat down with Mohammad Hossain, the owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping in Stratford to chat about his experience as a franchisee for Rosemary Bookkeeping.

Mohammad’s Experience

Mohammad came to the UK in 2009 to begin training in accountancy with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. Within three years he was ready to start work in an accounting firm, getting some hands-on and practical experience as a training provider.

Whilst continuing with his study, Mohammad spent seven months training on SAGE accounting and payroll.

During this time, he also practised at different accounting, practice, and charity firms to build a base of practical accountancy skills like managing VAT and accounts, with the hope of one day being able to build a client base of his own and become a trusted source for people looking for help with their finances.

A change of career

When the COVID pandemic began in 2020, Mohammad was able to take a step back and gain a fresh perspective. He realised he wanted to start his own business.

He realised he had been gaining experience for around 10 years now, it was time to make something of his own. So, he did some research and decided that he wanted to go the route of franchising because of the added support he would gain from a franchise network.

“I wanted to be independent and be out on my own,” he says.

“I was very confident in the skills, knowledge and expertise I had in accounting and services like payroll, VAT, and CIS, and that I could run my own business.

I knew it would be difficult for me to do this on my own without any kind of support to help me strengthen and grow the business. So, I decided not to go alone and to go with a franchise that could give me all the support I needed to grow.”

Mohammad then spent a long time looking into franchises that would be a good fit for his experience and that he felt would be a reliable investment for him but says he struggled to find anything that was a good fit.

“I had been gaining experience for the last ten years and I wanted to use my skills and expertise for my own business. So, I was looking for something that suited me but wasn’t finding anything.”

Finding Rosemary Bookkeeping

But then, whilst looking in the franchise magazine Point Franchise, Mohammad found ServiceMaster and Rosemary Bookkeeping. He got in touch with our friendly franchise recruitment team and was impressed by the simultaneous friendliness and professionalism of the ServiceMaster and Rosemary team.

Mohammad then asked Emma for some references for the other Rosemary franchisees before making any decisions, and says he was left very optimistic due to the responses of the other business owners, as well as feeling reassured in his investment due to Rosemary’s background “as a multinational company with a very strong background.”

Training as a Rosemary business owner

After deciding to join the Rosemary Bookkeeping network as a franchise owner, Mohammad underwent our comprehensive two-week training academy to become acquainted with the systems, processes, and operations of managing a Rosemary Bookkeeping business.

As someone who is always looking to grow and expand his knowledge, Mohammad says he enjoyed the experience of the training academy.

“I found the academy excellent and that period of training really exciting. Rosemary prepared so much to welcome me on board that was not only engaging with the business, but training, support, and preparation for all the knowledge and technology the business needs.

Everything I needed, they provided me [with]. The academy was perfect.

Even though I was already trained under SAGE, Xero, and other bookkeeping steps, came out with more knowledge, new skills, and experience.”

Network support and getting settled

Due to starting his business during the COVID-19 paramedic, Mohammad initially struggled to build a client base. But he was supported through this by the franchise network.

“In the beginning, there weren’t many clients, mostly ones from my old business. But I was assured by Nina [Rosemary Bookkeeping brand leader] and other Rosemary franchisees to be patient and it would grow and that’s what happened.

Now I’m really happy I am getting more clients, more responses, getting familiar with the people and local businesses and it’s just looking very positive.”

The rewards of a Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise

Now, Mohammad says he finds being a franchise owner very rewarding for many reasons. Chiefly though, he says he gains satisfaction from building a strong customer base and building brand awareness in his territory – something he says is helped by being part of the wider Rosemary brand.

“I’m getting clients through the website and now my friends and other people ask me about Rosemary, whereas previously they didn’t know about it, or people don’t know the difference between bookkeeping and accounting.

But now thanks to the website or marketing, the Rosemary name is getting out there online and locally, so that when people search for bookkeeping organisations – my name comes up as a leading name.”

But at the heart of it, Mohammad’s primary source of satisfaction comes from helping his clients and feeling accomplished in that he can help them when they need it. And due to being part of a wider network, when he needs help and support, it is on hand.

“The best thing is all work I do for the clients and the satisfaction from being able to help them through something myself, but also knowing that whenever I face difficulties, there is support and the rest of the franchisees who can help me. At any time, I can leave questions or messages and get a response very quickly, which is wonderful.”

Mohammad says that this makes working with a franchise a lot better than owning a business by yourself. Even though he was concerned about the initial investment.

“[Owning a business on your own] will be really difficult in this competitive market because the big brands will not let you get clients easily. But working with Rosemary, within one year I can see that I am getting a positive return on the investment.”

RBK North Kent award

New bookkeeping business has been launched in the North Kent and Isle of Sheppey area by local businessman Grant Dye.

Grant is very experienced in Finance and Accounts and has previously been a Senior Financial Business Partner, managing a team of up to 5 employees. He has also been a Financial Controller for a small start-up company amongst other roles in the industry. Grant is ACCA & AAT qualified and recently became a Member Firm of IFA and IPA and regulated and supervised by the IFA for compliance with the Anti-Money Laundering (AML). He also holds a Practising Certificate as an Associate Tax Advisor (ATA).

