Franchise owner, Stewart Watson of Crewcut Lawns and Garden Franchise knows all about the challenges of starting a new franchise, especially how important it is to have the right accounting support from the beginning.
“I signed up with my local SBA Small Business Accounting branch as I knew they specialised in looking after small businesses like mine. The team at SBA was very down-to-earth and professional. I bombarded them with questions, and they always answered everything in simple, easy terms.”
“As expected, my first year was really busy building up my portfolio of clients and has grown steadily since. It was a huge learning curve trying to manage my day-to-day schedule and tool maintenance. On top of that, trying to manage invoicing, payments, GST, and of course preparing my end-of-year financials, that is where SBA was amazing. Now that I am a few years in, I have a good system going with my local SBA, but I continue to look for ways to be more effective and streamline my financial management.”
“The benefits of using SBA have been huge for my franchise business. I like that they are small, and they are local, and that they are not a large corporate where I would be a faceless number. The SBA team knows me and my business. Plus, as a franchisee myself, I like that my accounting service provider is a franchise owner too and that they understand the benefits and challenges of franchising.”
“I highly recommend SBA as they have an absolutely fresh approach and a really great local understanding of small business and in particular franchise businesses.”
