In November 2020, Raman Boparai started her journey with dns accountants. After her first year in business, she’s doing so well, exceeding her own expectations.
For some, the idea of starting a new business during a global pandemic might not have seemed like the wisest decision. But, for Raman Boparai, it was not only the right time for her, it has allowed her to thrive as the owner of her own accountancy practice.
You can read more about Raman’s decision to invest in dns accountants Barking, on our website, when she realised she wanted her career to give her more time at home with her three boys. “I’ve learned, from my twin boys and their autistic older brother, why having a relaxed homelife is so important, and the value of creating happy memories as a family. This is definitely something I’ve been able to achieve, whilst working from home. So, having been doing this, now, for a year, I’m feeling really good,” Raman says. “And from a business perspective, things have worked out much better than I ‘d expected: I’ve exceeded my original sales forecast by at least 50%! This is due to the support I’ve had from the dns accountants Head office, with sales and leads.”
Raman, like many others, could have given-up on her dream of working for herself, because of fears around working alone or lack of experience. But, as part of the dns accountants’ network, Raman has learnt how to lean on the wider experience around her. “I’d never actually run my own practice before, as I’d only worked in the back office, so I felt really uncertain, when I first started. With not having had much customer-facing experience, I didn’t feel confident about talking with clients or new leads! As a dns accountants franchise partner, I have this amazing team behind me, with an incredible amount of expertise. So, when I turned to the Support Office, they showed me how I can make genuine connection with my clients, more easily.”
At dns accountants, we understand how starting your own business isn’t always an easy process. However, like Raman has shown, with the right level of support the process can be made more achievable. Over her first year, Raman really benefited from our support. “Starting my own business has been a great experience, and I’m excited for the future. Like any new business owner, I did have some teething issues, but everyone at dns accountants has been fantastic! Really encouraging! To me, dns accountants feels like this big eco-system which is set-up for growth, enabling you to grow along with it; I can definitely say I have grown substantially, over the first year! It can be quite isolating working for yourself, but with dns accountants, I’m part of something bigger.”
And the benefit she has gained, goes beyond growing a successful business, and reaping the rewards for herself. “I also feel as though I’m in a much better place, than I ever have been – not just financially, but mentally and emotionally as well. I finally feel like I’m achieving the work-life balance I’ve always wanted. dns accountants’ support with things like sales and lead generation, freed me to properly focus on what’s most important: growing my business and spending time with my family. I really feel like I’m travelling a graph of exponential growth – I’m off the ground, and up I go!”
A huge congratulations to Raman from everyone here at dns accountants. We’re looking forward to even greater things from you in the future!

I joined DNS as a Franchisee in 2015. After visiting the offices and speaking to staff, I was really impressed with the culture of the business and wanted to be a part of it.
I wanted to grow the my business on my own, but also have the backing and expertise of a large firm who could assist me whenever needed. This gave me the confidence to work with more demanding clients who I would not have been able to otherwise.
Although I work remotely, I am made to feel a valued member of the team and have loved my time working with Gary, Sumit and the rest of the staff..
DNS accounting group is more like a home than just a professional accountancy practice. We share, care and make progress together. As a DNS Franchise, you will always feel secure..
My Franchisee training has been both effective and efficient. It has provided me with the necessary knowledge for running my business, both in terms of software and any technical knowledge that I may wish to review.
In terms of flexibility, once again the DNS value is apparent throughout. All the trainers are thorough in the areas they teach and also ensure whenever I need their assistance the solution is provided promptly.
It is truly impressive to witness the specialised knowledge such a vast team can have and how they are genuinely there to help me..
