If you’ve dreamt of opening your own accountancy firm and aren’t sure where to start, then a DNS Accountants franchise could be what you need. Like it has been for franchise partner, Hema Caullychurn.
Could you imagine yourself being in charge of your own accountancy business? You thrive on making the numbers fit, and helping clients keep their finances in order. But, have you reached a stage where you actually quite like to do this for yourself, instead of working for someone else’s future?
DNS Accountants empowers people like you, to use your hard work and to drive to build your own successful business. By giving you both comprehensive training and ongoing support, we ensure you have all the tools they need to run their own practice. This strategy to business ownership has certainly helped to fulfil the ambitions of Hema Caullychurn who is now Managing Director of her own DNS Accountants office, in Bournemouth.
A long-time dream realised!
For Hema, starting her own practice was the culmination of a dream she’d aspired to for many years. Despite having begun her accounting studies, she wasn’t yet properly qualified to start-up alone. As a result, it was a while after moving back to the UK from Mauritius, before Hema could start to put her goal into action. After working a number of different jobs, including a Deputy Manager position for a well-known high street bank, Hema and her husband became increasing keen to do something different, and take control of their careers.
Sick of long commutes and working for other people, they jumped at an opportunity to take over a local post office. In the spirit of a true entrepreneur, it wasn’t long before Hema saw this as her golden opportunity – she could open her own accountancy within their post office!
Not fully qualified? No problem!
Already enrolled on an AAT qualification course, and with her background in finance management, Hema had taken the first steps herself and just needed to team up with a reputable brand to take her the rest of the way. “As I didn’t yet have the right experience or qualifications,” Hema explains, “I started looking around at what franchises would give me the option of investing in the future I wanted. I chose DNS because they offered me the best terms for both training and payment options, and also because they had the best rate for outsourcing work.”
By helping Hema with outsourcing her clients to our experienced accountants, she can focus on completing her qualification and growing her customer base, giving her the best possible head-start in her new business. “As I’ve just started my business,” Hema continues, “I’m working hard to build trust with my customers. It’s not always easy, but, luckily, the DNS franchise support team have everything covered. When I do need to outsource work to cover those areas clients need, but I’m not yet confident with, Head Office treat my clients in the same way they do their own, and always go the extra mile for them.”
Limited experience? No problem!
Even if you have only very limited experience in running your own business, and aren’t sure how to find your first clients, DNS Accountants will help you get started. Our training not only gives you a solid grounding in how to operate your own office, our ongoing package of support will ensure you have all the expert advice and guidance you need to get your new business off the ground. “I’m not experienced in sales, and lack some of the confidence needed to talk to new customers – although the DNS Franchise Support Team were sending me lots of leads. I called them to ask for help with sales, and they said they have people who can specifically help me with telesales. They’ve already signed a couple of new clients for me!”
Hema is confident, with DNS Accountants behind her she has the skills, drive and ambition to make her DNS Accountants Bournemouth really work for her. “I am very happy with DNS Accountants. They have supported me fully, from day one, and I am sure they will continue to do so in the future.”
