Richard Chatten, International Support Officer at TaxAssist Accountants, gains QFP status

Richard Chatten International Support Officer at TaxAssist Accountants gains Qualified Franchise Professional (QFP) status.

After a years’ study and an interview with a panel of industry experts, Richard Chatten has been awarded the qualification, bolstering the already highly experienced and qualified team at the Norwich based Support Centre. Richard is the third member of staff at TaxAssist along with Karl Sandall CEO and David Paulson Senior Manager UK & International Franchise Development to gain the qualification.

QFP is the only nationally recognised qualification specific to the franchising industry. It signifies a highly developed level of expertise and experience in franchising and a thorough understanding of its complexities, ethical standards and best practices.

Unlike membership of the British Franchise Association (bfa), the QFP is specific to an individual and not to a company. It’s a recognition of a personal level of commitment, time and continuous professional development by a member of the franchising community.

Karl Sandall CEO of TaxAssist Accountants comments:
"Many congratulations to Richard for his hard work and dedication in gaining the QFP qualification. Richard has only been with TaxAssist Accountants for a year, having joined us in 2015 following seven years at a leading international franchise consultancy and publishing company, but in that time his passion and commitment to TaxAssist and franchising has been clear. His work is of an exception level and he has delivered absolutely first class levels of support to our Master Franchisees as they have worked to establish the TaxAssist brand in their territories.

Richard’s qualification bolsters an already very experienced team at TaxAssist who have been growing the TaxAssist brand internationally and I look forward to working with Richard as we expand further into Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA."
