The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.

Big Name Franchise Opportunities – Crunching numbers

The detailed expenditure breakdown of any franchise opportunity will differ from investment to investment. In the first instance, all franchisors are likely to ask a minimum sum of potential franchisees, and will work closely with investors on the numbers before reaching any agreement. A few UK franchise opportunities are currently available with the world’s largest chain of ice cream speciality stores, Baskin-Robbins, for which the financial qualification is a minimum £300,000.

Getting the ball rolling

Baskin-Robbins require that multi-store (five to ten outlets) investors are able to able to access at least £300k in liquid capital and have available funding of a further £700k to complete a roll-out of a ten-store portfolio over the course of two years. Within these sums there are standard franchise set-up costs to consider. The most common cost is a Franchising Fee, which can account for such as brand licensing, training and site selection, but precisely what the fee covers will differ from company to company.

Setting up shop

Other typical costs in setting up a franchise include the legal fees for a specialist Franchise Lawyer, who will review all documentation concerned with the transaction. Fitting, furnishing, equipping and decorating a retail premises, as well as installing signage, all in accordance with the franchisor’s corporate identity, represents another substantial set-up cost. The purchase of stock, all required supplies, and working capital for an agreed period must also be included in the total initial outlay.
