Analyzing Bookkeeping Office Franchise
Summary
Bookkeeping office franchise is one of the fastest growing franchises in the world. This is mainly due to the fast growth of small businesses that have less than 19 employees over the past two decades and often rather than employ a full time accountant, make use of part time bookkeepers (Teixeira, 2010).
The bookkeeping office that I intend to open will focused mainly on outsourced accounting services to these small businesses that need part time bookkeepers. The bookkeeping franchise will in particular strengthen the franchise systems of small businesses through provision of cost effective bookkeeping services, quality assurance, tax readiness, consolidated reporting, consulting and outsourced CFO services. Its main aim is to provide analyze and provide timely, relevant, accurate and secure financial data to businesses to that will be helpful in maximizing the performance of the businesses. The business will not only maintain books and generate financial reports, but will also help franchisees to better understand how to read and interpret financial information.
Opening this franchise will require research and analysis on the costs that will be incurred. Shown below is the cost-volume-profit analysis model for the bookkeeping office franchise and the estimate of the break even sales and units.
