Franchise Accounting Case Study
We have looked after several hundred franchisees for a national home delivery company for many years. During this time, we have been a leading member of the franchisor’s panel of accountants who look after their franchisees.
We co-ordinate their services and systems to provide a consistent accounting and reporting framework designed to be simple for the franchisees. We provide data in a format the franchisor can easily consolidate, aggregate and analyse in order to make strategic and policy decisions for their franchise operations.
Making Tax Digital System Development
In the last few years, a significant challenge was presented in the form of the Making Tax Digital system for VAT reporting. The system being used for accounting prior to MTD was not built in a way that would comply with the new rules, so Approved Accounting were asked to design and build a new system on behalf of the franchisor and the other panel accountants.
What was involved in the franchise accounting service
We can make your franchise finances run like clockwork
This was an extremely successful project which worked exactly as we had planned and was well-received by everyone who used it. We feel it demonstrates what we can do with a very specific set of requirements and in this case an outdated system in need of updating.
Not all projects will require such a fundamental re-think as this one, but whatever the needs of your franchise business, we’re confident we can help you design and implement the pre-requisites of a reliable, efficient and consistent system to make your franchise operation run like clockwork!