After being in the finance & accountancy sector for 30 years, Grant decided it was time for a change and after researching demand in his local area and business options available, Grant made the decision to invest in Rosemary Bookkeeping North Kent and Isle of Sheppey.

“I felt like I had the right skills and experience to go into bookkeeping, but felt that I needed the support and know-how of Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise, in running my first business,” commented Grant.

Grant plans to build strong long-term relationships with other local businesses and become the go-to bookkeeper for SME’s in his area. His ultimate goal is to support the local businesses in their bookkeeping so that they can focus on those skills that make their business great.

Grant’s 2-year plan is to grow his business allowing him to employ people locally, which will, in turn, assist in the continued growth and development of his business.

“The whole process of purchasing a Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise was slick and well organised. The team at head office are always there with advice and their expertise are second to none,” added Grant.

The benefit of being part of a franchise is the additional support from Head Office but also the support of the other excellent Bookkeepers in the network, our clients know their books are being processed intelligently and efficiently using our fantastic Quality Checked Rosemary System.

“We are delighted to welcome Grant to the Rosemary network, we absolutely feel that Grant has all the expertise and experience required to provide an excellent bookkeeping service to his clients, and to grow a successful business with Rosemary Bookkeeping”.

We are proud to announce that two new Rosemary businesses are open for business this week!

Fiona Perks of Rosemary Bookkeeping Wyre Forest and Steve Booth of Rosemary Bookkeeping East Kent have successfully completed their comprehensive training with us and have opened the doors to their new bookkeeping business.

Here’s a little about Fiona,

“Hi, my name is Fiona, and I am very excited to be joining the Rosemary network covering the Wyre Forest area in Worcestershire.

I have worked in finance for 15 years and am a CIMA qualified accountant so feel that my experience and passion will give me a great start when opening my bookkeeping business. I can’t wait to get started and helping local businesses to get organised!

I am also keen to grow my business and hope to be able to offer some flexible working options in my area in the future.

I have a young family so am confident that Rosemary will allow me a great work life balance.  As a family we love walking our dog and we love to try and get away on holiday around the UK or abroad as often as we can.”

Here’s a little about Steve, 

“Hello I’m Steve, I am the new franchise owner of Rosemary East Kent.

Justine my partner will be helping me run the business who is an FCCA accountant, and has worked for the past twenty years for Lloyd’s of London on the financial review team, being responsible for corporation’s VAT returns.

I decided to become a Rosemary franchisee because I wanted more flexibility in my life and wanted to work for myself. My main drive for joining Rosemary was because I wanted a better work, life balance and I want to spend more time with my 10-year-old son Aiden. As a Rosemary franchise owner, I am looking forward to being my own boss and not having to travel 3 hours a day for work!

I am really excited to have joined Rosemary and I am looking forward to the challenge!”

We look forward to working closely with both Fiona and Steve to help them to grow their Rosemary Bookkeeping businesses. They’ll get to meet our whole Rosemary network very soon at our next network meeting in early Summer.

Neeta Patel attended a bfa sponsored franchise exhibition and was curious when the name Rosemary Bookkeeping kept being mentioned.  Being a qualified Management Accountant she was initially researching Accountancy franchises but her curiosity won and she looked the Rosemary Franchise website and booked in for a Discovery Event.

Having worked in industry for all of her working life, Neeta was seeking to find the ideal work/life balance following the birth of her son.  She wanted to work – working with numbers was something that always interested her – but she also wanted to spend quality time with her son.  A traditional 9-5 role didn’t fit this bill so when she was made redundant in November 2015 this was the ideal opportunity to search for the right position for her, hence her visiting a franchise exhibition.

“In 12 months’ time I want to have established myself as a reputable bookkeeper in my area of Northampton and to have built up a sizeable business whereby I can begin to employ staff and turn my role into a more management position”.

The Rosemary BookkeepingTM franchise responds to the increasing need in the UK for an affordable, professional bookkeeping service that supports both the client and the accountant. Neeta will be working in harmony with her clients’ accountants, providing them with exactly what they need in the format they want saving his clients’ time and money.

Steve Brown of Rosemary Bookkeeping Newbury is a finalist in the Olderpreneur of the Year category of the BFA’s Franchisee of the Year Awards.

Steve started his bookkeeping business in 2010 with his daughter, TJ Sutherland, who operates the Basingstoke territory.

He says: “I was working long hours in IT as a global business support manager in a pressurised environment and my daughter was looking to go back to work after having her daughter. We both wanted to achieve a better work/life balance.

TEAMWORK

“Since 2010 our business has grown extensively and we now have two full-time and three part-time members of staff. TJ and I work as a team, but each has key roles, with individual responsibility for our own territory and the clients within our territories. “Having grown the business, we now are able to take a back seat in relation to actually doing the processing and focus more on managing and growing the business. “One of my key aims at the start of the franchise was that I wanted to build a sustainable business to pass down to my children and grandchildren and support the local community. Rosemary Bookkeeping has helped me to fulfil this ambition and I hope that in our next term with Rosemary perhaps I can retire. “I am extremely proud to be a finalist in the British Franchise Association awards. It shows that even with age you can achieve great things.”
