AIMS Accountants for Business Franchise
Accounting Firm

Your own Practice and AIMS Support

The AIMS Accountants for Business Franchise is a market leader in accountancy and taxation services for SMEs. They have been established for over 23 years and with over 200 accountants nationwide. They continue to enjoy robust growth along with a successful track record.

AIMS' success is down to the clear focus on their clients, their successful systems and on their accountants – their accountants are personally responsible for each and every one of their clients thus ensuring a personable service and a quality service guaranteed.

The AIMS Ethos

AIMS have a very flat management structure and they pride themselves on being informal but they still maintain a high standard of professionalism – they also expect this of their accountants.

The ethos is a very clear one with many factors that have contributed to their success:

  • They don’t believe in corporate walls or red tape and there are no stifling targets – AIMS don’t impose financial targets, so you grow your Accounting Firm to a level you want.
  • They combine your accountancy expertise with their initial and ongoing training and support in accountancy, taxation, business systems, IT and Marketing, enabling you to develop a practice that is a profitable business and an asset with capital value that you could sell in the future.
  • They are not static and constantly review their systems and procedures to keep updated with the latest developments so you are on top of any new market trends.
  • Their decentralized structure means that they can offer clients a cost-efficient pricing structure which is unique to AIMS, along with peace of mind – they know that they are dealing with a qualified accountant who puts the needs of their clients first.
  • You will not be alone – you have their full backup and support and you can contact them whenever you need them.
  • Your clients have the security and backing of a national organisation delivered by a local presence.
  • They believe your efforts should be directly reflected in your rewards.

AIMS' Clients:

AIMS focus exclusively on SMEs; businesses which are usually operated by their owners. They may be sole-traders or they may employ 100 staff; they may have a small turnover or they may enjoy an eight-figure turnover. Aside from this they all have one thing in common: it is their business and they want and need straight and direct communication and no corporate red tape!

No one client is the same thus you will enjoy a rich variety of personalities and an equally rich variety of tax, accounting and business issues.

About You

Something that AIMS like to make very clear is that they are all about job satisfaction; this is the most important part of their corporate culture. You already have the skills, the professional qualifications and a successful track record. In order to achieve optimum job satisfaction you now want to move away from corporate life and the red tape that surrounds it and take control of your career.

In short, AIMS is a synergy of their systems and of you and your expertise.

Ultimately they want you to make the most of your skills and qualifications and achieve financial success

All they ask is that you are fully qualified and hold a practising certificate or are eligible for one.

Training and Support
