While Julia Hartman started the BAN TACS group she no longer owns any of the practices, only the web site. She is now the BAN TACS publicity tart and supports all our offices but rarely sees clients. BAN TACS is not a franchise, it is really more of a co op, giving clients, staff and practitioners all the benefits of a large firm within a much more personalised small practice environment.
Very affordable start-up costs that cover promoting your practice and updating the web site etc. with your details. The ongoing monthly fee is $225. You can opt out at any time, your commitment is on a monthly basis but of course the initial entry fee is not refundable. We also have the right to opt out if you are not prepared to meet our standards.
What You Get:
Your firm will receive a presence on this web site, economies of scale with printing etc. Together we manage to achieve quite good discounts on subscriptions and software. For example we have the numbers to provide you with a copy of the full suite of Software Assist programs, ledgers, tax return preparation, time costing etc. for a couple of hundred dollars a year. Usually this alone means we save you more than our monthly fee. We provide working papers, letter templates, calculators and Julia Hartman will provide you with written advice on specific tax related questions. We provide a phone a friend facility where we all list our areas of expertise so you know who to ring when you need help in an area where you lack detailed experience. We will regularly conference over skype to share tricks and insights. The sort of support you would expect in a big practice with the independence of operating your own business.
Training and materials for our rental property pre purchase kit. Articles for your local newspaper and 30 second radio tips. Monthly client newsletter and marketing stationary.
As required you will receive mentoring and assistance with systems to build your practice. Lots of reading to get you started. Your staff can ring Julia for advice while you are on holidays. The whole BAN TACS concept has developed from practitioners banding together for mutual benefit. Your territory will be your Federal electorate boundaries and two adjoining boundaries, you can choose which ones if they are available. No one can set up a BAN TACS office in this area without your agreement so you can reserve the whole area for yourself or charge an entry fee. If your area has a low population density then it is likely it is large enough to fit another spot on the map if you open another office. In this case there will be no extra charge for that additional spot. If you are interested in joining the BAN TACS group please contact Julia for much more specific details on 0428 381 864 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You do not have to be a large practice to be accepted, in fact it is more the opposite as the service we offer is just what a new practice needs to get up and running. Acceptance is more based on wanting to attain a high standard of client services combined with an easy going and nurturing attitude towards clients. We have many more exciting developments in mind as the group grows and will welcome your ideas, this is a co op not a franchise.
