In October 2012 Mike Melling purchased Mark Fordham’s franchise. After a 30 year career in financial services and more recently operational consulting, Mike bought the Harpenden and St Albans franchise and has expanded the territory to include Radlett and Shenley.

TaxAssist Accountants - Mike MellingHaving worked around the world in senior positions for companies like American Express, GE Capital and Marsh & McLennan, Mike was interested in developing a family business that his wife Penny and twin children Katherine and James could become involved in as well as the opportunity to build an asset for the longer term.

"The more I found out about the growth and success of the TaxAssist Accountants model and the more I talked to people at the Norwich Support Centre and around the network, I became convinced that this was the business I wanted to buy into and continue to grow," said Mike.

Mike is thoroughly enjoying the client and business development, with Katherine and James already helping out with extended office opening hours including Thursday nights and Saturdays mornings during the peak season.

Karl Sandall, Chief Executive of TaxAssist Accountants said,
"Clearly we are thrilled to have achieved this landmark sale; it is a testament to the strength of our business model that we are achieving these kind of resale figures and still achieving double digit growth year on year."
