Numbers are undoubtedly gold dust for any accountant and it’s important to understand where the numbers have come from. We would like to share with you some important facts and figures relating to the AIMS Accountancy Franchise so that you have an understanding of what drives these numbers and see how being part of the AIMS organisation can work for you.
In the last 12 months 4,989 small businesses chose to work with an AIMS accountant and 35 new accountants started their own practice with AIMS
Fact – We 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 – just like us!
Over 50% of new clients came from referrals
Fact – Our clients enjoy working with AIMS – they tell us all the time. We provide a quality service with benefits that suit them and their business. Why would they go anywhere else? We are able to offer what other accountants can’t.
