We help franchisees succeed
We can help you fund the dream. We are the leading independent franchise funding brokerage in the UK, and have relationships with the franchise teams at all leading banks and asset finance companies.
We know how your franchise should work. When we work with a network, we get to know the franchise. We know what costs you'll have, who you'll be dealing with, and how your location should perform. You benefit from that combined experience across the entire network.
We add value, not numbers. It's fairly easy to do accounts and tax correctly - most accountants do. Very few go further. We can work with you to make sure that you are reaching your potential; using your plan and network-wide benchmarking as a guide to how you should be doing.
By helping franchisees, we help build great franchisors
We give you peace of mind. Through our network accounting solutions, we help you sleep at night. Your franchisees will be reporting consistently, in real-time. There won't be different views on which system to use or how to treat something. And through our bespoke Franchise Dashboard software, only available to our network accounting franchisors, it'll be there for you at the click of a button.
We help you replicate best practice. By taking time to learn about your brand and how you work, we will advise the best solution for your internal headaches. We'll bring in our proprietary technology alongside the leading tools to make sure that we have the live data to see what works and what doesn't. From this, you can look at activity against results, and help your franchisees become more profitable and more satisfied.
We've got your back. We've been in the franchising world for 17 years, are the UK's leading franchise accountants, work with some of the biggest brands, and have heaps of credibility behind us. We'll help ensure that you are running your network effectively, and that you are represented well to funders and the wider industry.
What their clients say
PHILIP M ECKERSLEY
Founder & Managing Director
“I have been very pleased with the way D&T have supported our prospect and new franchisees through a careful handholding process that wraps in business planning, acquiring the relevant funding and providing accountancy services with any additional support included. I have found D&T responsive to our needs and very easy to work with.”
CARL READER - MANAGING DIRECTOR
68% of people aged between 18-55 want to be self employed, yet only 1 in 7 actually are.
So what's stopping people from taking the leap and building their own business? Can franchising provide some help in getting started?
We ask ourselves this on a regular basis, but in this episode we get to ask the inspiring Carl Reader author of one of the best selling books, Boss It. He shares his views on changing the public perception of what being in business for yourself is actually like and why a normal career path may not be for the best route for everyone.
