The Tax Shop

Yesterday, today and tomorrow
The Tax Shop concept was founded by two Chartered Accountants after identifying a need in the market for professional taxation and business services. The high demand for these services prompted them to expand their operations by franchising which, in turn, has established The Tax Shop as one of the faster-growing franchises in South Africa today. In 2012, ownership of the company was boosted when husband and wife team, Nico and Elaine Viljoen joined The Tax Shop. The current directors are Bernard Shcoeman (CA(SA)), Nico Viljoen (MBA) and Elaine Viljoen (CA(SA)).

The success of the company can be attributed to their ability to offer a diverse host of local and international business skills within the SME and large corporate environment.
The concept under the spotlight
The Tax Shop is a unique franchising opportunity designed for individuals who have an interest in offering financial and business services. It is ideally suited to accountants and other financial practitioners who wish to establish new practices or expand their existing businesses, but it is not necessarily limited to such individuals. With 80 successful outlets throughout South Africa, The Tax Shop is fast becoming the top name in professionalism and service excellence. Tax Shop outlets are distinguished by their exceptional standards, competitive pricing and regular delivery of their ‘one-stop’ promise. Advanced integrated systems ensure response times that are not easily matched and consistent standards among all franchisees ensure that the public can easily move between Tax Shops without compromising service quality.

The Tax Shop is the only company in South Africa offering a single solution in the fields of accounting and bookkeeping, BEE consulting and certificates, payroll, business registrations and taxation and all SARS-related services. It has distinguished itself as a genuine one-stop professional services provider in these fields.
The services offered by The Tax Shop are aimed at individuals as well as small, medium and large enterprises. The franchise has diversified by establishing separate divisions to cater for private individuals, micro entities, SMEs and large corporates.

Consider your support
The franchisor offers ongoing support by frequently updating franchisees with information pertaining to the services offered by The Tax Shop and through free updates to its software, business systems and website.

The initial training provided by the franchisor is hosted at their training office in Pretoria and typically lasts three days. The training schedule covers all the services offered by The Tax Shop outlets, the software used, communication with relevant bodies e.g. SARS and CIPC, general administration and franchise management. Thereafter, ongoing training takes place via online tutorials and guides which are often issued to ensure that franchisees remain at the cutting edge of the profession.

Advertising fees collected from franchisees are employed towards the continued regional, provincial and national marketing undertaken by the franchisor. The franchisor regularly offers leads to all franchisees.

Do you fit the profile?
A Tax Shop franchisee should be a highly motivated, dynamic and dedicated entrepreneur committed to delivering excellent standards of professionalism. While no formal qualifications are required, a background in accounting or taxation is a must.
