Small business and accounting specialist, The TaxAssist Direct Group, have been nominated for an award from the annual Eastern Daily Press Business Awards within the eastern region.
All finalists nominated have been interviewed as a part of the process to help inform the final decision as to who will be named the winner next month.
The Eastern Daily Press Business awards take place at Norfolk Showground Arena on 21 November, hosted by film and television star, James Nesbitt.
Karl Sandall, group chief executive of the TaxAssist Direct Group, said: “To even make the shortlist is a huge honour, and highlights the stature of our business which has grown so successfully since its inception in Norwich in 1995.
“We now have more than 250 franchised areas across the UK, Ireland and Australia, with the network servicing over 84,000 clients with a combined fee bank of more than £55.4 million.”
He added: “We plan to recruit further new employees this year, as new support lines to our global franchisee network are added. We are also progressing well with plans to launch in Canada and the USA in 2020.”
Richard Porritt, Business Editor of The Eastern Daily Press, said of the finalists: “These are the firms that are driving our region. These are the firms on the edge of innovation that will change all our lives. These are the firms making a difference.”
The nomination comes after The TaxAssist Direct group strengthened its technical, marketing and technology teams further bolstering support to the franchise network by appointing six new members.
