Support and Training
The SpeedETax business model has been designed to deliver expert advice and provides personal and business tax returns and bookkeeping/payroll services in a timely and accurate manner. It also has a specific expertise in dealing with IRS audits.
SpeedETax has developed a brand that fills a market space with a high level of need for business and tax services and support. SpeedETax can offer everything from business consulting to tax preparation. The business works well in all different types of demographic markets, including low-income markets where it has created a niche business of targeted marketing and word of mouth growth. Although the business model is essentially perfected, a growing market requires the capability and bandwidth of new offices and tax professionals that can offer the same suite of services to people and businesses in different regions of the country. The key is to deliver a selection of uniform services that will allow for efficient replication and individual franchisee growth.
When you join the SpeedETax team as a franchise owner, you will receive outstanding support in a number of different and exciting areas including:
