The abacus franchise

The abacus accountancy franchise is an associate member of the British Franchise Association. The abacus network offers a unique franchise opportunity designed to help generate a thriving business for qualified accountants.

The success of the pilot scheme, which commenced in 2002 and operated for 2 years, gave abacus the confidence to launch the franchise in September 2004 and has since steadily increased its number of franchisees.

From our experience companies demand professionalism of the highest quality and value for money. We believe this can only be achieved by recruiting experienced qualified accountants.

The UK has been divided into approximately 200 exclusive territories. The territories vary in size but give equal opportunity as each has approximately 10,000 businesses operating within it. We then group these businesses by 5 turnover bands and is the basis for the appointment generation in the territory. The abacus call centre then will generate 100 verified and confirmed appointments for you in the first year of operation.

There is also the opportunity to earn additional fee income from other abacus group companies and network strategic partners.

By buying into a franchise your business is backed by a proven model, which is well marketed and supported by a team of experts at head office. It will benefit from a national brand, whilst being able to tap into other Business and Financial Support Services from the abacus group, and as part of a nationwide operation you are well placed to contend with any high street competitor, regardless of size.

This is why we decided that, unlike other accountancy franchise opportunities, the abacus franchise would only be offered to qualified accountants.

You will have automatic access to a tried and tested business model, be able to obtain help from a peer group of likeminded accountants, who are also part of the network, whilst also having the independence of running your own business.

We have ensured that all territories are fair and equitable and therefore this franchise presents an opportunity not to be missed!


Franchise Opportunities

The abacus Accountancy Franchise Network offers a unique and limited franchise opportunity designed to help generate a thriving business for qualified accountants in the SME market.

At abacus , we have analysed the SME market place over a two-year period to find out what UK business people require from accountancy suppliers, business support and financial services. Our findings show that the SME market requires a multi-disciplined organisation to support all of its administrative and operational requirements. Our franchise opportunity provides such an organisation. Each of our franchisees will be a qualified accountant supported by consultants across the full range of business support and financial services. The benefit to the SME market is a one-stop-shop organisation and the benefit to the franchisee is fees and/or commission for the services used.

Additionally from our two-year pilot scheme it became apparent that all companies demanded professionalism, the highest quality and value for money. This is why we decided that our franchise would only be offered to qualified accountants unlike other accountancy franchise opportunities. Your business will be backed by a reputable nationwide franchise operation, in which our dedicated call centre will generate confirmed business appointments in your exclusive territory .
