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.
