Rosemary Bookkeeping

About Rosemary Bookkeeping™

The Rosemary bookkeeping franchise is based on a successful bookkeeping business which was established in 2002. Its unique bookkeeping system is built around charging clients per transaction rather than per hour.

Rosemary Bookkeeping is an accredited member of the British Franchise Association. The company Directors have over 60 years business and bookkeeping experience between them in the essential disciplines of accounting, operations management, sales and marketing.

There is a growing national network of established Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise partners (FP) in the UK, running the franchise as a management business or working on client accounts themselves.

3 Million Customers NEED this Service

According to the Federation of Small Businesses, almost 3 million customers NEED this service. By law, all businesses in the UK are required to keep records of their transactions which later are used by an accountant to file for tax and VAT. Managing these transactions is often the biggest headache to small business owners and a task that is left at the bottom of the pile.

Training, Qualifications & Time Commitments

Franchise Partners confidently use the Rosemary System® to provide accurate bookkeeping for clients without going through lengthy bookkeeping courses and examinations. Whilst some experience is required, formal bookkeeping qualifications are not because FPs are supported by Chartered Certified accountants and bookkeepers at Rosemary’s HQ.

This is a truly scalable business – work around the family from home or build into a management style business.

What our Franchise Partners have to say...

"The training we have received from Rosemary was at a very high level and delivered at the right pace. Two years on we are going from strength to strength, we have 2 sub-contractors working with us and our business is still growing month on month." Steve Brown, Newbury FP

"I am pleased to report that my bookkeeping franchise has grown twice as fast as I originally anticipated. I’ve taken on a part-time sub contractor and together we are working on providing a quality bookkeeping service. The support and guidance that I have received from the Rosemary network has been, and continues to be, fundamental to my success.” Christina Gray, Southampton FP

"The support and training received from the team at Rosemary Bookkeeping has been outstanding. Right from the start they covered every element of the business to ensure I felt comfortable and this was matched closely to my own skills and knowledge to focus on areas that I needed more help with. If you want to run your own business but like the idea of having someone to help you I would highly recommend Rosemary Bookkeeping." Belinda Whitaker, Chippenham FP
