Risk warnings and important information
None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
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.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.
All statements concerning the tax treatment of products and their benefits are based on our understanding of current tax law and HM Revenue and Customs’ practice. Levels and bases of tax relief are subject to change.

Best Franchise Opportunities in 2018

Franchise Opportunities in 2018

One type of investment often overlooked is the business franchise. There are a plethora of franchises available; the difficulty is choosing the franchise to fit your personality, your needs and most importantly, will make you money. Searching for the correct franchise can be overwhelming. The plus side to investing in a franchise is you do not have to establish your own business brand. You are buying into an established name, a proven business plan with name recognition backed by a larger organisation.

Not only do you acquire the business itself, but you also acquire the business training required to successfully run the franchise. Beware, though – not all franchises are good investment opportunities. Not only must you do your homework on what is available and what the market is demanding, but you also need to make sure the franchise is a member of the British Franchise Association, which requires a charter of ethical franchising before the company is allowed to become a member.

What do you need to become a franchisee? Money is usually not an issue because franchises are typically affordable. But, if you still need a loan, banks are usually willing to loan money for a franchise opportunity because it is a business considered a lower risk. What you will need are management skills, a serious work ethic and considerable self motivation. In addition, while this is ‘your’ business, you still must be willing to work within someone else’s business plan and framework. Sometimes this is difficult for an entrepreneur, but it is required in a franchise.

One you decide you would like to be a franchisee, you need to research franchise opportunities in the market. There are many resources to help you including a buyer’s checklist, a match site, a directory and many publications. Using all of these items, and taking the time to look into every franchise opportunity, will help lead you to a successful business enterprise.

There are thousands of franchise opportunities available in the United Kingdom, and further afield. 

As with any business start-up, adequate finance is required, not to mention an in-depth knowledge of the sector, and the potential pitfalls and stumbling blocks. Thorough research is an absolute must and professional advice is invaluable.

At Compare the Financial Markets we understand the franchise business and can provide the information you require to make a success of your franchise choice.
