First Class Accounts
Owning a First Class Accounts bookkeeping franchise means you can turn bookkeeping from a job into a rewarding career, where you are the boss! The brand is dedicated to providing the highest quality bookkeeping services to business owners. The franchise fees are some of the most affordable available, and there are no heavy rental commitments for retail premises required, the model makes it easy to do bookkeeping from home.
What an honour that people who know franchises inside and out, recognised the hard work we put in to make First Class Accounts the incredible franchise that it is. We recently had a conversation with Tracey Leak, an incredible business coach we, and our franchisees, work with, to discuss what makes us so unique in the franchise and bookkeeping worlds, and we decided it was people. Our people. By focusing on the people behind the franchises – not just the bottom line – we are able to create a supportive and inspiring business. By concentrating on people, we have been able to build a support network and an environment where job satisfaction and work/life balance is the number one priority. By making people our number one priority, we can confidently say our franchisees feel like family, and our community spirit, regardless of borders and timezones, shines through all of our interactions.
The magazine was right, we are certainly dedicated to providing the highest quality bookkeeping services to business owners. And what creates that level of excellence is our training and support. Whether they are sole operators working from their home office or employ a big team, we provide our franchisees with 4 x training sessions a year, constant technical support and utilise our size to obtain the best deals with software partners. We work closely with industry leaders like MYOB and Xero, to stay on top of bookkeeping trends and make sure all of our franchisees have the most up-to-date training.
When our new franchisees come on board, we make sure they are not only qualified to be a bookkeeper and have the right certifications, but we also make sure they understand how to run a business. This is so often overlooked with franchise systems. It’s not just about piggybacking off a brand name, it’s about understanding how successful businesses run, it’s about demystifying marketing, providing mentors and access to inspiring and motivating content. People say we are like a family, and we are. The national office team love what we do, and we are here for our franchisees. And our franchisees are there for each other as well. There is no competition – it’s about supporting each other, making friends and ensuring that your business has the right balance. Business Franchise mag got it right, you can be your own boss – but you are never by yourself!
We were so proud that our vision and high standards have been recognised as a great business opportunity.
