d&t to present at the virtual International Franchise Show

Chartered accountants and business advisors, d&t have been selected to present at the Virtual International Franchise Show to be held on 5 and 6 June 2020. 

One of Britain’s biggest and busiest franchise shows has gone online and during the event James Thomas, QFP commercial manager, d&t will deliver a seminar entitled, seven tips for a killer business plan at 2:30 pm this Saturday, 6 June.

Thomas explains: “The lockdown has given many people time to reflect and reconsider their future. For those who may be now thinking the old nine-to-five job is no longer for them, franchising offers one of the most reliable routes to becoming self-employed. As a result, we anticipate there will be a good level of interest in the sector moving forwards. 

“For those who do want to become their own boss, the virtual International Franchise Show is a great place to start. It’s free to attend online and to virtually explore the franchises that are available.

“There will also be a programme of live webinars and I will be discussing one of the first things potential franchisees need to look at – business planning. I will discuss when a business plan is required, the importance of mapping out your business decisions as a tool to develop and grow your business, as well how to best utilise it to acquire funding for start-up or growth. I will impart seven killer tips for writing a great business plan and some common pitfalls that we see businesses make at this stage.

“As accountants and business advisors, our goal is to support franchised businesses by adding value to the numbers. We have been advising businesses for over 20 years now and work with over 100 franchised networks and 2,500 clients. As a result, our friendly team have the experience and expertise to support franchised businesses from day one and on an ongoing basis. 

“We are looking forward to the virtual International Franchise Show and will be happy to answer questions or have a chat online about how d&t can help you realise your franchising ambitions.”
